ORGAN THING: The quietly glorious expanse of A Dead Forest Index…

A DEAD FOREST INDEX

A DEAD FOREST INDEX

Friday? Some things? Three things? or maybe just two? No just one, too good ot share a page with whoever was going to be the other thing.  A Dead Forest Index has shared the latest cut from their debut album In All That Drifts From Summit Down, out April 29th on Sargent House. A melancholic dreamy number, “a more brooding Mazzy Star…” according to some website more important than this one, and yes that’s vaguely on the mark and who needs anything more than vague when you have your own mind and the music right here in the page. Words are worthless, what’s wordsworth? They do have this beautifully elegant sweep to their sound, an expansive space, a beautiful emptiness that’s so full, this is a resonantly beautiful thing, an understated knowing that less is indeed more and who needs words

So have A Dead Forest Index got anything else?  It is still about albums isn’t it, bodies of work? There’s a couple of tracks here from the band from Auckland, New Zealand, there on their bandcamp page, they do have something else, clearly they do, this new album is out at the end of April, rather looking forward to hearing the whole thing

And their previous release from 2012 is endlessly illuminating as well
