Time and timelessness. Every now and then a musician manages to step out of the constantly evolving and trending cycles to release music that stands for itself. Francis Juno – Tomorrow’s Nostalgia is an album that evokes this feeling from the first second.
BRUNO SCHNÜRIGER – well known for his part in Swiss dark electronic duo Echo 106 – channels his softer, melodic output through his alias Francis Juno. On his first solo album, he presents a collection of 15 tracks and interludes that draw a bow from wide-open downtempo tracks, over clackering dancefloor reminiscences to hyper-powered IDM electronica.
Tomorrow’s Nostalgia tells the stories of arrival, timelessness and leisure, looking back and staying alive. Evoking distant memories and narratives from the subconsciousness, the album is an invitation to immerse into sound. Unsophisticated, with no urging push to the dancefloor – but a distinct drive to tap one’s foot. Charming, catchy, almost naïve at first glance, Francis Juno’s tracks reveal a mesmerizing complexity over time. Schnüriger uncovers his musical diversity and variability with every minute the record spins on the turntable. Nostalgia not as vanishing point, but as a performative time machine.
