Need to rediscover Tortoise.


One of the first albums I ever downloaded via Napster was Standards. I just did my homework and confirmed that Napster was born in 1999, Standards came out in 2000 (I remember sitting at the computer and thinking of something leftfield to download lol)


I need to hear TNT, one of those albums that's built of stealth technology as it always seems to float under my radar.

Standards, for me, really set the bar high for what music can be

Of course MNLWND and TNT are true classics

And Beacons of Ancestorship (or whatever it's called) is an understated, brilliant work

And IAAY is...well, I go back and forth on that one

(The opener is amazing though)


Anyway, glad Tortoise is back in business

They are truly one of a kind

Heard Shake hands with danger from the forthcoming album on public radio this past Friday night. Sweet fucking track. Full excite for the new album.

I can't find the track online yet. Will continue to search.

      Bored by endless one-style mixes?
      For his 40th birthday, mcBodach randomly picked 20 records from my 1,600 pieces record collection -
      Jazz, Hip Hop, Dubstep, Postrock, Electro, Surf, Eurovision Song Contest. You name it.

      Only 20 records for a 40th birthday? So I chose 2 tracks per record and mixed them in a pendular motion. We start and end with Iceberg Slim, Biz Markie comes 3rd and 38th, Orbital come 13th and 28th, Martyn comes 15th and 26th and so on. The peak time is for Tortoise.
      It became a mad mix with unexpected transitions. Ever heard a Eurovision Song Contest title swoon over Orbital? Well, here we are.
      Enjoy the journey.
