Minute Bodies: The Intimate World of F. Percy Smith
City Slang
Catalogue Number
Release Date
June 9, 2017


Back in 2016, Tindersticks scored a film about the pioneering British naturalist and documentarian F. Percy Smith. Said film premiered at the 2016 BFI London Film Festival, and year and a half later the music has found its way to wax for the first time. Across Minute Bodies, Tindersticks manage to conjure an air of both intimacy and grandeur in much the same manner in which Smith used the microscopic to make sense of the magnificent. Ondes Martinot, guitar, drums and a musical saw form the basis of much of the fare on Minute Bodies. The way tracks like ‘Gathering Moss’ and ‘Scarlet Runner’ spool out their melodies in the manner of a cat pulling at a ball of string is delightfully engaging.
