""No One Will Ever Know" video on Gorilla vs Bear"

San Francisco’s Father/Daughter Records just sent over this appropriately hazy video for “No One Will Ever Know,” a perfectly sleepy/breezy new jam from Brooklyn’s Family Trees. The song appears on the b-side of the group’s Dream Talkin 7? single, which was released yesterday on the label. Directed by Family Trees’ drummer Amanda Finn. - Gorilla vs Bear


"Dream Talkin on Forkcast"

The folks over at Father Daughter Records sent us over this lovely, lazy 1950s-feeling tune from Brooklyn outfit Family Trees. "Dream Talkin'" is the title track from Family Trees' new 7", which is the first release on the label. - Pitchfork Media


"Dream Talkin"

Back in January we introduced you to Family Trees, three Brooklyn kids who - with an epic 14 track sampler - were yearning to escape the city and dip their toes into the ocean. Well, that dream is still going strong on new track, 'Dream Talkin', frontman Ryan having assembled Joe and Amanda again to record a 7" for father/daughter. With twanging guitars, a rollicking refrain and de-fuzzed vocals it's braver than their previous efforts but still as swoonsomely charming. Less a dip, more a perfectly executed clifftop dive, then. - Neu Magazine


"Dream Talkin review"

Ok, I know it’s a little lazy to say this but Family Trees truly do have a Beach Boys thing going on. From the softly strummed guitars to the falsetto and sometimes droned out vocals, this Brooklyn three-some wear their influences on their sleeve.

“Dream Talkin” has some pleasant moments, but overall this is a song to listen to while gently swaying around your bedroom. The shuffling drums will especially help you figure out your moves. It’s coming out on a 7? on June 29 on Father/Daughter Records. - Microphone Memory Emotion


"Required Listen: Family Trees"

I've always been jealous of the teens from the late 50's early 60's. They cruise around in cool cars, drink from flasks, and have prom music that is both beautiful and eerie. The time was marked by straightforward songwriting that seemed romantic, but after close inspection the music had layers of darkness behind the klangy struck guitar chords.

Brooklyn's Family Trees isn't helping my jealousy as they are putting out music that plays off this late 50's idea of gorgeous melodies with shadows of deeper meaning. Family Trees are doing their own thing and it just so happens it's my thing too. I really hope this style of music catches on and with the buzz of The Morning Benders and now Family Trees stepping onto the scene it seems we're only at the beginning. The music from Family Trees is sincere, controlled, and has this unique aura that demands you give their sounds a spin. As far as new faces in 2010 are concerned, Family Trees is tops. - We Listen For You
