New Beauty from Tindersticks

  • tindersticks_2012The power of voice is fully on display in this new Tindersticks number. Really, that’s all there is, other than some really careful orchestration that quietly surrounds the vocals on this brand new duet, which features Lhasa de Sela. Still, the varying tonal notes between the two voices is quite striking; there’s a smoky quality on both male/female sides…it’s almost like a really seductive lounge act. Interestingly, the song, as well as each song on the album, will be accompanied by a film as part of the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. You can find the video for this track HERE. Their new release is titled The Waiting Room and sees a release date on January 22nd via City Slang.

New Music From Tindersticks

tindersticksReally not sure how I missed this sweet new Tindersticks tune “Black Smoke” that hit the interwebs a couple of weeks ago.  It’s sort of a 60s throw back sounding tune with vocals that fit in perfectly alongside that sweet sax solo at the end.  The new Tindersticks album, Falling Down a Mountain, will hit stores Jan. 25th in the UK (via 4AD) and Feb. 16th in the states (via Constellation). This should be another album to watch for in 2010.
