We are so very pleased to announce our very first release of 2020: the amazing new album from Tall Tall Trees!
Tall Tall Trees is songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and longtime Kishi Bashi collaborator / band member, Mike Savino.
Melding the influences of Pink Floyd and Cat Stevens with inspiration from banjo pioneers Earl Scruggs and Bela Fleck, 'A Wave of Golden Things' is Savino's fourth studio album and his most realized work to date. Abandoning the heavily-layered textures of 2017’s 'Freedays' for a more organic, stripped-down approach, 'A Wave of Golden Things' leaves Savino's distinct voice and song craft as the centerpiece of the album. Opting for an immersive experience, Savino self-recorded and self-produced this album - set up residence and a mobile recording rig on a hemp farm in the Appalachian mountains. Recorded in just under three weeks, with much of it arranged on the spot, the album maintains a sense of immediacy, celebrating raw performance over perfection.
Reflective of the dark and challenging times of today, Savino’s message is ultimately one of hope and finding peace of mind in the chatter of the modern world. The last chorus reaches towards a transcendent beauty in the darkness, and makes a promise: “a wave of golden things, it waits for you.”
The VIP Edition is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies on 'Sunrise' orange & gold vinyl with goldenrod yellow splatter.
Also available on Gold Vinyl, CD, and Digital
