The Juan Maclean (actually the more prosaically-named John MacLean) is a former member of Six Finger Satellite who has become something of a DFA mainstay. Th Future Will come was his second album from 2009 which he wrote with LCD Soundsystem member Nancy Whang helped out by synth duo Holy Ghost. It is heavily influenced by the Human League both in its synth-led sound and with the male/female narrative that runs through its ten tracks.

The irony of the title of The Juan MacLean's sophomore album 'The Future Will Come' is immediately apparent the second the laser hits the spinning disc and the first track fades in. Dusting off an old Korg and a drum machine, The Juan MacLean sound as if they've locked themselves in a room with Human League and Heaven 17 LPs circa 1982. The entire album is superb, retro-inspired yet forward-looking pop electronica. This fine effort leaves me wanting more.
The Future Will Come again and I can't wait until it does.
