Earning best album of the year is a notable feat, one not to take lightly. But to garner such a cherished spot, and that from a noted collective like La Blogoteque, without having a “proper” release is something else altogether. Well, Forest Fire is ready to give Survival, the recipient of La Blogoteque’s best album of 2008, that proper release via new label Infinite Best. And the first single off the album is “Fortune Teller”.
Listening to “Fortune Teller” one is given a taste of experimental folk-pop mixed with Americana, a combination that, while familiar in so many ways, is also entirely fresh in its eclecticism. It’s a sound and a style that Forest Fire has made their own, their signature, their namesake. And it’s viable to expect nonetheless from Survival in its entirety.
