In ‘Future Tense‘, Super Tuesday, the brainchild of singer/songwriter Alex Kisch, delivers a captivating blend of indie rock, alt-country, and folk-pop that deftly navigates through a spectrum of emotions and themes. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Big Star, REM, and Wilco, while also incorporating elements reminiscent of contemporary artists such as Mac DeMarco and Bartees Strange, Kisch proves himself a versatile musician with a distinct voice and vision.

Having made his mark in the 90s with alt-rockers Dirt Merchants, Kisch took a hiatus only to resurge with a renewed creative energy during the Covid pandemic. ‘Future Tense‘ marks Super Tuesday’s third album following the well-received ‘Just Right‘ released in 2022, and it showcases Kisch’s evolution as a songwriter and performer.

The album kicks off with propulsive indie rock tracks like ‘The Future of Your Past’ and ‘I Know Their Names’, where infectious melodies intertwine with Kisch’s evocative vocals. These tracks set the tone for an exploration of dark themes, from technological change to social isolation, which are woven throughout the album’s lyrics.

Transitioning seamlessly, Super Tuesday delves into Americana territory with tracks like ‘Let ‘Em Down Easy’ and ‘Quicksand’, where twangy guitars and poignant storytelling evoke a sense of nostalgia and longing. The introspective acoustic tracks such as ‘Slow It Down’ and ‘Inside’ offer moments of quiet reflection, showcasing Kisch’s lyrical prowess and ability to convey raw emotion with simplicity and sincerity.

One standout track is ‘Stephen Pollack Day Parade’, a poignant reflection on mortality and the passage of time, underscored by haunting melodies and introspective lyrics that linger long after the song ends.

Future Tense‘ is a testament to Super Tuesday’s ability to seamlessly blend genres while maintaining a cohesive sound and vision. It’s an album that rewards repeated listens, revealing new layers of depth and meaning with each spin. With its rich musical tapestry and thought-provoking lyrics, ‘Future Tense‘ cements Super Tuesday’s place as a force to be reckoned with in the indie music scene.
