Forest Swords — Engravings

Forest Swords — Engravings

Engravings is a dark, airy, minimalist set of compositions from British composer/producer Matthew Barnes. I doubt there’s an album that more artfully blends organic and electronic sounds on every single track. The result is a haunting affair, the subtle expression of an incredibly creative mind that transports you to an enchanted wooded wasteland and leaves you to fend for yourself among the whispers of tormented spirits.

Listen to a single from the album below, and then check out the whole thing on Rdio or buy it on iTunes. It's my go-to when I need instant calm — a real gem for any work/focus playlist.
