this morning i woke up thinking of Tortoise and their amazing 1998 album TNT that showed amazing jazz influences compared with the band’s first or last albums, which, in turn, are more turned towards a great instrumental experimentation platform to post-rock and electronica.
so this morning, i listened again to Beacons of Ancestorship (their latest album from 2009) and felt ashamed to have slightly forgotten the great opener High Class Slim Came Floatin’ In, such as a few fantastic tracks, i.e. Northern Something or Penumbra.
so this morning, as i had a quick look online, i was offered a perfect easter present.
to celebrate this post from the Chicago band, how about (re)discovering Prepare your coffin, one of Tortoise’s best songs from Beacons of Ancestorship?
