Because they released a collection of scores a few months back I mistakenly assumed this too was a score. Nope: NEW TINDERSTICKS ALBUM

tindersticks: the something rain - City Slang Records

Quote:
tindersticks recent history is a story of gradually rebuilding following a period, around 2003, of breaking it all down. It was a painful time, but it is only now that they feel those hard decisions were the right ones . Their music has grown into a different shape that could never have been found by holding on to the past. Since reforming they have been ever progressive, never looking back. This was felt most accutely on their recent soundtrack work for Claire Denis and the accompanying ambitious cinematic live shows, and culminating in the making of "The Something Rain".

They have gradually grown into a tight five piece band, utilising the riches of a great extended family of musicians.

There are the usual collaborators here - Terry Edwards (saxophone) and Andy Nice (cello, soprano sax) – and on "The Something Rain" they are also joined by: Thomas Bloch (crystal bachet), Gina Foster (vocals) Julian Siegel (bass clarinet, tenor saxophone) and Will Wilde (chromatic harmonica).

Through this period of change, tindersticks enjoyed the support of Beggars Banquet/4AD. In their recent parting with the label, they left behind what had become a comfortable space for making music. In its place within the studio there was, in Staples’ words,"a new creative edginess around, and a determination."

"The Something Rain" was recorded in bursts over approximately a year, from May 2010 to August 2011 and mixed in September-October 2011. It was a time of experimentation, of searching and honing down a shape and sound. Of the twenty or so ideas they set out with, nine songs became the final album.
Release date isn't until February 20th, but it has leaked. We will spend some quality time together on the morrow.

The first album is amazing. Raindrops is my favourite, easily one of the saddest and most beautiful songs out there.

The first three albums are all amazing. Can't wait to see them again. Their last concert I saw (in 2010) was a highlight of that year. So yes, I will be there in Amsterdam on March 11th.
