Kyle Forester (Woods, Purple Mountains) preps new LP – listen to “Strange Vision”


Kyle Forester has played keyboards in a lot of groups over the last 15 years, including Woods, Crystal Stilts, The Ladybug Transistor and was part of David Berman’s Purple Mountains band. He also makes his own jangly guitar pop that’s not too far from what Real Estate do, and will release his second solo album, Hearts in Gardens, this Friday. We’ve got the premiere of the gentle, breezy “Strange Vision” which Kyle says is “a meditation on how weird it is to find yourself wherever it is that you are.” He adds, “With the drum machine, I was originally hoping I could write a song that sounded like “Goodbye Girl” by Squeeze. When I played it for Matt Boynton, he was like, ‘This song doesn’t sound anything like that song.’ Oh well.” Watch the video for that — animated by Kyle’s old Crystal Stilts bandmate Andy Adler — and listen to two other songs off the album, below.

You can pre-order Hearts in Gardens and Kyle will celebrate its release at Brooklyn’s The Sultan Room on March 14. That show is with Ezrat (ex-EZTV), Nico LaOnda, and DJ Burger Klein.
