Amoeba Review

Brad 02/08/2013

1994 will also be remembered by me as the year that I discovered Tortoise and the year that I discovered Thrill Jockey. I will be honest and admit that I only listened to this album because this dude I had a crush on told me that I had to listen to it. So I of course went and bought it so that we would have something to talk about. But I did end of becoming a big fan. This album sounded like nothing that I had heard before. I had never listened to anything remotely jazzy my whole life. I was into checking out new things this year. And Tortoise was for sure a new thing for me. They were a sort of post rock mash up of electronica and jazz and rock. This album is what I think of when I think of Chicago. This was their first album. I also really liked their next couple of records. Millions Now Living Will Never Die in 1996, TNT in 1998 & Standards in 2001. I became hooked on the label Thrill Jockey after this album. And got into albums by The Sea & Cake, Trans Am, Eleventh Dream Day, Mouse On Mars & Oval. I had not listened to this album in over 10 years probably. But it has been fun to rediscover this band and remember why I got into them in the first place.

 

This album featured in Brad’s Best Albums of 1994 blog.
