Ten tracks of exquisite post-rock/electronic melancholy from everybody’s favourite Thrill Jockey Chicagoans, Tortoise – pressed up on a sparkling reissue for the 2016 crew. One of the most laid-back releases in the Tortoise catalogue, It’s All Around You is also their saddest. From the graceful New Age meets musak piano/keys of ‘Crest’ to the hushed drum work out of ‘Unknown’ or the Boards of Canada sleepwalk of ‘By Dawn’ these tracks hum with a mournful, 4AM in Winter vibe; empty red wine glasses, orange-fireside glow, hangdog eyes. It’s beautiful. If you want a sample, check album highlight ‘The Lithium Stiffs’ which sets the tone for this record: a delicious shiver of French 60s Pop processed through Tortoise FX and keys, if you aren’t won over after that… you are dead inside.
