MP3 of the Day #93: Forest Fire

Now this is quite a great sound – chilled out and relaxed, a great tune from Firest Fire, who are gearing up to release their debut album, Survival.

It was recorded over an eight month period in two locations – Brooklyn, New York and Portland, Oregon. To record Survival the band set up a microphone in the centre of the studio and arranged themselves around it. Singer/songwriter Mark Thresher commented: “We wanted to make really simple organic live recordings complete with flaws. Is was very important to us to start with something spontaneous. We usually chose to include performances that were wild and unhinged over more polished versions because we wanted that energy. Once we had the recordings we liked we overdubbed and processed them to make them sound as good as possible.”

It’s really quite beautiful. Sit back, listen and ease yourself into your Tuesday morning!
