Constant Future is the career-defining statement from Brooklyn-based noise-pop trio Parts &Labor. The album's 12 tracks deliver the bare essentials that made them sui generis totems ofmodern art-punk: synthesized keyboard riffs distorted into oblivion, percussion pummeledhypnotically, crackling drones that haunt and soothe, fearless melodies hollered skyward. Their lastrelease, 2008's acclaimed Receivers, saw Parts & Labor blasting off in all directions and creatingcollage art from hundreds of fan-curated samples. But fifth album Constant Future finds themcrashing back to earth, focusing pointedly on what they do best: unique, electronic landscapesmelded with buzzing, anthemic hooks. Parts & Labor have distilled the lessons and experiences ofnearly 10 years as a band into a catchy, blown-out masterwork.
