Hello friend. This is Kael Smith of Mute Forest. It's been 4 years since my debut album Deforestation came out and the time has come to take a bold, sonic leap forward with a brand new album. I want album #2 to have a dazzling analog-character and a deep intimate feel. To achieve this, I'd like to team up with super-talented engineer Mike Bridavsky (Magnolia Electric CO, Tortoise, Rivulets) at Russian Recording in Bloomington, IN. Mike is the perfect fit to help me realize the full potential of these next 10 or so songs. Recording with such a renowned producer in their studio takes a considerable amount of money. With your support I can cover studio time, lodging and transportation and in exchange I'll reward you with the first copies of the new album, unreleased material, t-shirts, cover songs and more. This will be an intrepid step but I think it will make for a killer record. Let's do it together!
New music! This is the first taste of new Mute Forest material. The Riven Sun (demo) will be given exclusively to Kickstarter backers and not released anywhere else. This home recorded version will live on it's own and will be re-recorded for the upcoming full length record.
This is a new 4 song EP called Scarcities. This Kickstarter exclusive EP features 2 new Mute Forest songs and 2 unreleased Mombi (my other project) songs from The Wounded Beat sessions. It is included in the Mute Forest & Mombi digital bundle tier with a $25 pledge.
1. Mute Forest - Dark Waterbird 2. Mombi - False Ribs 3. Mute Forest - Hold On 4. Mombi - More Coal (chilly version)
For those of you discovering Mute Forest for the first time, here's a couple personal favorites of mine. The first is a song called Eat the Skin from my Infinity Pools EP. Released April 7th, 2015 via Lost Tribe Sound.
Pray for Hail is a single I released in 2018 and features static-filled guitar, mutating, dusty atmospherics and filtered harmony vocals.
