Dark, ethereal UK producer Forest Swords is just one week away from the release of his new album Engravings, which follows 2010’s excellent debut, Dagger Paths. Before that day arrives, however, you can stream the album a week in advance, courtesy of Pitchfork Advance.
Yesterday on Twitter, Forest Swords mainman Matthew Barnes Tweeted a suggestion to not listen to the album on bad laptop speakers and, perhaps, listen on headphones instead. He has since removed that suggestion, however, though we’ll back him up on that one. Don’t deny yourself the complete experience.
