Inspired by the transhumanist philosopher of the same name, Cole and Bambi Browning’s psychedelic 2017 debut as Reptaliens, FM-2030, is an album of disarmingly pleasant sunbeam-pop melodies that disguise the darker themes lurking underneath its caramelly guitar riffs and shimmering synth. Even the record’s bubbliest moments feel a little off—love songs like “29 Palms” verge on obsession, while standout track “666Bus” finds Bambi contemplating the potential that “Maybe I’ll get hit by a bus/While I was dreaming of falling in love/Or maybe I’ll fall in love and die of a broken heart.” FM-2030 feels like a purgatory between woozy daydream and nightmare, with constant references to Satan, mortality, and apocalyptic sci-fi, but that’s what elevates its songs to creepy pop perfection.
