AUSTRA - Future Politics
Notify me when back in stock
Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Future Politics, AustraÆs third, and most ambitious album to date, calls for radical hope: ôa commitment to replace the approaching dystopia,ö says Katie Stelmanis. ôNot just hope in the future, but the idea that everyone is required to help write it, and the boundaries of what it can look like are both fascinating and endless. ItÆs not about æbeing political,Æ itÆs about reaching beyond boundaries, in every single field.ö A collection of urgent, but disciplined anthems for dancefloor and headphones, Future Politics asks each of us to remember that apocalypse is not an inevitability, but the product of human decision-making. It aims for a world without borders, where human compassion and curiosity drive technological innovation rather than profit, where the necessity of labor is replaced with time for creativity and personal growth, and the terror and destruction wrought by colonialism and white supremacy is recognized as a dark age in human history. The album is radicalism distilled: to galvanic beats, gorgeous, kinetic melodies, and the vulnerable majesty of StelmanisÆs voice. With its steady, propulsive beats and siren-like synth hooks, itÆs both anthem and ultimatum: we have a duty to imagine better, and to imagine big.

GENERAL CATALOGUE INFORMATION
We aim to provide up to date images of the products and accurate information. However, product detail may change from time to time and there may be a delay in making updates.
We understand some collectors are after a particular variant of coloured, transparent or marbled vinyl, however in most cases these varieties are released in limited quantities for the first pressing - then revert to "plain ordinary" black vinyl - with the same barcode and catalogue number. It is now common practice by record companies to release a first pressing on coloured vinyl of some titles to help promote the album on its initial release.
