Tortoise "Standards" Thrill Jockey (Label) 5 stars

In 1990 Chicago gave birth to one of the most original musical outfits worldwide. By combining dub, electronic, jazz, ambient and classical elements, Tortoise has created beautiful, light atmospheric collages. “Standards” pulls a little more to the electronic side than their last hit album “INT,” yet still stays fresh with catchy melodies. Through their innovative music, bands like Tortoise have been breathing originality into the underground music scene since the 1990s. If you want to stay up on what’s to come in the future, don’t miss out on “Standards.”

-Boyde “Void” Wenger is co-owner of Mad About Music.
