Product Description

Product Description

With their quintessential vintage West Coast sound, it's fitting that Treetop Flyers laid down their outstanding country soul debut in the canyons of Southern California. Though based in London, the British five-piece swapped urban England for the picturesque beaches and rolling hills of Malibu in order to record the classic sounding The Mountain Moves . 'Our music makes sense there,' explains Sam. Yet 'The Mountain Moves' hits home far beyond the reaches of Los Angeles. A record of hope, honesty and huge choruses, its universally reaching songs are strewn with sunshine-infused four-part harmonies, propelled by an irrefutable open-highway groove. Paying their dues to everyone from The Band and Neil Young by way of Little Feat and Fleetwood Mac, there are also gracious nods towards the more contemporary likes of My Morning Jacket, The Coral and Jonathan Wilson wrapped up in these 11 time-travelling tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than CSN&Y meets Simply Red 4 May 2013
By 5Ash
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This London based band have drawn comparisons with CSN&Y while their singer bears a remarkable similarity to Simply Red's Mick Hucknall. However, the sound they make requires repeated listens to fully appreciate. Having played this non-stop all week it is like hearing something completely new & original, being so unlike anything I've heard for many a year. The strength of the songs and the musicianship is only fully appreciated with repeated listening. It needs a reasonable volume to truly appreciate. While the first track has an immediacy that may not be apparent on some of the other tracks, you will soon realise that 'Houses are burning' is far superior while 'Is it all worth it' is a stunning finale. Some tracks may take a little longer, 'Roses in the yard' could be a Crosby & Nash song and, for that reason, took time to appreciate. The musicianship shines through and you'll find you haven't heard anything quite like this record since the 1970's ended, but this is no retro revival. This is a band that clearly appreciates the West Coast Sound of the late 60's/early 70's but with its focus on the here & now and what a great lead singer they have. Four stars may well be an understatement as this will definitely be in my top ten albums for 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bliss 13 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download
A really good album that gets better each time you listen; Laurel Canyon/West Coast nostalgia - there is certainly some CSN and Young in there, some America at times great harmonies and good tunes - met most of the band at a recent Devon gig - they are excellent live and have time for a chat too!
Buy this album you will not be disapointed, the band I believe are on the verge of being really big - reminds me of my youth when things were always bright and shiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treetop Flyers old fashioned wooden music 9 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
I read an earlier review that the lead vocalist sounded like Mick Hucknall which had me heading for the door, but the voices are closer to America circa 1972(Dan Peek). The whole record sounds as if the band had immersed themsleves in Laurel Canyon around 1971 - certainly CSN are a big influence. Despite these influences they have enough talent in the songwriting department to make this purchase worthwhile and hopefully they have a future. My concern is that bands like this from England such as the superb Grand Drive failed to make it despite releasing some brilliant records. Good luck to the Treetop Flyers - 40 years too late? We'll see.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Than Worth It 4 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
Treetop Flyers debut album is a folk rock album, a sound which although not unique, is still very pleasant, and The Mountain Moves is a great album. Treetop Flyers use a variety of influences and instruments to get their sound, such as acoustic guitars, electric guitars, and delicate yet confident vocals.

One of my favourite tracks is 'Picture Show' which has a country almost bluegrassy feel to it, with the electric guitar solo and uptempo sound. It's a good example of the different influences and approaches that feature on the songwriting.

Probably my absolute favourite track is the closer, 'Is It All Worth It', which is just a pure and simple folk song. The melody carried by the lyrics is great, and the harmony sounds great in the choruses. Add this to the fingerpicked guitar and you've got a great track. The chorus of this track, unsurprisingly asks, 'Is it all worth it in the end?', and I can say that it is, it's more than worth it.

This is a good album for fan of the Fleet Foxes, or similar bands. It might not be alone in sound, but that doesn't stop it being a great debut. I hope they continue to release good quality albums in years to come.
