The Playlist Series – The Trees & The Wild


The Trees & The Wild is one of the best things that happened to the Southeast Asian music scene – and I’m not joking. Pulling their roots from Indonesian folk music, post-rock and shamanic chants, they have proven to be groundbreaking and far-out. Their live performances are astonishing, disorientating at times, as they easily put the audience in trance. No wonder Vincent Moon got into them during his Petites Planètes excursion in Indonesia in 2011. Currently working on their second album to be released later this year, the band has put together a “Bad dream wake up” playlist for The Playlist Series, and it’ll pretty much drag you in to this confusing state of mind. Whyd and Deezer players below.


“It is a playlist compiled by us, inspired by dreams and reality.”
