'(Listen for) The Rag And Bone Man' takes us on a dreamlike journey through dark landscapes populated by stray nursery rhyme characters, mysterious woman who peer into the psyche and pools of light that appear like reflections of their pastoral upbringing...
It was recorded on the estate of an 11th century manor house in rural Herefordshire and finished in a Victorian chapel in the East End of London - settings that exemplify the vividly spectral quality of this album.
A policy of using 'real' instruments, including a double bass, zither and piano has resulted in a rich, organic sound, coloured further by a guitar that brings to mind the trademark sound of And Also The Trees' formative years.
