When I say TNT is an expiremental album I mean it. Tortoise mixes in electronica in "The Equator", "Jetty", and "Almost Always is Nearly Enough. Electronica comes up in most of these songs, but in the ones I just named off elctronica is the most heavily used. Tortoise can be used for so many different things. You can listen to this album if you want to think, do work, or you can intently listen to this music and find out it's true greatness. When I first started listening to this album I just used it as backround music. When I actually started focusing and listening to this I found out that this music is very inventive and every track is different in so many ways.
TNT (Tortoise album). TNT is the third album by American post-rock band Tortoise "Jetty" is an alternate version of 1997 song "La Jetée" by Tortoise's jazzier sister group, Isotope 217.
Expected by many to continue leading the post-rock brigade into a new fusion with dub and electronics, Tortoise instead turned yet another corner with their third album, TNT. Adding guitarist Jeff Parker to cement their musicianship as well as their connections to Chicago's fertile jazz/avant-garde scene, the band returned with a record of post-modern cool jazz, only slightly informed by the dub, Krautrock, and electronics of Millions Now Living Will Never Die.
Tortoise's third full-length release, TNT, was written and recorded during a 10-month interval in 1997. This longer-than-usual writing/production schedule was purposefully undertaken by the group in the hopes of crafting an expansive, diverse, yet thematically coherent offering.
