Portland one-man psychiatric pop progenitor Mattress' latest six-song cassette is called Fuck the Future, although it's less a dystopian look forward than it is simply a statement to live in the now. And while the man behind the curtain, Rex Marshall, seems to draw influence from both the future and the past, his dark synth hymns are very much embedded in the present. The EP's first track, "Beautiful Moment," sounds like someone confessing to doing wrong, but still relishing the experience. In fact, there seems to be an underlying bright side in all this darkness, but that doesn't mean Mattress won't keep you up at night contemplating your own future. MARK LORE
