Be Forest’s Cold is finally back on catalog in a Deluxe vinyl 12″ plus Flexi Disc

We are very happy to announce that Be Forest’s debut LP Cold is finally being repressed in a new deluxe vinyl reissue with modified graphics and added audio track(s). After the release in 2011 the records disappeared pretty quickly and we have since then received a great number of requests for a vinyl reissue, so we are extremely pleased to be working on this deluxe limited edition, pressed on doublemint opaque vinyl and packaged in a thick tip-on style jacket. The artwork is an elaboration of the original cover, and includes an insert with lyrics. The tracklist is enriched by the closing I.O., but the added gem is a song pressed on a flexi disc inserted in the jacket. The vinyls are available for pre-order now and will ship at the beginning of October 2017. Get your copy before it sells out again!

In the meantime the band is also busy working on new material and will take the stage in the fall to celebrate the reissue of Cold while testing some new tunes with some special shows. Here the details:

 

OUT NOW! Brothers in Law – Raise

Brothers in Law - Raise - cover WEB

 “When you realize that time is slipping away fast, and you have no emergency brake you can pull…then you understand that everything you do with passion has its place and is part of a path”. This is the way Brothers in Law describes the project they’ve been working on for the two years since their debut Hard Times for Dreamers—a phenomenal debut that brought them into the international indie scene, including the participation at SXSW in Austin, TX. Raise is a new chapter for the four-piece from Pesaro, Italy, and it’s not a coincidence that the title implies a “lift”, something that goes up and into the light. Eight new songs that “feel the need to go beyond that attitude of bleak despair that had inspired much of our first album. We wanted to make room for a more aware approach and attitude, as we’ve learned to accept that we have grown. We, in a way, began to understand that life is difficult, but we are the ones who can try to improve it”. This approach penetrated into the writing and music of “Raise”, resulting in a fuller sound rich with nuances and rounder arrangements, thanks as well to the addition of the bass. The ballads characterize the tracklist and the structure of the songs is more profound and mature. “Try to imagine an album as if it were a hotel where different souls were staying. All of them have something to say: some whisper, some scream notes they can hardly control. On the other hand, each song has its own life and something to tell…and we had to listen because each emerged from an urge, a necessary impulse from inside of us.” Raise, in summary, is all of this: an album that shows you upfront its’ sincere face. Raise is available on 12″ vinyl, CD and digital: you can order it from our store or catch the band on tour and get your copy straight from them!

 «Quando senti che tutto questo tempo sta scivolando velocemente, e non hai freni da poter tirare, allora capisci che tutto ciò che fai con amore ha la sua importanza, ed è parte di un percorso». I Brothers In Law cominciano a raccontare così gli oltre due anni passati da Hard Times For Dreamers, il fenomenale album di debutto che li portò all’attenzione della scena indipendente non solo nazionale, grazie a un lungo tour in Europa e negli Stati Uniti, culminato con la partecipazione al SXSW festival di Austin, Texas. Raise è un capitolo nuovo per il trio pesarese. Non a caso, il titolo allude al concetto di “risollevare”, qualcosa che sale verso la luce. L’album racchiude otto nuove canzoni che «sentono il bisogno di andare oltre quell’atteggiamento di desolato sconforto che aveva ispirato buona parte del nostro primo album. Vogliamo lasciare spazio a un’attitudine più consapevole, abbiamo imparato ad accettare che siamo cresciuti. In fondo, è come se volessimo capire che la vita è difficile, ma soltanto noi possiamo provare a renderla migliore». Tutto questo, in qualche modo, è filtrato nella scrittura e nei suoni di Raise. Una musica più ricca, carica di sfumature grazie all’aggiunta stabile del basso in formazione, e di arrangiamenti più rotondi. In scaletta prevalgono le ballate, e la struttura delle canzoni si è fatta più profonda, matura. «Puoi immaginare un disco come un hotel dove “alloggiano” diverse anime. Tutte hanno qualcosa da dire, alcune sussurrano, altre urlano su tappeti di note e voci che puoi difficilmente controllare. Allo stesso modo ogni canzone ha una sua vita, qualcosa che deve raccontare, e devi accettarla perché sai fin dentro le ossa che è figlia della necessità». Raise vuole essere questo, un disco di cui riconosci subito la faccia sincera. Raise è disponibile in vinile, CD e digitale attraverso il nostro store, oppure direttamente ai concerti dalle loro stesse mani!

Be Forest – “Hideway” with string quartet

In Febraury 2015 Be Forest went on stage to perform their 2014’s success Earthbeat together with a string quartet.  That special collaboration took the name of “Earthstrings“.

The whole concert was recorded and filmed on February 18th at Magnolia, in Milan – Italy, and the extract above is the exquisite rendition of “Hideway”.

“Earthstrings” went on stage again a few months later in Pesaro, on the beautiful scenery of Teatro Rossini and now, on Thursday July 16th, Be Forest will join once more the string quartet for what is going to be another unforgettable event in the cloister of Vicolo Bolognetti in Bologna, Italy.

We’ll be there, and so should you!

Jack Eden – self titled debut EP – OUT NOW!

Jack Eden is the nocturnal and solitary soul of Giacomo Stolzini, vocalist and guitar player from Brothers in Law. Inside this self-titled EP, however, we don’t find the saturated guitars that we know and love, but instead a black and white of synthesizers and drum machines finished with a breath of cold reverberations. It’s sorrowful and melancholic pop that reminds one of a Suicide’s show, some afternoon in January, standing in front of the ocean, many years ago.. For his solo project, born in 2013 while tinkering with an old Casio, Jack has decided to reduce the instrumentation to a minimum, working all by subtraction and with very little effects. The result is this concrete debut EP, in which the eternal struggle between the gloom of certain atmospheres and the sweetness of the melodies is a never ending ping-pong match. Jack Eden is out now digitally from our bandcamp pages. Download it!

Jack Eden è l’anima notturna e solitaria di Giacomo Stolzini, già voce del trio pesarese Brothers In Law. Dentro Jack Eden, però, non ci sono le chitarre sature che conosciamo e amiamo, ma un bianco e nero di synth e drum machine, e un soffio freddo di riverberi che avvolgono ogni cosa. Pop dolente e malinconico come un concerto dei Suicide davanti al Mare Adriatico un pomeriggio di gennaio, tanti anni fa. Per il suo progetto solista, nato nel 2013 giocando con una vecchia
Casio, Jack ha deciso di ridurre la strumentazione al minimo, lavorando tutto per sottrazione e con pochissimi effetti. Il risultato è questo deciso EP di debutto, dentro il quale l’eterna lotta tra la cupezza di certe atmosfere e la dolcezza delle melodie è una partita a ping pong che non finisce mai. Jack Eden è scaricabile da ora sulla nostra pagina store. Scaricalo!
