The Blue Tree – Fell
Released by Glass records.
The Blue Tree is a collaborative project between Andrew Paine & Matthew Shaw. Their first three albums have been described as experimental excursions into far off plains of weirded out sunny summer psyche made with apps, FX pedals, sticky tape and glue.
‘Fell’ is a different beast; recorded in Glasgow and Christchurch under lockdown conditions. Drawing from numerology, oblique strategies, dystopian sci-fi, chance operations and their inherent Taurean groove, Blue Tree have channelled number stations, fragmented radio signals, cut up poetry, technically obsolete electronics, howling guitars, dark ambient synths and industrial beats to produce a weighty progressive album channeling hope through isolation and the chaos of the changing world.
