Episode Summary

EDIT
Tortoise - Instrumental Post-Rock Band
AIRED:
Tortoise started in Chicago in 1990 when bassist Doug McCombs and drummer John Herndon began working with John McEntire, Bundy K. Brown, and Dan Bitney. Long heralded as the poster band for post-rock, Tortoise took a daunting array of influence and crafted a unique sound that astonishingly avoids any sense of pastiche. All of Tortoise's founding members come from punk and indie rock scenes, but by fusing together their love of '70s German psych, electric jazz, minimal composition, dub, progressive rock, hip-hop, avant-garde electronics, film music and traditional American music, the band deftly crafts a sound that is hugely unique and instantly recognizable.moreless
