It’s been over 2 years since I posted something about Tunng, ask increasingly becoming one of my favorite bands on the planet. The combination of earnest, speculative front-porch folk and organic, digestible electronics has unfortunately led to the “folktronica” tag, but really, looking past labels what you get on their newest record (stateside on Thrill Jockey/ Full-Time Hobby in UK) is just solid music. Today’s post has been a staple of my drive-time listening for the past month, and easily slots into a spot at the top of Tunng’s best songs. Especially when the chorus shatters the quietude into epic revelry. Great stuff.
