The Tree People's "Human Voices" on New Yorker writer Sasha Frere-Jones' Best of 2009 list!

Here is our reissue album, Human Voices, at number #34 on the New Yorker magazine music writer Sasha Frere-Jones' Best of 2009 album list. We love the New Yorker, it is one of our favorite magazines, and we are honored to be on their music writer's list. (Note: we have been on and off this list, which changes daily, for the last few weeks, but we were definitely on the list for awhile (see list below)and that is a good thing. We hope Sasha from the New Yorker will be listening to our new album when it is released in 2010.)
