Album Review
Kyle Vandenberg
Reviewed 2011-09-29 
Near the Parenthesis: Music for the Forest Concourse: Beautiful soft electronica. Somewhat similar to The Album Leaf, but all instrumental. Most tracks characterized by synth backgrounds with piano melody. Lush soundscapes all. FCC clean (all instrumental). Try 1, 2, 4, 6, 8.
1) Gorgeous piano with a rich synth background and ever-so-slight tapped percussion. Echo-y and deep.
2) High-pitched flittering synths in the background, contemplative piano in the foreground.
3) Hints of spoken word sampling in the background, with chime-like synths creating a rich soundscape.
4) Deep piano, with light synths flitting around the edges. Very full sound.
5) Space soundscape, with light beat and synths.
6) Baby piano with a range of synths.
7) Space synths with suppressed piano and small verbal samples.
8) Echo-y drumkit, wandering synths, and piano melody.
9) Some strange sounds, feedback-y synths, and a light beat.
10) Background voice samples, slowly building synths.
11) A minute-long piano and high-pitched noise track.
12) Lyrical piano with distorted synths. Fade out into noise.
