the word “dank” is getting thrown around a lot to describe the music of liverpool’s forest swords. and while that suits the deep dub zoned vibe to these tracks there’s also some elements that transcend the “dub” label – namely a morricone western flick vibe to the reverbed guitar lines. check the “glory gongs” video below for a preview. and definitely scope the mixtape forest swords made for our friends at gorilla vs. bear earlier this week. it’s extra dank.
“dagger paths” features six tracks – four of which were previously available on limited cassette releases and two brand new tracks. but if you own the tapes or have downloaded tape rips then prepare for a big surprise because all of the tracks were superbly remastered in full 24-bit fidelity by carl saff in chicago.
