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.
