Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky
Conjuring a heavily articulated blend of EDM sensibilities, electronic textures and versatile production techniques is what makes Forest Robots a multifaceted standout of its kind. A crafty musical entity masterminded through the brilliant mind of producer/songwriter Fran Dominguez, Forest Robots comes out swinging once again with the third album “Times When I Know You’ll Watch The Sky”.
This instrumental 11-track juggernaut is a rollercoaster ride into the depths of unwavering atmosphere and ambient rhythms that exercise your mind, body and soul without any cookie cutter tactics. The authenticity of each song ties into the next and utilizes very effective synth parts to bring perfected melodies to the forefront. While maintaining very subtle and atmospheric themes that resonate throughout the album’s entirety, Forest Robots still manages to explore musical angles in each track that touch on balances of equal parts originality and familiarity; giving every listener a fresh take on EDM/electronic flavors while also leading the album’s signature sound to a place of identifiability.
This album is also very accessible and can be appreciated by just about any EDM or electronic music fan. It doesn’t go into any shock value or unnecessary theatrics; it’s a well crafted album that pays close attention to detail and expresses Dominguez’s artistic merit in a way that you can understand. Its futuristic sound also has a cinematic feel that really gets you to delve deep into the visuals that these songs draw out in your mind, kinda like a musical painting or composed soundscapes that can be articulated right before your eyes. But one thing’s for sure – this record will soothe you from top to bottom, and each song will get you to relax your mind in a way that very few artists can achieve. “Times…” is not only a recommended record, it’s a triumphant one. It’s currently available on Apple Music, Spotify and other digital music streaming platforms.
Forest Robots also has an upcoming album titled “After Geography” available for pre-order now on Bandcamp and will officially release on August 28th. This is a must-listen for 2020.
