Future Clouds and Radar is Robert Harrison’s follow-up to his band Cotton Mather. The first album, an eponymous double CD, was released in 2007.


Like Cotton Mather, Future Clouds and Radar has been described as being of the powerpop genre. The first album received high praise from critics, drawing comparisons to The Flaming Lips, 13th Floor Elevators, Electric Light Orchestra, Robert Pollard, Robyn Hitchcock, John Lennon, World Party, and the Kinks. David Greenberger says "...file this next to the White Album."
