Okay, now I’m sold on Rejoicer… (video)


Man I feel like I really missed the boat on this one…

While originally I really liked the first track I heard from Rejoicer (which you can check out my feelings on here), after listening to it, I didn’t think much of it and went on my merry way. But now after having heard this track “Yesterday’s Forest Magic”, I really wish I had jumped on the Rejoicer train sooner because this track is positively fantastic!

Simply put: this track hits all the right notes for me. It’s a bit jazzy; largely due to its gorgeous horn lead and subtle keyboard and synth textures. It’s a bit atmospheric, it’s a bit funky, thanks to its employment of a lot of hand percussion to fill out the mix of the song. It’s a bit float-y and relaxing, but not overtly so to make it boring or wallpaper-y. It just manages to strike the right mix of all the sounds I like and the more I listen to this track, the more I find myself liking it. Now if only I could get my hands on this album…

Rejoicer’s album Energy Dreams is out now on Stones Throw.
