Family Trees is a Brooklyn band, which is funny because as Neu Magazine so aptly points out, all they sing about on their Windbreaker album is being in the sun, on the beach. You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might write an album’s worth of songs. I guess it worked out in this case!
The band is giving the whole album away, they’re so generous! So you should definitely go see them play with Reading Rainbow (awesome) and Total Slacker on Jan. 20 at Death by Audio. See some pics on their blog, too.
Here’s my favorite, not least because of the hand claps and shaky kick drum beat, “Do You Ever Wonder?”
