Tortoise – Magnet Pulls Through

Minimal, restrained, and (unfortunately for some) tasteful; this sums up Tortoise doing what they do best. Sure they’ve gone into some sparkly funky areas before (‘Eros’ and ‘Monica’ from 2001’s ‘Standards’ album), but this is usually the type of material one holds onto as a fine example of what the US ‘Post Rock’ act are all about. Well, it’s this or the hellish Weather Report meets Ozric Tentacles shenanigans they are also known to inflict upon the listener. This is the opening track from their 1994 self-titled debut album.
