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.

Track Name: Nuclear Shockwave
Save yourself, when the light comes flickering
a nuclear candle in the bright noon sky
duck inside, down to the basement
where we huddle beside the old refrigerator

Then the nuclear shockwave
warm bath of radiated light
in the white light heat wave
oh I think I see the face of God
as I am split

Dust to dust, eyes to eyelids
skin to cement, mind to light
time is still, we're all dreaming
I dream of lying, in my lover's embrace


Track Name: Current Fiction
O I cast my line out straight as the walls were tightening
the umbrella lover walks with me
thru the rain
by the swollen creek

I can see the power lines react with the lightening
images from the television
burned on
to my waking vision

there's a brand new rip that runs down
Allen Ginsburg's pant leg
and the Poet in his wisdom
says "I like a little air on my leg"

O the anti bodies got my body
this gunfighter disease
only speaks
with a six gun

shoved hard into my gut
and when I least can deal with it
he shoots one

there's a brand new crack that runs thru
all the faces on my TV
and the Pundits in their wisdom
say "I like my job on TV"

O but I ain't down
not like I used to be
cause there's little bodies
little bodies
gonna cure my disease

O and I ain't down
not like I used to be
O my body
O my body
feels like a disease
