AND ALSO THE TREES

'And Also The Trees' formed in 1980 in rural Worcestershire, England, an environment that has provided a constant source of inspiration. They are known for their captivating live performances, their unique style of mandolin like electric guitar, poetic lyrics, dark jazz rhythms and their carefully preserved independence. In their early years they caught the attention of Robert Smith who invited them to tour with The Cure on several occasions and he, along with Lol Tolhurst oversaw and produced their early ‘post-punk’ recordings. Since then they have been in continuous existence releasing thirteen studio albums, touring frequently in most European countries and visiting America and Japan where they have a cult following. They have recently re-issued what is perhaps their best known 1986 LP ‘Virus Meadow’ and will release a new album in September 2022.

THE ULTIMATE DREAMERS

The Ultimate Dreamers sortent d'un très long sommeil en 2021. Leurs sonorités froides et organiques s’ajustent en des mélodies mélancoliques, souvent accrocheuses et parfois dissonantes, servant de trame musicale à des thèmes dominés par le rêve, la détresse amoureuse et la critique sociale. C'est à la fin 2020 que des enregistrements réalisés de façon artisanale entre 1987 et 1990, en pleine adolescence, remontent à la surface et sont portés aux oreilles de Dimitri, patron du label Wool-E Discs. Il propose immédiatement d’en faire un album. Après sélection et mastering, 11 titres sont assemblés pour former "Live Happily While Waiting For Death" qui sort le 26 septembre 2021. La magie est de retour. The Ultimate Dreamers reprennent vie avec un nouveau line-up et un répertoire actualisé. Tout en enchaînant les concerts, le quatuor prépare un nouvel EP qui sera précédé par un single le 1er octobre 2022.
