Well I am pretty much in love with Forest Swords new album Engravings. It’s dark, original and bassy. Reminds me of wandering away from a rave in the middle of the night with the distant echoes of euphoria following me. It feels like Matthew Barnes exists in a genre of his own, you definitely feel somewhere else when you listen to it. Supposedly many of the tracks were mixed outside in the north-west Wirral Peninsula and this makes sense, almost adding to the mystery.
The Weight Of Gold for me is the best track on the album and is the perfect introduction to his sound. Lovely.
