There’s nothing like a good ambient record to decompress and whisk yourself away from your everyday struggles and worries. Now, this is a remix EP, for the most part, taking songs from Mute Forest’s album Deforestation. We do get two new songs, however, for those who loathe remix releases there’s your incentive to grab this. Your other incentive should be to see what the artists who remixed these cooked up – I’ve got my eye on what KILN has done myself. “Glass of Sand Water,” in combination with the lush cover, brings me back to my days as a 3-4 year old visiting my grandfather who lived on Bainbridge Island at the time (it’s off the coast of Seattle). Whenever my family visited, the island was always swamped with fog and mist so it was always very dreamlike to me… it’s probably why I like the rain and cold so much now that I think about it. “Glass of Sand Water” sounds like the cold forest floor on that plot in the Puget Sound – that’s how I’ll describe it. If you like The Album Leaf’s earlier work especially, give this a go. Listen to “Glass of Sand Water” below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
