If These Trees Could Talk - Above The Earth, Below The Sky LP

If These Trees Could Talk are a post-rock outfit from Ohio who reader and dulli-lover Justin was so kind to point out to me. They're about to release their sophomore album on Mylene Sheath, and as usual it looks like the people over there did a wonderful job in giving it the vinyl treatment. The music you say? Well, they're an instrumental post-rock band and about now every small town in the Northern Hemisphere has one of those, so check out their myspace if you will. To me, it's clear that these guys are no Mogwai or Explosions In The Sky yet, but anyone familiar with the genre will still be quite entertained by this album. In stead of trying to copy the aformentioned others, ITTCT try to incorporate some other influences, such as the obvious Tool reference into their sound, and they're quite good at it. If you like your post-rock to slowly sweep you off your feet, you've come to the right place.

Anyway, the "Above The Earth, Below The Sky" LP comes in a thick jacket with matte lamination and spot gloss and printed inner sleeves and is limited to 400 copies in total, of which 100 on transpartent blue and 300 on green vinyl. Get yours from Mylene Sheath
