SEE THIS WORLD: The Future Is 2020: CD

May 25, 2021

Jeez, does Dave Tree ever stop? No. No he does not: the former frontman of Boston’s Tree keeps grinding, both with his SweeTree Ink screen-printing biz and here, as frontman of See The World. On this slab, he’s as earnest and direct as ever, cranking out nine new songs. It’s hard to succinctly discuss these, as they often veer in different directions a few times per tune: a mosh part, say, to thrash, to old school punk. No matter the permutation, the band behind kills it, and Dave is Dave. Engaging and direct throughout. –Michael T. Fournier (
