Tortoise It's All Around You on Limited Edition Colored LP

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Over the past few decades, Tortoise has produced some of the most innovative and influential albums in all of music. From the deep and understated rhythms and tones of their 1996 landmark, Millions Now Living Will Never Die, to the bombastic rock of 2001's Standards, Tortoise have always been ahead of their time. 2004's It's All Around You is no different, again finding the band doing what they do best; building and rebuilding upon melodies and rhythms with their own deft touch.

Written largely in the studio, It's All Around You was crafted over the course of a full year, and allowed Tortoise the use of John McEntire's Soma Electronic Music Studios (whose clients have included Wilco and Stereolab among others) in serving not just as a state-of-the-art recording facility, but as a compositional tool as well. It took months of continuous writing, recording, tinkering, mixing, and perfecting to bring It's All Around You to its finalized state.

Tortoise are one of the only bands of their size and stature to have always produced their own records, and it's largely because of this that they are able to achieve and maintain such a distinct and precise sound. The band's extensive knowledge of the studio's equipment and their ability to feel at home without a restrictive deadline allowed them to explore a multitude of approaches in the composing, editing, and coloring process of their compositions.

The results of this process are clear in the lush, orchestrated tones, intricate melodies, and densely elaborate rhythms that make It's All Around You one of the band's most adventurous and thoughtful records to date. These songs build deliberately and consistently, amassing music of great detail, and exploring their layers is both exciting and infinitely rewarding!
