It's always a good sign when a band has so much material and, of course, the inherent talent, to release a 'mini-album' in between long playing opuses. So that's what we have here. Five delicate yet powerfully expansive tracks recorded as a result of live improvisation on their tour that supported their previous album, 'Tripper'. Part Northern European lullaby, part string backed epic, 'Under Giant Trees' is a sterling addition to the already extensive Leaf catalogue. Essential.
