Lately I’ve been slowly making my way through Mark Fisher’s “Ghosts of My Life” and his essay “The Slow Cancellation of the Future”, while I don’t completely agree with it, got me thinking: What sounds like the future to you, at the moment?
While I was writing this post I stumbled upon the Futurism in 2018 thread, which was a great read! A lot of really valid points in there to consider - including the fact that futurism isn’t exactly the most solid concept and the question itself is somewhat misguided.
But nevertheless, I’m in a spot in my life where I’m finding the idea of the future personally useful - being able to have a feeling of control over my future through music selection is something that’s giving me a lot of hope right now. So! Maybe it’s worth approaching from a personal standpoint: What does your future sound like right now?
For me, at the moment, it’s these records.
