Editors’ Notes

Britain’s Tunng have never been easy to pigeonhole. Considered “folktronic” because they used electronics with their acoustic instruments and were essentially a duo who employed additional musicians as they saw fit. Tunng are now down to Mike Lindsay and his choice collaborators and are far from what people would consider an “electronic” outfit. (Founding member Sam Genders has left the project.) “Hustle” kicks things off with their unlikeliest of combos. Synths and banjos join together to create the swing of an accessible pop song. “It Breaks” continues in this way with drums and singer Becky Jacobs adding a feminine touch to these carefully orchestrated numbers where despite the organic folk roots, synth undertones still manage to keep a bit of dirt from the garage on the tracks. “The Roadside” again uses Jacobs’ delightfully light vocals with an ensemble of synths and tinkering acoustic instruments. The sound is a bit like an old barn fitted with air conditioning to help ward off those days when the air stagnates from the humidity. With fresh keyboards at his disposal, Lindsay and his cohorts create a new brand of ancient folk-pop.

...And Then We Saw Genius

Tunng's latest album is quite simply one of the best releases this year. It blends unbeatable instrumental craftsmanship with impeccable production and finishes. They cover a myriad genres and end up delivering timeless track after timeless track. 'Hustle', the opening track is an obvious masterpiece but give it a few plays and you'll discover many hidden gems whithin

Another great album by Tunng.

Very descriptive music. I especially like Weekend Away and October.

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...
