Future Perfect is the debut full-length album by Autolux (released November 21, 2004) on T-Bone Burnett's label, DMZ, under Columbia. Future Perfect was recorded in Los Angeles at Sunset Sound and was produced by T-Bone Burnett. The opening track on the album, "Turnstile Blues", was known for its heavy, distinctive drumbeat and musical atmosphere. A Pitchfork review stated, "In the first 10 seconds of the album opener, Carla Azar shames most every beat-maker with her ridiculous Leibezeit-cum-Bonham percussion."

Vinyl releases[edit]

Aside from the CD, DMZ released Future Perfect as a 2LP set, which has since gone out of print. After the label's demise, Autolux reissued the album themselves on one 180-gram LP on autolux dot net (with no edits or changes to the track listing despite the long running time), which remains in print.
