Tortoise’s self-titled debut incorporates many musical styles and influences and combines them into one very distince sound. So distinct that sometime after the release of this record they became recognized as the leaders of a new musical movement. Tortoise exploits the recording studio, in that they utilize the recording process as a compostional tool or “sixth member”, thus creating a boundless parameter in which to create music. Recorded at Idful Studios by John McEntire.
