Future Elevators is the solo project of one Michael Shackelford, a musician of great experience: he’s played with The Rewinds, The Grenadines and Through The Sparks, among several others. That experience serves him well here, where he has full-control, playing every instrument on these fresh, creative pop songs. On Communicating Vessels.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 30 March 2016What would a future elevator look like? Anything like Mick Hucknall’s Frantic Elevators? This man is from Birmingham…..Alabama. Not Birmingham UK. He’s been in loads of bands, none of which I’ve ever heard of but despite that, the opening track ‘Rome On A Saturday’ is really growing on me. It’s nice soft pop which builds to quite a gorgeous closing bit where everything intertwines. It’s a scrubbed album with the odd R & B influenced particularly on ‘Modern World’ a track I don't like at all so I’ve slipped to ‘Losing Sleep’ which has a gorgeous '50s style to it with rich baritone vocals. Kind of like a pro-tools Chris Isaak. The other lesson I’m beginning to learn about the record is that stylistically it’s all over the shop. ‘Just Another Day’ has the pure acoustic melodicism of the best bits of Magnetic Fields. A very pleasant album of comforting modern day acoustic pop. It sometimes reminds me a bit of Pinback, sometimes a bit of Lindsey Buckingham’s solo stuff, elsewhere a bit like a bedroom version of the War On Drugs. Turned out there were only a couple of tracks I didn’t like. Therefore I'm pleased.
