And Also the Trees : When the Rain Comes - CD And Also the Trees : When the Rain Comes - CD  Ref: 18974 By recording this acoustic album 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. The oldest song 'A room lives in Lucy', their indie chart hit from 1985 is fascinatingly reinterpreted and despite it's understated and somewhat surreal menace, sits with surprising ease beside the title track 'When the rains come' a song which was completed just in time for the recording session.

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. Despite coming from a background where John Peel, (who described them as "too English for the English") was king and their constant spiritual benefactor Robert Smith was just emerging from the mists of the post punk scene, 'and also the trees' have continued to evolve and without losing track of their creative soul they continue to confound and enchant. Their fierce sense of independence and non conformist attitude have always made them hard to accurately categorize but the discerning listener might hear echoes of Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, Arthur Lee or Scott Walker from the past and see parallels with Marissa Nadler, Matt Elliot, The Young Gods or David Eugene Edwards. 'When the rains come" is a fantastic opportunity to discover, or rediscover 'And also the trees', it is a strangely moving album that will reinforce their position in

the alternative scene.
