Let's be honest...

"...who listens to British folk music to hear killer basslines and drumming? I never did, until hearing this album by Trees. All the comparisons to Fairport Convention are spot on, but at the same time Trees have a very unique approach to the music. While Fairport Convention remind me of traveling bards and the British isles, Trees remind me of a medieval-folk jam session. Some of the tracks carry on a bit improvisationally, but they keep a very nice groove.

"While The Iron Is Hot" is one of my favorites off the album. The opening is deceptive, a pleasant little folk song - then out of holy nowhere you are assaulted with pounding drums that make you question if Keith Moon joined them for the track, and it turns into a cracking good rock song. The basslines are all perfect, and even the guitar work (especialy the jam on "Streets of Derry") is mind-melting.

If you want folk that combines the feathery vocals of female folk with the ballsy instrumention of a band like The Who, you need to get this album.
