Tortoise: TNT 12"
TNT is Tortoise’s third studio album, originally released in 1998. This re-issue is pressed on high quality virgin vinyl and packaged in a tip-on gatefold jacket with spot UV printing and free download card. TNT builds upon the spare, instrumental framework of the group’s first, self-titled album, and the extended edits, melodic adventures, and klangfarben of the subsequent full-length release, Millions Now Living Will Never Die. Further to this, Tortoise’s interest in the possibilities offered by the remixing of tracks was realized within the actual production of TNT; individual elements, sections, or sometimes whole compositions mutate within the album’s shifting framework. These techniques were suitably realized thanks in part to the use of non-linear digital recording and editing methods, the first example of such work for the group.Tags: 90s gb325 indie melodic midwest post-rock yoobl
