Tortoise Live – July 17, 2009
Chicago band Tortoise is a band of instrumentalists that have garnered a sturdy cult following over the years. Their sound can be described as the intersection of dub, dance, jazz, techno and rock. Their new album, Beacons of Ancestorship mines all of this territory, and continues deeper into Keith Emerson-like synth and irregular rhythms. Listen to them live on Left of The Dial with Jeff McCord.
