Stream Forest Swords' 'Engravings' LP for Tri Angle Now
- Words: Tim Gentles
Last month, idiosyncratic UK producer/musician Forest Swords (a.k.a. Matthew Barnes) shared details of his long-awaited follow-up to 2010's outstanding Dagger Swords EP. Called Engravings, Barnes debut LP is now available to stream in full before it drops via Tri Angle next week. Recorded in his home area of the Wiral in Northwest England, the new record reprises Dagger Swords' intoxicating amalgam of desolate dub textures, R&B-influenced rhythms, grainy production, and Ennio Morricone-esque guitar work, but perhaps with the heightened sense of focus gained by time and experience. Engravings will see release on August 26, but can be listened to in its entirety here, courtesy of Pitchfork Advance.
