Album Review: Forest Robots – Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One

Album Review: Forest Robots - Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One
Forest Robots’ first album examines the wonders of nature through music. ‘Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One’, was born after the LA composer explored the landscapes at Sierra Nevada. According to the artist, this record makes a call to spend more time outdoors, and it’s especially dedicated to his daughter. Furthermore, If I am not mistaken, he features some elements of classical music in conjunction with pure Electronica. In addition, the song titles seem to be taken from a very poetic world that is correlated with the album name. This turns out to be a fantasy story in the midst of nature but there are no vocals, just exquisite ambient sounds.

Following, you will enjoy my concrete analysis track-by-track.

1 – A Path Among the Woods
There’s a strong distortion that intentionally alters the smooth composition, but at the same time, this becomes a magical effect. On the other hand, the harp that can be heard throughout the song gives this intro track a touch of refinement.

2 – Times When I Know You Watch the Sky, Pt 1
The continuous chimes remind me a little of the Christmas season. Indeed, I also found myself immersed in its cinematic beat construction.

3 – Shapes Shifts in the Distant Shadows
Here we have lively electronic music and something more danceable in comparison with the previous two that are designed rather to contemplate them sitting on the sofa or lying on the bed.

4 – Last Silvers of Moonlight
A dark piano melody will captivate you from the beginning to the end. The first thing that comes to mind is a horror or thriller movie. An excellent piece that makes a contrast with the rest of the tracks of this album. I really think Forest Robots has a brilliant future as a composer of soundtracks for Hollywood movies.

5 – Silhouettes Follow the Echoes
For a moment, I felt I was floating in space. It might sound funny to say, but this song applies very well to astronauts. By all means, he creates a progressive tune and its rhythm becomes more intense little by little.

6 – Then the Spider Turned into a Cloud

The slow and gentle sound creates a mysterious atmosphere. I would venture to say he also incorporates oriental sounding instrumentation at the same time.

7 – Mandelbrots in Winter
At the start, I thought this was very relaxing but then the TR-808 drum beats came to provide dynamism and something vibrant to the whole song. Without this last element, this could have been a downtempo number.

8 – While Birds Dream of Dawn and Wind
Once again, I think he repeats the same synths that were used on the previous track. The only difference I found is the presence of new audio effects that seem to come from outer space.

9 – By the Stillness of the Lake
This is the shortest song from the album. With just one minute and seventeen seconds, Forest Robots designs a soundscape that feels delicate. A little melody that incites you to enter the alpha state of mind.

10 – Follow the Towers to the Moon
The album has a great ending with bright melodies. An array of colorful electronic textures are properly calibrated to leave listeners with a memorable experience.

In conclusion, if the day has you stressed or worries go round and round in your head, then ‘Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One’ is the best free medicine. Just close your eyes and chill out with these wonderful compositions.

Big Gigantic Brighter Future Vol II

Big Gigantic will be taking their big, gigantic show on the road this winter for a twenty-date trek across the U.S, and they’ll be bringing along an incredibly eclectic group of supporting acts who were just announced today; Tvboo, Eazybaked, Smoakland, A Hundred Drums, Ahee, Jaenga, Superave, Levity, Lizzie Jane and MZG. This veritable who’s who of up-and-coming electronic artists will be appearing in different combinations at different shows; full details along with dates, tickets, and more can be found here.

The Brighter Future Tour Vol II will cap a wildly successful run which started last June with the release of the Brighter Future 2 album. Stacked with anthems like “Keep on Rising” [feat. Aloe Blacc], “Open Your Mind” [with GRiZ], “Just the Same” [feat. Vic Mensa & Mick Jenkins], and “Free” [feat. Elohim] the album became an instant classic for the band. To add to the celebratory launch of the tour, Big Gigantic just released a re-work of the aforementioned “Keep On Rising”, just in time for the tour kick-off in Columbia, SC on 2/1.

Brighter Future Tour Vol II
Known for genre-bending production, live instrumentation, and a dedicated relationship with fans, Big Gigantic first amplified their hopeful message for the future on Brighter Future in 2016. It reeled in hundreds of millions of streams independently and touted bangers a la “All of Me” [feat. Logic & ROZES], “The Little Things” [feat. Angela McCluskey], “Highly Possible” [feat. Waka Flocka Flame], “Wide Open” [feat. Cherub], and more. Their music would be utilized by everyone from Apple, Wimbledon, NASCAR, NBA, HBO, and Fox to the trailers for Valerian and Dirty Grandpa. They’ve ignited the bills of Coachella, Lollapalooza, ULTRA Music Festival, Hangout Music Festival, Electric Forest, and Bonnaroo. Plus, they headline and consistently sell out their own Rowdytown at Red Rocks Amphitheatre—now in its 11th year for 2022. Putting their words into action, they run the 501(c)3 A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation, which supports non-profits for at-risk youth, music education, and more. Thus far, they have raised $1 million-plus for charity. In the midst of the Global Pandemic, they continued to create, pushing forward towards what would become Brighter Future 2.
