The Good Tortoise

(originally posted at

Yesterday, authenticgeek and I bought our tickets for the Tortoise show at The Independent on October 20th. For my co-workers who may not be familiar with the band, I picked out four Tortoise songs and put them in a shared playlist called "The Good Tortoise." They are:
  1. His Second Story Island (slow, soft, sad)
  2. Glass Museum (progressive yet downtempo, one of my first musical loves)
  3. It's All Around You (title track from their latest album)
  4. Stretch, You Are All Right (also off their latest release)
You can find some preview tracks in mp3 format here. And if you like what you hear, I urge you on over to Sputnik7 to find the music video for their song "Seneca." The video uses old "golden age of NASA" footage.
