Demdike Stare - Forest of Evil (2010)


For fans of: Oneohtrix Point Never, The Caretaker, Vladislav Delay

The space in this music seems to me as important as anything. It allows the build of an atmosphere that, once acted upon, is unlike anything you can get without that space. It's very natural, as if you're on a hike while under some kind of psychedelic influence, and you randomly come across some interesting creatures. You don't know if what you're seeing or hearing is really there or if it's just your imagination it, but whatever it is, it's incredibly intriguing. There are nice stings in the music and an ambiance that is followed by and added upon with dubby percussion and electronic drones. It's an exiting exploration of ideas and new possibilities that has me anxiously awaiting their promised next two 2010 releases. - Matthew Foster
