DOWNLOAD: Tortoise - Prepare Your Coffin (MP3)

Tortoise

Tortoise are currently wrapping up a short run of February shows. They'll be in NYC this June for a performance at (Le) Poisson Rouge as part of the Carefusion Jazz Festival New York happening June 17th-26th. Also on the bill are Aethereal Bace, a trio comprised of drummers Nasheet Waits and Eric Mcpherson and tenor sax player Abraham Burton. Tickets are on sale.

The track above is off the band's 2009 record, Beacons of Ancestorship, which came out on Thrill Jockey. Their 2009 dates in have support of that. Tortoise's John McEntire has also been at work co-producing the forthcoming Broken Social Scene record.

Should be good Tortoise show with their new material but the space is kinda small so it will probably sell out quicker, so they should play somewhere else too while there here.

Do you mind if I steal this and use it for every inane posting I come across?

Not saying this post was inane, at all, this is just the best spam comment ever.

No "Seneca" on that setlist? That's criminal. Seems like a similar set to what they did last year at LPR. Looking forward to seeing them again.

i thought it was pretty amazing that these bands brought everyone to their feet in Carnegie Hall. Everyone was there with good vibes celebrating an amazing culture that embraces compassion and tolerance. I have no complaints other than the 2 hipsters behind me who had a comment about everything that was wrong with the venue. Why go?
