"I see images of crumbling factories, unfolding on Super 8 film, the calm after the chaos of extreme weather events, and a world slowly folding in on itself in slow motion. These drones are for those inhabiting a desolate planet. This album is the Dead Flag Blues, yet in fragility, calm, and reflection we can rekindle our spirits. There is joy and gratitude in staring at the abyss, in staring at the other side. There is birth in desolation and devastation. The Forest Is Sleeping Within The Trees (Scissor Tail Editions) is a stunning release for fans of James Leyland Kirby’s The Caretaker project, William Basinski, Eluvium, and Loscil."

"THE FOREST sets aside the lyrical leanings of his previous label releases - HORROR FICTION's SANGE TIL DOENDE and PHINERY's FRAVAERSMINDER - as most of his self released tapes have done, honing in on a more intimate and minimalist dark ambient vibe, similar to his engrossing alternate soundtrack to LA JETEE titled HE REMEMBERS THERE WERE GARDENS, delivering a gorgeous collection of sparse hypnotic piano etudes set against hushed synth backdrops exuding equal parts anxiety, beauty and lethargy."
