Tindersticks The Something Rain on 180g LP + Download Code
Tindersticks has been charting a glorious trajectory since returning to action in 2008 following a 5-year hiatus. With band leader Stuart A. Staples and co-founders David Boutler and Neil Fraser forming a core trio of original members, Tindersticks definitively returned to form with two critically-acclaimed albums in 2008 and 2010. The band's new record, The Something Rain, makes this a trifecta.
The Somthing Rain brims and bristles with canny narrative thrust. Slinky, supple compositions are spiked with plenty of barbed edges and sparkling fizz. Right out of the gate, album opener "Chocolate" features David Boulter's sequel to the spoken-word classic "My Sister" from Tindersticks' eponymous 1995 release. Boulter narrates the story while the band works up a brilliant, brewing crescendo, abetted by the swirling horns of long-time collaborator Terry Edwards.
The Something Rain is indeed a new Tindersticks classic, edgier, more exuberant and more expansive, a fine 9-song set of rolling, at times rollicking, and always inimitably Tinderstickian takes on smoky Northern Soul. First Tindersticks album to be entirely produced by the band, with Stuart A. Staples assuming full recording and mixing duties at his own Le Chien Chanceux studio. Features renowned horn player Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Gallon Drunk) and vocalist Gina Foster on several tracks. 180g LP includes art print poster and download code.
