A limited edition book of Daniel’s drawings made during the creation of Forget was released on the same day.
you can stream the whole album on the Oupa BandCamp page.
This is a collection of naive sounding ballads, simply and sparsely crafted, beautiful acoustic tunes. I used to love straight in your face dry vocals, but on this instance, it would have made this record maybe too intimate and the reverb use is perfect. This is my favorite Blumberg recording so far and I really dig the sketches as well. So we urge you to go and stream and purchase this album Here. Watch the clip for ‘Windows’
