When the band Trees Speak, coming out of nowhere, released an exclusive one-off 100-pressing white label 45, described as Can/Neu! meets Liquid Liquid, it sold out so quickly (in less than 30 min) that Soul Jazz Records decided to release their album almost immediately. Soul Jazz Records rarely releases new music but found Trees Speak's Ohms so stunning and to have so many elements of music that they admired that they felt compelled to release it on vinyl.
Trees Speak are from Tucson, Arizona and create music that sounds like German krautrock meets no wave/post-punk and psych rock - music for fans of Cluster, Tangerine Dream, Can, Neu!, Silver Apples and early Kraftwerk. Ohms sounds at times like a tripped out and moody Johnny Carpenter/Goblin/Morricone soundtrack that seamlessly segues into propulsive, ‘motorik' krautrock instrumentals loaded with fuzzy, hypnotic mellotron, synths and analogue effects, as well as elements of Art Ensemble free jazz, and at times reaching a kind of post-rave psychedelia.
The album includes an exclusive bonus 45 single (the white label of which sold out so fast) that will only be available with the first order of this amazing and ground-breaking new album.
