Carlos Forster – “Slouching Towards Reality” Video Premiere

From Prefixmag:

It’s funny how things work out sometimes for artists, particularly when they attempt to stop creating. For San Francisco’s Carlos Forster, that moment came a few years ago. The former For Stars frontman decided to quit writing music and focused on obtaining a degree in psychoanalysis. And even though his intensive courses kept him busy, he couldn’t shake his art.

The bug gave him another bite during a trip to the Northwest to visit a friend. That friend happened to be the recently prolific M. Ward, whose output must have inspired Forster to start playing again. They would quickly begin working on what would end up being Forster’s recently released full-length album, Family Trees, which features production and back-up vocals from Ward.
