Chicago’s based band Tortoise haven’t released an album since 2009’s Beacons of Ancestorship. On January 22,they are due to release their new album The Catastrophist via Thrill Jockey. You can find the first single from the album “Gesceap” down below.

 

The album features vocals from Yo La Tengo’s Georgia Hubley and U.S. Maple/Dead Rider’s Todd Rittmann.

 

A press release states that the album’s inspiration came after they received a commission from the City of Chicago in 2010. They were asked to create music “rooted in its ties to the area’s noted jazz and improvised music communities.” They performed some “loose themes” live and eventually turned them into something “orchestrated and complex” for the album.

My name is kira and I study Media and Communications. I live in the beautiful and wonderfully diverse city of Brighton. I've loved writing since a young child when I would write poems about my goldfish and leaves I found on the floor. (I'm hoping my writing style has slightly progressed since then!) I love listening to live music and try to go to as many gigs as possible. Follow my social media if you want to know more!
