Tortoise Podcast On New Album Beacons Of Ancestorship
John Doran , June 17th, 2009 07:56

To tickle your ears and pique your interest in their ace new album Beacons Of Ancestorship, here is a skewed podcast from the avant rockers

When we submitted some questions to Chicago post rock quintet Tortoise, little did we know that they would end up getting recorded, tweaked and remixed. Their record label Thrill Jockey were so pleased with the results that we've got them here for you to download as a podcast.

If anything, the application of a strangely medicated American robot voice to John Doran's questions has rendered his lines of questioning even more stupid than normal.
