Juan MacLean Sets Release
Unabashedly emotional, both in lyrically and musically, it's difficult not to let each song take over your head and body, turning you into the dancing, breathing robot Juan MacLean and Nancy Whang (of LCD Soundsystem) sing about.
With the help of DFA label mates Gerry Fuchs (formerly of !!!), Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel (both of Holy Ghost!), and, of course, Nancy, Juan was able to put together album full of surprises, book ended with two 2008 club hits, "The Simple Life" and "Happy House", that set the stage for the release of The Future Will Come. Opening with "The Simple Life", released to the masses last year, is dark and hypnotic. Closing with "Happy House", the Chicago House-heavy, International club anthem that graced many a 2008 best of lists from Pitchdork [They had to go and spoil the hype] to Time Out New York to the Village Voice's Pazz & Jop.
Also look out for a 12" and a video of the song "One Day", which The Juan MacLean just wrapped.
