TORTOISE – The Catastrophist (Thrill Jockey)

Six years on from their last album, Tortoise are back with another batch of atmospheric instrumentals and quirky songs, including a cover of David Essex’s ‘Rock On’! Based on a suite of music commissioned in 2010 by the City Of Chicago to celebrate its rich musical heritage, these pieces have been expanded and reworked from those original ideas into the sort of lushly crafted tunes that we expect from the band.
