The Catastrophist

The first new Tortoise album in a nigh-on seven years! The officially legendary post-rock (in the original, interesting sense of the term) group have convened to produce an inventive melange of sonic approaches: first single Gesceap is a pulsing piece led by minimal-but-melodic synths. All bodes well. On Thrill Jockey....view item »

Tortoise & Bonnie Prince Billy
The Brave & The Bold

Oh God. Although they've once or twice come up with some great records I often think that Tortoise are taking the piss. Same with Bonnie Prince Billy. It always seems as though he's laughing into his sleeve at the gullibility of his loyal fans. Well now they've both got together to take the piss out of the record buying public aga...view item »

Standards doesn’t contain many standards, but it is full of amazing post-rock that genuinely sounds like it comes after rock. Pressed onto white-with-red-splatter vinyl in a screen-p...view item »

It's All Around You

Right reviews then.... Tortoise... 1st new album in god knows how many years. Wasn't sure what to expect of this cos I used to love Tortoise but over the years have got a little bored of 'em.... This is a surprisingly enjoyable listen. I guess it's got the jazzy elements which you'd expect and the big percu...view item »


The debut album by Tortoise is creeping, technically proficient post-rock mixing the pleasing ambient sounds of bass, drums, xylophone and electronics. “Magnet Pulls Through”, “Spiderwebbed”, “Tin Cans And Twine” and “Ry Cooder” are the best tracks on here for their m...view item »
