Owltree is Antti Korpela. He composed these pieces over 2006 and 2007.This jazzy instrumental album was originally released on the Lo-Kiwi netlabel which closed operations in January 2009. They have since handed over their releases to handling by the Catnap netlabel.The Lo-Kiwi netlabel described TENDER PECKING in this way:Owltree's first is possibly one of our finest releases ever. Tender Pecking is hard to describe, but it combines jazzy harmonies, ambient soundscapes and only owl knows what. This is not background music, this is something that needs to be listened to! Be brave and let Owltree take you into the night.
