Lest you be sucked in, remember – the irony is that these are people who never buy a single CD or pay for a download. They believe their music should appear, for zero pence, in their pigeonholes, as reward for their invaluable service to the music industry. They’ll also occasionally rally against Pirate Bay. Oh the irony.
Thankfully, their days are numbered. Who needs words in a world of Spotify and peer-to-peer?
And, as we’ve discovered, the pen is most definitely less mighty than the Sword…
Actually a one-man West Wirral Outfit, Forest Swords’ new single – Rattling Cage – is out next week. Buy it on limited edition 7″ vinyl here.
But what’s it sound like? Well, it’s a gauzy palimpsest of cinematic, lo-fi textures. It’s somewhere between Glitchadelia and Bedroom DroneDub. Oh hotdamn. And we were doing so well…
Just listen. It’s good.
Full disclosure: We know Forest Swords. He is our friend. But we’d recommend this even if he hated us. Which he probably does now.
