Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TUNNG

Turbines

2013-10-11

 Six people, multiple instruments and multiple voices. That's what you get on Turbines, the fifth release from British band Tunng.  This folk band offers boy/girl multi-tracked vocals, guitar, keys, and beat programming, so one can't really call it straight-up folk.  Let's call it experimental electro-folk (folktronica?).  Turbines is somewhat quiet, yet it's rich and full of substance.  Tunng reminds me a bit of Grand Rapids band, The Soil and The Sun, a band that I thought was like no other....until now.
