    Trees SpeakShadow FormsSoul Jazz Records

    Super-limited new 1000 copies special ox-blood red vinyl edition!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It's a big one ... 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 & 1970s soundtracks (think Italian prog-rock Goblin and John Carpenter horror movies, Morricone and existential John Barry spy movies), together with a New Nork no wave electronic synth and guitar analogue DIY-ness (think Suicide, anything on Soul Jazz’s New York Noise series or Eno's New York No Wave)!

    Trees Speak’ segue together all these elements into ‘Shadow Forms,’ which follows on from their critically-acclaimed debut LP ‘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.

      SymaripThese Boots Are Made For Walking / That's NiceHarlem Shuffle

      Issued on 7" vinyl for the first time, this is a licensed release of the song extracted from the Skinhead Moonstomp LP on Trojan Records in 1970, 50 years ago. This is a cracking Boss Reggae cover of Nancy Sinatra's mega hit and a huge early Reggae anthem. Incredibly this very much in demand song has never been released on 7" vinyl up to now!

      On the flip That is Nice has only been available on the Skinhead Moonstomp Special Edition CD. This is a Symarip original and it is the complete opposite of These Boots Are Made For Walking. Here the gritty voice of Roy Ellis serves admirably the sad, pensive melody and simple lyrics of this melancholic love ballad. Simply beautiful. A very rare gem and a perfect finish to this outstanding double sider single.
