UK producer Psalm Trees
(based in Rotterdam) and French guitarist Guillaume Muschalle
(based in Paris) have never met in real life. They don't speak the same language so they let the music do the talking. While the screens of modern society can make the world feel even more isolated, an evident silver lining is the art of collaboration.
The duo's long distance album, We Must Believe in Spring
, focuses on the collective instead of the individual. With a nod to Bill Evans' jazz album from the late '70s, the instrumental hip hop LP displays a positive message of art, collaboration and community. Jazzy lofi beats contoured by soft vocals and ambient soundscapes. With this, we remain hopeful for spring: a new season, a new chapter, blossoming now. The 12-song LP was preceded by the singles "Desire" and "Who Knows", two tracks that encapsulate the chemistry and collaborative style between these two musicians.
Along with streaming across all platforms, this LP is also available on vinyl. The limited edition yellow version is already sold out, so act fast. Complete with an obi-strip not available elsewhere. Stay tuned for more from We Must Believe in Spring
, including a documentary and an art contest...
