Forest Sun -- his real name -- is a Bay Area songwriter who inhabits a musical world populated Alchemy - Forest Sun - Plenty the spirits of ghosts and peers and somehow in his songs manages to keep all those identities separate from his.
Indeed, in these ten small gems, Sun offers the Muse the gift of his voice to write and sing though. The set opens with "Alchemy," a prayer so pure in its humility and so fierce in its lurid delivery it could only have been born from the bosom of rock. Sun's electric and acoustic guitars meet Daniel Schacht's elliptical bassline in a dance of yearning.
Another standout The One Thing - Shakira - Shakira. "Red Umbrella," which holds the Celtic soul-brother sung poetics of Van Morrison to the flame of slippery blues and Alchemy - Forest Sun - Plenty Caribbean shuffle. It's an easy, deep soul love song or lust song that for once puts the low-belly beat inside the body of the tune's lyric concerns.
In fact, if it wasn't for Sun's sensual vocal delivery and subtle groove sensibility that allows Matt Henry Cunitz's B3 and Alex Budman's saxophones to waft their way through the middle of the cut, heating up the mix all around the singer, it would just be another folk love song instead of a languid, dripping seduction number.
