When it comes to discovering new music, I pretty much live under a rock. Most of what I listen to is either the older stuff that's filled up my library, or whatever comes on the radio. This album, though, was a recommendation from a friend...and a remarkably good one at that.
Based out of the Seattle/Tacoma area, Colonies is an indie band whose songs manage to take a worn out genre troupe and turn it into a cohesive if not entirely fresh sound.
Unlike most new offerings, Forest Floor clocks in at a short 36 minutes front to back. It uses every minute, though, and renders one of the few albums that you can listen to without skipping tracks.
