Read on to find out more information about their splendid new album…

Having formed in 2001, the San Francisco trio comprised of Lynne Angel, Brian Gorman and Ben Thorne, has become well know for their loop- heavy sonic soundscapes, overlaying harmonies, melodies and poly-rhythms. The effect is something unlike most popular music today, an aural overhaul, a hypnotic surrender to their sound and a wonder to witness, live or on record.

With six studio albums under their belts, these bastions of the San Francisco scene are showing no signs of slowing with the release of their new album These Factory Days (Southern Records) slated for March of 2013. Building upon their musical mosaics and seamless song-craft the recent addition of Thorne on bass has allowed the band to fully metamorphose into a three-headed creature walking the wires between chaos and cacophony, subtly and synchronicity. As one reviewer said, “Tartufi are unafraid of venturing into a complex sonic world where post-rock, psych and experimental pop are built from endless loops and pulsing polyrhythms, then blasted off into space to see what happens. The result is a beautiful, and unpredictable, wall of sound”.

With These Factory Days, Tartufi have further advanced upon their layered spectrum of sound. Welcoming good friend Ben Thorne (Low Red Land, Minot) into the band to take over the role of bass player, Tartufi is now a fully realized machine. Whereas before Angel and Gorman preferred the whirlwind approach, favouring a systematic shock to the senses – with the addition of Thorne the band is able to utilize time and space to elicit an overall sense of complete synchronicity and total fluidity. If you thought you were in a strange alien river before then best grab a paddle because this river flows into the sea of sonic accord.

Tartufi took over a year and a half to track and mix These Factory Days, once again with the aid of Tim Green (Melvins, Howlin Rain, Joanna Newsom, Fresh & Onlys) at Louder Studios and The Hangar, and also with Scott McDowell at Hyde Street. The result is a band fully settled within their sound, secure amongst an ocean of interlocking counterweights, where you are at once upon the bright surface and walking the cavernous depths.

Tartufi further push the boundaries of sonic sameness and classic structure to evoke an overall sense of movement and progression. Pop songs be damned – Tartufi is a country of sound.
