Today we're listening to Tortoise, a post-rock band from Chicago. Formed by studio musicians, their tracks give off the impression of capturing casual jam sessions improvised by masters. 1998's TNT is a mellow trip through dozens of genres: slacker rock, cool jazz, minimalist electronic, etc. TNT has become a Flow State office go-to. 2004's It's All Around You uses more drum machines and synths, showing influences like Radiohead and DJ Shadow. We discovered Tortoise via the soundtrack of 2014’s The Rover, starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. We hope you enjoy the music – it’s all lyric-free.
