'survival' is the debut album from brooklyn quartet forest fire. it's a compelling, ragged and romantic album that recalls the velvet underground, morphine, 4 track demos of john lennon and come. their tracks are littered with heartfelt vocals, vibrant bursts of guitar and mo tucker esque drumming. 'survival' is a moment-to-moment kind of recording. songs of total grit part to reveal blue sky, before dissolving once again into disorder. recorded over an eight month period in both brooklyn and portland, many of survival's tracks were recorded live in less than five takes, then maniacally overdubbed by a variety of players. sometimes there was only one microphone for the entire band. sometimes they pulled out a few more. the result is an album which was rated as le blogotheque's album of the year, over the likes of fleet foxes and bon iver, before it had even been officially released. cd only on broken sound.
