Try to put them in one category, and you can't. Arboles Libres are just what their name implies, free. Free from the boundaries of genrefication, free from the pressures of a band that began with visions of grandeur and free from the self-confining, self-defeating nature of musicians determined to be artists of a certain type. That freedom comes from the very honest nature of the band's beginnings, and the resignation to create a naturally flowing experimental sound.
Arboles Libres didn't start out as a trio of talented musicians seeking fame or critical acclaim in their hometown. There were no plans to release an EP (which is now set for the end of the month). It was just guitarist/vocalist Eddie Moreno with an open collective some three years ago. And then, about 18 months ago, Eddie and guitarist, vocalist, and harmonica player Juan "Nacho" Londono started jamming out together, and there was a sudden spark of inspiration. Drummer and percussionist Anthony Genovese came along, and Arboles Libres was formed.
