Listing Detail Tabs

If the Velvet Underground were from the Home Counties and had never heard of heroin, they might sound something like this. Plantman the 2D character is a fictional supervillain from the world of Marvel Comics who, armed with his "vegeray", is capable of controlling and animating plant life. Whereas Plantman the 3D entity is a three-piece band from Southend, mainly based around singer, songwriter and guitarist Matt Randall, who has no superpowers but can sing in that blank way that indie boys have since Lou Reed, and can play guitar in that iridescent way that only Vini Reilly of Durutti Column can. He also has a past, as a member of indie band Beatglider. And Whispering Trees isn't the first Plantman release, although the previous one, 2010's Closer to the Snow, was a handmade CDR affair, albeit one that sold out of its initial run. But this is Randall's first major statement, and he has hardly stinted with it: there are 15 tracks on Whispering Trees, even if they are, musically speaking, mainly variations on a theme, all trebly guitars that appear to have been dipped in sunlight and wan melodies that appear to have been composed on the cold grey morning after being dumped.
