Library Tapes [http://www.myspace.com/librarytapes]
A firm Forest of Sound favourite, Library Tapes (a.k.a. David Wenngren, from Gavle, Sweden) is the master of pure, minimalist piano based beauty. Having started from a completely stripped down approach, the Library Tapes sound has evolved to include sparingly used but perfectly balanced strings (provided by the wondeful Peter Broderick) and found sound, and is quite simply stunning. Seeing him perform live in the gorgeous surroundings of the Holy Trinity Church is something not to be missed!
"These compositions rival Max Richter in terms of their sheer unimpeachable loveliness." - Boomkat
"It's lovely from the off and it continues down lovely street until it finishes and leaves you an emotional wreck on the curled up to a fetal ball in your garden. And you'll wonder how you got there too. Yes it's a moving melancholic album filled with misery, beauty. hope and joy all at the same time. I always find the strings and piano combo a moving one. It's by far my favourite sort of classical music as it just sounds so damned beatiful yet miserable at the same time." - Norman Records
Scratching jagged and unfamiliar shapes into the sonic landscape of bands like GYBE and Explosions in the Sky, Syuzhet combine swells of ambient guitar with the atonal lyricism of Stravinsky, Bartok or Debussy at his most dissonant. Featuring members of The Exploits of Elaine, The Amber Sleep, Model Warships, El Camino and Kaneda.
