Yes and Queen, (all bands to which comparisons have been drawn with Once And Future Band), would be enough to send most of us diving for cover.

Jam in the Van - Once and Future Band (Live Session) - Single.

Once and Future Band: this incredibly accomplished cabal of total prog wizards has circled the earth, but then, these are the accomplished gentlemen of many former pursuits (the formidable Drunk Horse among them) and all of them comets themselves. The very mid 70s vibe at work here surpasses pastiche, and crests that lovely anachronistic conceptual peak: a fully realized and meticulously arranged psych record, meant to be listened to from top to bottom, with the lights down low and in a comfy chair perhaps, or while gazing out the window of your life pod.

The debut album from Californian meta pop wizards Once & Future Band blasts off with a huge sugar rush of stomping drums and starburst fanfares, immediately laying its cards on the table. Unselfconsciously indebted to the big soft rock sounds of the mid-70s, this is music that manages to be both ‘easy’ and ‘difficult’ at the same time, the references it abounds with sometimes getting in the way of its enjoyment. But this is a clever and accomplished album, even if listening to it feels like an audaciously decadent experience in these uncertain times. In the vapor trail of How Does It Make You Feel,' the first track on this self-titled full length, one can smell the burnt ozone of a sey, the flakes floating down and landing like snow, giving grave-chills. the ash of a masterpiece pop song.

Once and Future Band. How Does It Make You Feel?, 05:57.

How Does It Make You Feel? is the question that Once & Future Band posed on the lead single off of their self-titled debut. The answer, at least for me, is like I’m watching a lava lamp while seated comfortably in the lounge of my state-of-the-art rocketship, which is currently blasting off into space. Any attempt to describe the Oakland band’s sound inevitably devolves into a catalog of their influences - mostly ’70s touchstones like Yes, Genesis, Steely Dan, ELO, Queen, and Pink Floyd - but their music is so much more than nostalgic pastiche
