Editorial Reviews

Trans- Records is re-issuing the first two albums by The Lonely Forest. Nuclear Winter (2007) & We Sing the Body Electric! (2009) have been re-mastered and receive national distribution for the first time. After hearing these two albums, Chris Walla, guitarist and producer for Grammy-nominated rock band Death Cab for Cutie, made TLF his first signing when he launched Trans-. TLF's Arrows was released in March, 2011 and has sold over ten thousand copies to date. The band will release a brand new album in Summer 2013.

I was at the CD release party for Nuclear Winter, at the Vera Project in 2007, and I remember the energy in the room. The band marched through the new album like they were triumphantly returning from war. Yet, it was not so much a victory in war as a completion of a conversation. In fact, the band had just successfully written an epic story--a sci-fi adventure with well-developed characters and gripping conflict. The album hymns to old economists and philosophers while tracing the life of future refugees, and it does so with the dynamic of a mature composer; sometimes shrieking, often soft. The melodies are simple but have enormous capacity, naturally carrying the weight of the narrative. In instrumentation, a trio, each piece is stretched to near breaking limits, but each is also comfortable in silence. The screams are anything but contrived.

Yes, The Lonely Forest has gone in other directions in the years following Nuclear Winter, and for reasons that I understand. Their new sound is more marketable; their lyrics are less transparent; their overall image may be slightly cooler. But I hesitate with the word "cooler," because the past from which they came represents a wonderful ingenuity born from honest concern and the pain of adolescence. Find this album, and add it honorably to The Lonely Forest discography.

I caught up with The Lonely Forest's back catalog after seeing them on tour for Arrows with Death Cab. Their live show impressed me, but having heard Nuclear Winter I have even more appreciation for this band. There's so much to discover on this album: the terrific piano melodies, the raw emotions found in the vocals, and the powerful blasted-out sound of the drumming. I wish this album were easier to find, but I can only seem to listen to it digitally on Grooveshark. I hope The Lonely Forest reissues this album and more people can hear it.

Nuclear Winter is a rock opera containing enchanting piano melodies, amazing guitar riffs, and outstanding drumming...about the end of the world. These three young men - John (guitar/piano/vocals), Eric (bass) and Bradyn (drums) - sound like season veterans of the music world, but when this album was released (if I'm not mistaken), two of the three of them weren't even old enough to drink! The lyrics are politically and emotionally driven, but I have to admit what first drew me to them was the sound. Piano is something that you are hearing appear more and more in rock albums, but piano that is well done, intelligently written, and effortlessly flows in a way that, halfway though a song you realize that this IS a rock band, and that IS a piano, is something very rare. The same with the lyrics. Intelligently written, moving lyrics are few and far between in today's musical world, and these boys do a fantastic job of sounding musically inclined and intelligent while not sounding pompous or like they are trying to hard.
Words cannot describe how much this band continues to amaze me. If you like this album, or are in the least intrigued by it, I urge you to find someplace to pick up the other 3 (Yossarian [John van Deusen solo album], John van Deusen and the Lonely Forest, and Regicide), and I STRONGLY urge you to pick up their next album, We Sing the Body Electric! in February.
Having met these guys personally, I believe that they will do great, amazing things, in the music world and elsewhere. Support local music (no matter where you are from!)!!!
