Forest Swords  'Compassion' out now on Ninja Tune πŸ“Œ Mgmt: tom@giantartistmanagement.com Live: mike@earth-agency.com


πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί Final copies of 'Bank Robber/In The Same Car' by Moscow based producer Zurkas Tepla, released last year on ltd cassette via my label Dense Truth are now online.
πŸ“ŒSide A is a concept piece about a bank robbery: disintegrated electronics, blurry samples and negative space techno, echoing the wild paranoia and messy adrenaline of a heist in first person. Side B is set in a 1990s Russian vehicle, investigating memory and reality via deep, smeared sounds.

πŸ‘‚ Listen on Spotify/iTunes/Bandcamp.

Thanks for a wild year and to everyone who took time out to listen to the album or come to a show. I'm looking fwd to making new music in some form. Onward to 2018.

Portraits from the 'Compassion' inner booklet

Ears hurt, guzzling medicine, in need of sleep β€” but wanted to say a thank you to everyone who made it out to watch at festivals and on my headline tour this year. Every day was overwhelming and surprising. Travelling and being in new spaces can be strange and anxiety-riddled and extreme, but it's a powerful way to force myself out of my comfort zone. I've realised the more I play and meet people, the more I understand those threads between sound and human connection better β€” something I was keen to explore with 'Compassion'. Also that being serious about making this kind of music doesn't mean it can't translate to fun, transformative, joyful experiences. I'll be opening a new chapter next year at festivals β€” trying some things out with new collaborators, projects + performances. Always, FSx .
+ Thanks to those who made it happen: @thomasdavidking @richaustensmith @hirokishirasuka @liverpoolmusicweek @earthagency @easytigerben @aceagrams @ellis_samizdat @ninjatune @bandsonboard @jamesbinary @samwiehl @_dialect, all the promoters at shows and artists I've shared lineups with, and the late Jon Hall.
