Beacons Of Ancestorship 2009 via Thrill Jockey
a note about this track

A characteristic Tortoise album is one that traverses an encyclopedia of styles and reference points, a document of where musical intersections and dialogue are occurring at a given moment in time. Beacons of Ancestorship is no different, with nods to techno, punk, electro, lo-fi noise, cut-up beats, heavily processed synths, and mournful, elegiac dirges. http://www.myspace.com/tortoise

a note about this track

On September 8, 2009, twenty years from the moment when four Manchester musicians stepped onto the stage of the Blackpool Empress Ballroom for what would become a legendary gig, Silvertone/Legacy is set to re-release the classic album that is THE STONE ROSES in 4 new formats. Over two decades, the impact of the band’s debut album has increased exponentially, inspiring musicians to form bands, marking a re-engagement of guitar music with the mainstream, and creating a youth culture that retains its influence across music, fashion, politics and art to this day. http://www.thestoneroses.co.uk/2009/05/20th-anniversary
