anne31 Très belle chanson en français, qui m'en rappelle une autre tout aussi magnifique Plus de liaisons... Favorite track: Tue-moi.

Entleiber In that inimitable way, Tindersticks once again come along with an album that sweeps you off your feet with its quiet intensity. I want to proclaim my love for the rather unusual opener with its catchy beat and groove, Stuart's incomparable voice and that slightly disquieting middle part that I like so much and that stirring ending that I like even more. Favorite track: You'll Have To Scream Louder.

about

Stuart Staples was already nurturing seeds for a different kind of Tindersticks album before lockdown halted their tour in early 2020. If 2019’s “No Treasure but Hope” saw the band rediscovering themselves as a unit, the follow-up reconfigures that unit so that everything familiar about Tindersticks sounds fresh again. “Distractions” is an album of subtle realignments and connections from a restless, intuitive band. Rich in texture and atmosphere, it lives between its open spaces and details, always finding new ways to connect with a song.

If it’s an album that resists easy summation, at least one thing is clear: though it isn’t untouched by the lockdown, “Distractions” is not ‘a lockdown album’. As Staples says, “I think the confinement provided an opportunity for something that was already happening. It is definitely a part of the album, but not a reaction to it.”
