Record Review: Watter — “History of the Future”

History of the Future, Watter’s sophomore record, explores well beyond the band’s initial trajectory, adding a wider scope and scale to their compositions. This iteration of Watter, replete with a roster of guest musicians, feels like a natural extension, a modern update on Western music through the lens of instrumental indie. The end result is cinematic, at times muscular, as in the song “Macho Milano,” but Watter maintains a sense of mystery throughout. You can tell this is the dawn of a new era for the band.
