STREAM: Forest Swords – Engravings (Album)

Share Button

This album leaked about a week ago, and has since become one of my favorite releases of 2013 thus far. Swords’ previous release, Dagger Paths, was a fascinating and arresting blend of post-rock, electronics and dub; but the resulting jigsaw puzzle of influences and ideas had some rough edges and uneasy fits. Here those moments of (admittedly charming) incongruence are smoothed away in favor of a more polished and cohesive sound – here Forest Swords is making music that is all his, no longer a sum of other’s parts.
