Forced Random - It's Not Your Fault, I Don't Blame You

Forced Random is the music of singer/songwriter Oliver Girdler, and it's bedroom pop in a sort of prog style - languid, slow-building guitar music that, with a combination of acoustic and electric guitars and various found sounds, strums its way to a crescendo. Check out "Once Again", a beautiful track reminiscent of American Analog Set:

Here's "No Words" - guitars are turned up just a bit, and there's a little bit of feedback right in the middle. Nice atmosphere:

The 5-track EP is out now, and available via the Bandcamp link below. It's pleasant and very well put-together, it rewards repeated listening - what more could you ask for?
