A Garden of mythical Tunes!

hello everyone! if you are so inclined you should purchase this CD. it makes my heart flutter with the amazing tones. i sit reading/doing homework/chatting on the phone and it makes a perfect sound for the background. why no by the whole cd? Sweet william and Red and Green Jenny Again and Woodcat are EXTREMLEY GOOD. do not fail to purchase this cd, because you will regret it!

another resplendent album

i am hardly disappointed with tunng's second album. mother's daughter and other songs was aurally stimulating, both lyrically and musically. comments of the inner chorus has the same atmospheric and mellow drone as the first one, but it's exactly what appeals to most fans of this band.

inventive funk

this band is so amazing they are able to sow together inventive sound technology with classic and insightful lyrics. they are the essence of indie with new and edged lyrics that leave intertwine with the music perfectly. nothing but good stuff to say about this band, this is the cd to buy

About Tunng

Though the core members of Tunng, Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay, began their musical partnership composing scores for softcore porn, they soon decided to form a band that would bring together Genders' gentle vocals with Lindsay's guitar playing and songwriting. To fill out their sound, the duo added more guitars as well as female vocals, turntables, programming, and other percussion. Often labeled as either "future folk" or "folktronica" by critics who had a hard time placing the band's sound, Tunng released a handful of singles in their native Britain before their full-length debut, This Is...Tunng: Mother's Daughter and Other Songs, came out in 2005 (the album was later re-released in the U.S. the following year on Ace Fu). In 2006 their follow-up, Comments of the Inner Chorus, hit shelves. By this time more of a collective than anything else, especially because initially Genders had opted out of performing live, the six-piece (Genders and Lindsay plus vocalists Becky Jacobs and Ashley Bates and multi-instrumentalists Martin Smith and Phil Winter) released Good Arrows the next year. Time off and touring meant four years would pass before the group returned with 2010's And Then We Saw Land, their first album without co-founder Genders. With geographical differences and family life taking precedence, Tunng would reconvene in lead songwriter Mike Lindsay's newly adopted home of Reykjavik, Iceland to start work on their follow-up. Taking the jam sessions from Iceland to Dorset, U.K., and spending two weeks recording, Tunng released their fifth album, Turbines, in mid-2013. Their next album, Songs You Make at Night, would see the return of Genders to the fold as well as the reunion of the band's original lineup. The record was pieced together from various remote sessions and was released in the summer of 2018. ~ Marisa Brown
