I confess without shame to getting swept up in the Stranger Things hype storm of 2016, and I agree that the program's appeal was inextricably linked to the soundtrack provided by Austin's S U R V I V E . If you're wondering why exactly that matters today, I urge you to imagine that program presented instead with an accompanying soundtrack from Winnipeg's THE WILL TO POWER. Those same vibes, that same propensity for beauty, but this Dark Forest soundtrack is so much darker, so much creepier, and the sonic turns lead you down a series of uncomfortable paths. Highly recommended for late night listening, though as the above linked trailer implies....maybe not best suited for fall camping trips.
