Giants in the Trees, B Radicals

Anyone who has gone to see Giants in the Trees simply because the band features Krist Novoselic have no doubt been pleasantly surprised. Because this isn’t a showcase for the former Nirvana bassist: It’s a well-oiled quartet of dextrous musicians playing a bewitching hybrid of rock, folk and world music, with Jillian Raye’s dreamy vocals and Ray Prestegard’s slick guitar licks guided by Novoselic and drummer Erik Friend’s rhythm section. Their songs have taken inspiration from the flora and fauna of Washington, and their sophomore album (titled Volume II) casts an ethereal, hard-to-pin-down spell.
