TORTOISE
BEACONS OF ANCESTORSHIP
THRILLJOCK
Our beloved TORTOISE are back & it's hard to believe that it's been 5 years since their last album. Each TORTOISE album has a distinct feel & the first thing that jumped out at us about this one was the 'in-your-face' live drum production & they synth-heavy arrangements. The normally restrained Jeff Parker cuts loose a few times with some raw solos that would certainly make John Mclaughlin smile. It seems that the boys in TORTOISE have finally excepted that they really are a 'post-rock' or prog band & though the songs to get complex from time to time, TORTOISE has a knack for making it all sound so easy. It's hard to totally pin these guys down but there is a bit of a 70's Euro-horror soundtrack vibe at times ala GOBLIN & their contemporary counterparts ZOMBI but maybe that's just because of the heavy analogue synths. Surprisingly, most of the songs are under six minutes which gives "Beacons..." more of a proper rock album feel. TORTOISE has rewarded us for our five year wait with another rock solid release.
