Royal Forest are big on field recordings. The Austin foursome have made songs in a single-prop airplane above the Texas hill country, inside a World War II submarine in Galveston, and in the midst of a lightning storm among the Monahans sand dunes, and their latest track, “Everyone Who Knows You,” definitely sounds like it was crafted in the thick of something. A grinding groove gives the psych-pop tune its spine as bursts of warped, flailing melodies and stifled vocals conjure a garbled transmission from a forgotten era. Hear it below.
