And While We’re Talking about Forest Records
You better believe that in the run-up to FOREST X, the music arm of Forest has been dropping great free releases like a goose. If you haven’t visited the website and grabbed a dose of awesome new music, do so now!
Here’s a selection of my favourites!
Jack Richold and Faith Nicholson unite and conquer!
The Sea is Salt lull you into a dreamy wonderland with sparse guitar, piano and violin overlaid with achingly lush vocals. Then, just when everything seems safe and sublime, they release a pack of wild bears to go roaring for the throat. Kennoway and Star is their debut EP, comprising four musical nuggets of folklore, laments and Elvis mythology. Download it for free now!
“Mushroom hunters refer to fungi in the genus Boletus as boletes. However, individual species vary widely: some boletes are tasty edibles, while others cause severe distress. Boletes are harvested all over the world, but proper identification can be tricky.”
Sycamore Drive’s latest album – a collection of unreleased chipmusic tracks from 2009-2010 – out now!
