Tindersticks The Hungry Saw on 180g LP
Tindersticks is a legendary UK band that formed in Nottingham circa 1991 and put out a series of dark, majestic albums throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. After a 5-year hiatus following the release of 2003's Waiting for the Moon, founding members Stuart Staples, David Boulter and Neil Fraser reformed the band and have issued four additional acclaimed studio records and counting.
2008's The Hungry Saw was a true return to form for the band after their half decade hiatus. In that time, front-man Stuart Staples relocated to France and built his own Chien Chanceux recording studio, where this album was made (co-recorded and mixed by Staples himself). Original members Staples, David Boulter and Neil Fraser were augmented by the rhythm section of Tim Belhom (drums) and Dan Mckinna (bass).
A long list of guest players was also included in the sessions, and the record – while cloaked in the inimitably beautiful, tempered melancholy and delicate irony that has marked the band’s past ouevre – also bristles with renewed energy, focus, experimentation and yes, even playfulness. A welcome return by one of the most interesting and literate English bands of the last two decades.
