The new acoustic album 'When the rains come' can now be orderd from the official website and will be avialable in your trusted record shop on June 8th.
|Recorded in a single four day session in a barn in rural Herefordshire 'And also the trees' succeeded in capturing a feeling of spontaneous vitality, from the 'live' situation and a sense of space and detail from the ancient and sparse environment. The 14 songs selected from throughout their song writing history are performed and carefully arranged for vocal, acoustic guitar and double bass with the occasional accompaniment of dulcimer, accordion and melodica.
To those familiar with the universe of 'And also the trees' these captivating recordings will provide an exciting redefinition of their rich melodies and unique musical landscapes and atmospheres. To the uninitiated or those who thought they knew who this band were it will be a surprise.
Their fierce sense of independence and non conformist attitude have always made them hard to accurately categorize. 'When the rains come" is a fantastic opportunity to discover, or rediscover 'And also the trees'.
