Released April 19, 2014 (7C10)
Whilst hoping and waiting for vinyl reissues of the And Also The Trees albums, this new EP is a welcome arrival. The four songs on the eponymous EP come from four albums which have never been released on vinyl.
Taken from their 2007 album (Listen For) The Rag And Bone Man, The Legend Of Mucklow is a perfect introduction to the band's music. With a baritone voice, roaring bass, incisive guitar lines and metronomic drums, And Also The Trees have managed to refine their post-punk origins, but retain the essence of their sound.
This record is an opportunity to celebrate Simon Huw Jones' talent for writing lyrics of great suggestive power and his brother's often spectacular (and spectral) music.
The heavyweight vinyl comes in a 350gsm cardboard sleeve with mat UV finish.
