The Forest Diaries, by Dag Rosenqvist

a1551270776_10

Another slice of Eilean greatness, this time Dag Rosenqvist presents us with some hyper-relaxed modern classical goodness. Floating around between drones and fog, The Forest Diaries remains emotional and focused over long 10 tracks. Lots of work here featuring piano as well as other acoustic instrumentation. The entire release is saturated in a subtle, lonely feeling, not in a bad way, but more of a “lonely for a day” sorta way. Whether it makes you relax or reminisce, this is one highly recommended body of work.
