Futurebirds have been tearing up venues with their rollicking, sweat-filled live concerts for a long time now and have earned a reputation for putting on amazing shows. So it’s not surprise that two back-to-back October 26 shows in New Orleans were received as well as they were. Off Beat was at the scene for both shows, and turned in a great review that not only describes the band’s performance but gives an overview of many of the tracks on the band’s “a deeply personal, reflective” new album Hotel Parties. Of the band, Off Beat wrote, “Whether played live in a laid-back record store, or late and loud in the Vieux Carré, or at home on vinyl, the sound is crisp and refined.” Read the whole thing here.
The Columbia Tribune also loves the band, publishing a glowing endorsement before their show in the Missouri town on October 29. “Futurebirds live at the vanguard of the new Southern rock,” the paper wrote. “Fluent in multiple musical languages, the band creates seamless country-rock songs that get their breath and being from ringing pedal steel and a reverb daze.” Read the article, which calls Hotel Parties the band’s “finest work yet,” here.
