Tortoise ponderings


Is it just me, or is the drum part from Tortoise’s “Seneca” one of the absolute best drum tracks ever? So raw, so funky, so noisy and restrained and over-the-top, all at once. The rest of “Standards” is kinda so-so, and their last record, “It’s all around you” kind of left me cold, but that’s OK, I still have the drum part from “Seneca”…

And “DJed” off “Millions now living…” still sounds pretty great after all this time, too!
