Premiere: Forest Management – Mother

Since his first album came out in 2012, Chicago-based artist and composer John Daniel – better known as Forest Management – has been stacking up releases at an astounding rate, putting out countless EPs and up to 25 full-length records in five years, including a hefty lot of self-released pieces. Amply meditative and soothingly inward-gazing, Daniel’s craft is defined by its whelming power of virtualisation – opening wide-scope bays onto the human soul – its emotional scars, trauma and simple pleasures – as well as the infinite regenerative virtue of music and art.

Hot on the heels of a handful tape albums and another couple EPs in 2018, Forest Management returns with ‘21st Century Man‘ – his second vinyl release after the 2015-released ‘Encounter‘. Lifted from this new age odyssey-like album that gives further prominence to Daniel’s otherworldly soundscapes, we’re happy to present you the LP’s heart-rending closer, ‘Mother‘ – a track that ebbs and flows with the quiet of a suspended nostalgic tide but is geared to fracture one’s most solid shell with its all-devouring light – a bright beam of hope radiating across an ocean of sorrow. We bet you that the tears are going to flow with this one; tears of joy, pain and gratitude. Sublime.

21st Century Man is released via Terrible Cloud Records on 17th August, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
