Written and recorded between 2012-2015, ‘Forest Noise’ sat in a
state of limbo of sorts while we focused on solo projects, beat tapes,
band endeavors, and life. Featuring instrumentation from Eric Brown
(drum kit) and Troy Padilla (guitar) on select songs, ‘Forest
Noise’ explores left field hip-hop/rap song writing & production
from various angles. With that being said, the ground temperature is
now where it needs to be for this project to breach the earth.

Available on limited edition clear cassette tape through bandcamp and
most digital outlets as well.

Bandcamp bonus tracks include “Chrome Fangs”, featuring our friend
and Indianapolis heavyweight rhymer AceOne AND cassette rips of the
album in a side A / side B format.



I'm just trying to make my art and do what's smart. Cake donuts are clutch.
