With The Forest Of Oversensitivity, Guillermo Scott Herren delivers a suite of material that gives his latest album, Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian, another dimension. Ultra-mellow and full of jagged beats, this EP has the calm, but dangerous flow of an ice-filled ocean that nudges the darker side of the LP.
Three new “Choir” tracks and two new mixes are on The Forest Of Oversensitivity, which features eerily droning vocals, glitchy electronic stardust, and alien rhythms all in unison. It’s as if each track strides slowly down a futuristic sidewalk as robotic noises of all types whizz around it. “Overkill Choir” is sexy, “Relief Choir” is zoned out, “Preparation’s Kids Choir” is playful, and “Always Alone Choir” is energetic. They’re a crowd that walks together, but in strangely different ways.
Herren pushes his prolific career further with The Forest Of Oversensitivity. It’s another punctuation mark on the sentence that is Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian, and an altogether intriguing effort.
