IS ENERGY

by FOREST MAGIC

/
  • ..."I can honestly say he [Dolphin Mouth] gave me a real challenge when attempting to write about FOREST MAGIC’s sound. The first track, “SONAR SWELL” screams post-rock, but following track, “RETURN STROLL”, breaks into crazy math-folk beats . Eventually they go back to a post-rock theme but it never stays constant, which makes this an interesting album. It’s spontaneous and ever-changing, but it’s never done in a bad way that bothers you, more a way that excites your ears. The stand-out track for me was “DESIGNED”, with its building guitar tones and exceptionally beautiful strings arrangement. FOREST MAGIC can’t seem to find a sound, but that’s exactly what makes them unique. Whether going from folk, to math-rock, to psych-pop, to post-rock, they sound comfortable in any of the music they are making."

Track Name: SONAR SWELL
Last night, we were blown.
Dark skies, please leave us alone.
Track Name: RETURN/STROLL
Here we are Legendre, we are home.

Even though, we've been to distant shores,
we still know where we came from.
We've returned, and now we're home, and we know that the end of man is to know.
We take a stroll, we take a stroll, down the pathway to your favorite hiding place.
And once we're there, I'll stroke your pretty hairs, and we will laugh all the day long.
Track Name: O
O how I love this place, I wrap a yellow scarf around my baby's face.
I love to work upon the trails, I get that dirt underneath my nails.
And when it's time to go to bed, my baby comes up to pet my head.

O

And when we wake up in the mornin', all our friends are out explorin.'
We work off love and good nutrition, we take our time with our decisions.
Timelessness in in our favor.
We could do it now, or maybe later.

O

We try to ward off indescretions.
We battle fights with mindful questions.
We try to live our lives more simply than those who stay inside the city.
And even with our dirty knees, we love our lives our families. Say,

O
Track Name: DESIGNED
Ease your mind, and sit back, relax, forget you're right here.
The stars seem to align in your favor, and maybe, they'll favor mine.

The night sky with it's beautiful light encourages us to elevate.
Are the stars designed? Or are they sneezed out randomly?
Track Name: TEETH
My teeth, my teeth go chomp chomp chomp...
Track Name: WONDER IF
Every night I go into my room
And I wonder what ever happened to you
Could it be that you are far away?
Or do I almost pass by you every day?
I just lie there thinking of our younger ways
When we would sit there and we would talk oh yeah, we would say:
Where do you think you'll be in ten years?
I don't know I just don't wann be sheddin' no tears.

I wonder if you know I think of you
Is it possible that you might think of me?
I wonder if you know

And what would even happen if we every met again
My face would seem as though it had a permanent grin
We could sit around and talk and laugh and drink and play
We could maybe fall in love that day

I wonder if you know I think of you
Is it possible that you might think of me?
I wonder if you know
Track Name: FLASHLIGHT
I just want to know where you'll be
Took my flashlight looking for you
Out amongst the leaves
It's way too cold to be out here
And there's creatures creepin' everywhere
Oh, lord declare it to be true
That I might find a piece of you
Track Name: BACK WHEN...
We once were new
We came back for you
Growth and we're taught
Now we must choose

We once were new
We came back for you
Truth and we're taught
Now we must choose
Track Name: IT IS GOOD
When the wire touches wood
Time goes in reverse
When bare feet meet the ground
What we see become sound
When that sound enters ears
Music's written by our tears
Oh, it is good
Oh, it is good
