 I guess this is going to be one of those chill, atmospheric posts, huh? Anyhow, another wonderful proggy post-whatever release comes from Forlesen, a collective comprised of accomplished musicians such as: drummer Sam Gutterman, who played on Kayo Dot's masterpiece Choirs of the Eye, Balan of Palace of Worms and, of course, formerly of Botanist; and Alex Lindo of Botanist and Nero Order. A lot of creative firepower, in other words, one utilized, it should be said, for dramatic advances in the field of subtlety and nuance, especially when compared to some of the more maximalist work in the back catalogue of these artists. Slow-paced, mesmerizing, and beautiful. Oh and cover of the year goes to Benjamin A. Vierling. FFO: Urfaust, The Ruins of Beverast, Rosetta
