No-Wave meets Krautrock in the desert!

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.” So says their official website. Fair enough. But it can’t be denied that plenty of classic European influences have found their way into their sound as well. Anyone familiar with even the slightest bits of krautrock will hear that sound all over their work, particularly their latest album, PostHuman.

Diaz and Diaz fully immerse themselves in the hypnotic style that formed the sound of classic bands like Can, Popol Vuh, and Neu!, but they tweak that genre just enough to make it sound unique and refreshing.

PostHuman – which is housed in brilliant, retro artwork that seems perfectly suited to the LP gatefold format – also comes with a 7” single that contains “Hidden Machine”, another slice of spacey, futuristic jazz, and “Machine Vision”, a mix of Tangerine Dream-inspired synths and more of those driving, krautrock beats. Trees Speak are a band that wear their influences on their sleeves. But their list of influences is so long that it never feels derivative or repetitious. Those Arizona deserts contain plenty of inspiration; hopefully, there’s much more of it to come. – Pop Matters
