Wyndham Rain Long before the last wave crashes / will be the fall of man. / No more escape in sleep / where trees rise and leaves fall / to scatter over the empty American valley….. / But for now, listen, listen: / Can you hear / the wind in the branches? / The faint crackling / of the fire / in the midnight timber? Favorite track: Burning the Midnight Timber.

This tenth album from In The Branches offers an hour of brand new music from Shane Cotee's prolific ambient guitar project.

Acoustic guitar was the prominent instrument on "In The Branches", though it made be difficult to hear through the layers of pitch-shifting and vast space. Other sound sources include the human voice, field recordings, and electric guitars.
