New Tunes from Forest Fire

Man, it’s been a really good day for quirky pop numbers all over the Internets.  This sprawling little number from New York’s Forest Fire is just another one of those.  The band have recently signed to Fat Cat, who will be releasing their newest album, Staring at the X, on October 18th.  If you listen closely, I swear you’ll hear the voice of Devandra Banhart, though the music sounds nothing at all like that.  Light orchestrated touches come in and out, and carefully echoed guitar chords clang in the background.  Whatever their formula is for songwriting, I’m absolutely loving it today.
