      And Also The Trees
      "Hunter Not The Hunted"

      Label: Normal Records (2012)
      Demanding full attention from the listener, Hunter not the Hunted promises to take you to a timeless yet oddly familiar place, just beyond memory. Lyrically, Simon Huw Jones has never been better. His words hint of illicit and unsettling journeys mirrored by solitary walks along flooded landscapes drenched in light - his voice conveying emotions that permeate and resonate with each telling; sometimes soaring, sometimes deadpan. Emer Brizzolara on dulcimer provides shimmering accompaniment, with drums, double bass and percussion used to great effect to illustrate the isolation.

      And Also The Trees present ‘Hunter not the Hunted’ as an entire ‘novel’ of an album. The album’s subtle shadowed beauty and intense quality are a result of recent intimate live shows in bizarre spaces, where the proximity of the audience enveloping the band, created a unique and magical feel reflected in this work. Hunter not the Hunted breathes and pulsates with its own pace. Essentially original, complex yet sparse, this is an album greedy for a contemplative audience whose likes could bring to mind the works of Mark Hollis, Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, Marc Ribot or Patrick Watson.
