Some three years after Forest Swords emerged in impressive fashion with the widely regarded Daggers Path, the Wirral based producer returns with a fuller exposition of his spectral sound on a debut album. Released quite appropriately on Tri Angle, Engravings worms its way into your cerebral cortex and the ten track set reveals itself to be a richer, more varied display of the ideas formed on that Forest Swords debut. Allegedly mixed down on a laptop whilst Forest Swords producer Matthew Barnes was camped out in the Wirral countryside, there's a sense of the exposed and organic that powerfully hits home. Highlights include the stuttering headnod of "Irby Terror" and "Onward" which sounds like Andy Stott shooting lasers in a cave.
