about the record

The Forest Effect's 2nd release, originally intended to be a "live in the studio" type of recording, instead sprawled out into a two-year project. But the additional reworking of arrangements, sounds and melodies allowed each song to blossom from a rehearsal space work-song into a true life-form of its own. Lyrical themes of splintered connections and personal perseverance leave melodies left in ruin, lacing the band's saturated tones and eventually succumbing to the vast expanse of The Roses of Shepard-Risset. Continuing their mix process with Paul Q Kolderie, the record features several backing vocalists and drummers Dan Gullotti and Mike Piehl.

about the record

The Forest Effect's first release went through a long period of "digital fermentation" while the half-finished tunes sat neglected on a hard drive for years. Originally begun with Boston legend Paul Kolderie recording drums/bass at Camp Street Studios, Page and Kuris spent many a cold hour adding additional tracks at a CRS rehearsal space, but then hit the pause button. Something didn't smell right in there. Anyways. As Kuris/Page pivoted away from rehearsals with a rhythm section to focus more on recording, they revisited the Camp Street Sessions, liked what they heard, and decided it was time to finish. With Kolderie providing his mixing magic, the songs were finally printed and framed like photos on the shelf.

Gigs are fun. Check our calendar here.

We're planning to share some live recordings here, but we've been busy with the follow-up to "Melody Left in Ruin". (Think LZIII-acoustic shadings.) In the meantime see the Videos page for live acoustic bits.
