    While the end of the aughts saw a flurry of youthful, peppy-sad alt-rock combos whose quicksilver mixture of emo and power pop owed more to All-American Rejects than to Weezer, Florida trio Between the Trees stand out, even amidst that bustling crowd. Through line-up changes and ever-swirling label-shuffling that has mewed up many a worthy band, Between the Trees not only survived, but matured as a band. Their sparkling sophomore record, SPAIN, boasts a simple cover, an adrift sailboat upon a beige backdrop, but the towering music within builds upon a sly and well-received, but much more understated, debut. SPAIN is an enveloping record full of dark, yet upbeat, swatches of poetry, subtle linguistic tricks of the light, never gaudy, the sort which linger in the back of a listener's consciousness only to sneak up hours later. The record is far from brilliant, but it's ear-popping pop with some truly dazzling moments which back up AP magazine's 2007 listing of the band as "one to watch."
