Tortoise: TNT (INDIE EXCLUSIVE, JALAPENO GREEN) LP
|Availability:||Out of stock|
TNT is Tortoise's third studio album, originally released in 1998. REPRESSED IN 2022 ON JALAPENO GREEN VINYL. Almost universally derided when it came out in 1998 (I remember, it was shocking), TNT quickly became like a family member we'd listen to it repeatedly, totally entranced by its quirky combination of jazz, post-rock and experimental electronics. Okay so some levelled that it was too 'light' and had lost the Kraut intensity of previous records, but it's an album that takes time to truly appreciate and hearing it now it seems bizarre that anyone could dislike it. With one of the most memorable sleeves of the 90s, it features 'Swung from the Gutters', 'I Set My Face to the Hillside' and 'The Suspension Bridge at Iguazu Falls' - combining everything that Tortoise do so well. Classic, innit.
