Catalogue No.: SJRLP457
Release Date: 30th October 2020
Genre: Psych/Garage Rock
Absolutely stunning second album from Trees Speak, new on Soul Jazz Records.
Trees Speak’s new album ‘Shadow Forms’ is a blend of 1970s German electronic and ‘motorik’ Krautrock instrumentals (think Harmonia, Can, Cluster, Popul Vuh,
Neu!), haunting and powerful 1960s and 1970s soundtracks (think Italian prog rock Goblin and John Carpenter horror movies, Morricone and existential John Barry spy movies), together with a New York no wave electronic synth and guitar analogue DIY-ness (think Suicide, anything on Soul Jazz’s ‘New York Noise’ series or Eno’s ‘No New York’).
Trees Speak segue together all these elements into ‘Shadow Forms’, which follows on from their criticallyacclaimed debut album ‘Ohms,’ released on Soul Jazz Records less than six months ago.
Trees Speak are Daniel Martin Diaz and Damian Diaz from Tucson, Arizona and their music often draws on the cosmic night-time magic of Arizona’s natural desert landscapes. ‘Trees Speak’ relates to the idea of future technologies storing information and data in trees and plants - using them as hard drives - and the idea that Trees communicate collectively.
The LP format includes an exclusive bonus 45 single ‘Outtake’ and ‘Transmitter’ that will only be available with the first order of this amazing and ground-breaking new album.
