the debut album from australia's husky on sub pop. with its warm, acoustic timbres and carefully crafted songs, 'forever so' is the sound of a band that from its inception cared more about making one sublime album than acquiring a million followers on twitter. though the four band members have disparate tastes, their shared passion for classic sounds, rich harmonies, and artful songwriting points back to the artists they grew up on: crosby stills and nash, bob dylan, the doors, neil young, leonard cohen and the beach boys. the long-playing album holds up start-to-finish, from catchy opener 'tidal wave,' with its hum-along harmonies and surprise psychedelic midsection, to the understated, intertwined brass parts that conclude 'farewell (in 3 parts).' in the syncopated rhythms of 'hundred dollar suit' or the reverberating piano strings and laid back bass that underpin 'the woods,' you can sense fingers moving over instruments and lungs giving breath to voices, the unfolding of ephemeral ideas into fresh yet fully realized songs taking forth before your very ears.
