There’s a strong connection between artist & music when crafted & composed originally, from the heart. The album is one to await if you love rock, pop-rock, impressive guitar work, and just about anything in between.
Not enough artists in hip hop are pushing to make these kind of waves anymore, so this is a joy to discover. A really well crafted & thoughtful project. Great music.
Eclecticism is defiantly a part of this project, but even so – you get a feel for the progression, the voices, the style, the subject matter. The band have something that is their’s, and that’s exciting.
Three minutes & forty seconds of precise audio representation for the concept implied by the title. The music has the rhythm & rising intensity of a somewhat epic march towards something meaningful.
A welcome reminder of the classic Depeche Mode approach to music & performance, the likes of which aren’t found all that often in modern music. There’s a sense of seductive drama to it all, the essence of which Dobie has captured pretty perfectly.
A classic hip hop backdrop & vibe – thick beats, rhythm, simple & scene-setting chord progressions. The artist flaunts his own approach to performance & lyricism, adjusting to the changing pace of the music accordingly.
Undeniably authentic, mildly reminiscent of the acoustic rock sound of the nineties, but at the same time completely refreshing & hypnotically calming. A totally unique band right now, this album is something of a masterpiece.
At the same time as appearing unusual, quirky even, there’s a definite touch of professionalism & well-crafted musicality, which makes it a dream to escape to.
The structure of this is everything, the sounds are unquestionable – the intro is peaceful & reflective, calming, but it’s the rising level of complexity, the increasing details, that really make this something special.
The effects make it feel as if you’re seeing something you shouldn’t be, leaked footage maybe, which adds to that element of drama & makes sense alongside of the song’s subject matter.
They are always short, the lyrics, always seeming like mere snippets of deeper thoughts or poems. It works within these high energy, ever-shifting soundscapes. You’d know a Gonetcha record after spending even just a little time with these songs.
The project in full is where the true beauty & strength exists. Forest Robots is a perfectly fitting name for an artist who crafts these kind of considerate & conscious arenas of music.
