Futur Primitif is the new project from songwriter and singer Daniel Lefkowitz. The upcoming album Machineteeth was recorded live with a full band made up of members of the Low Anthem.
A change of direction for Lefkowitz, Machineteeth drifts thru garage band rock n roll numbers, abandoning the persistent topic of love in exchange for an extended riff on the new, globalized American landscape. Described by an early critic as, “John Cougar Mellencamp meets Pavement,” it’s surely the most anticipated motorcycle accident since Bob Dylan.
Futur Primitif is currently performing as an electric duo, incorporating elements of Velvet Underground era rock, sparse folk, and a fearless approach to the wall of sound. Having performed to rapt audiences from London to Los Angeles, 2011 brought the band to the Bowery Ballroom in NYC , the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, and the main stage of the End of the Road Festival in Dorset, UK, among other performances.
