Tortoise: TNT Red-Hot Vinyl Repressing

img  Tobias

Thanks to its organic surface and fluent lines, „TNT“ discreetly hid the amount of prost-production and general care which had gone into it. After the actual studio sessions, pieces were often rearranged digitally, keeping their warm timbres intact, while transforming sections significantly and combining phrases from various jams into new compositions. Brass, woodwinds and strings also considerably extended the tight band line-up of Tortoise, making them sound rich and refined. Certainly today, it still sounds perfectly up to date and has aged well despite the group progressing even further on subsequent efforts.

Thrill Jockey is making „TNT“ available as a 2LP set, which will include a coupon for a free MP3 download of the album.
