Recommendation: Earth Size Diamonds - In A Shrinking Forest (2011)

What are you going to do with diamonds this big?
Have you ever had a dream where everything was mixed up? The scenery was a mishmash of various places, there were people from various points in your life, you heard multiple languages being spoken and the whole thing seemed very natural nonetheless?

In a way, listening to In A Shrinking Forest is akin to having said dream, in that you will hear a meeting of different components and styles, all seamlessly fused into a coherent musical statement. Elements of folk, electronic and rock music hand-picked to create 14 short, simple yet very appealing and accessible instrumental pieces. The music is breezy and light, but not devoid of weight and punch. It is a fun album to listen to, with some gorgeous melodies and humorous tunes.

The man behind this record is Mohadev, a multi-instrumentalist who was in Calle Debauche and who is also part of Terraformation (which I'll devote a post to soon) and Ugly numbers.

It is very much worth your time to stream this album on his bandcamp and if you like it, buy it there (digital only).
