Trees Speak’s new album, ‘PostHuman’, once again blends 1970s
German electronic and ‘motorik’ krautrock instrumentals (think
Harmonia, Can, Cluster, Popul Vuh, Neu!), haunting and powerful
1960s and 1970s soundtracks (think Italian prog rock, Goblin and
John Carpenter horror movies, Morricone and existential John Barry
spy movies), together with a New York no wave electronic synth and
guitar analogue DIY-ness (think Suicide, anything on Soul Jazz’s
‘New York Noise’ series or Eno’s New York No Wave).

This powerful new album is a high concept collage of retro-futurist
science-fiction music, fantastically illustrated by the artist Eric Lee - a

Initial vinyl pressing includes an exclusive bonus 45 single - ‘Machine
