One of my favorite bands from back in the day. Can’t say quite as much for their new stuff. Tortoise has been around since 1990. Groundbreaking in terms of pushing the post rock movement.

Bit of post-rock jazz to start your Thursday. This is Sam Prekop’s first solo record, Self-titled. He’s the front-man from The Sea and Cake, another fantastic Chicago band. And he’s a pretty great painter too, this album cover being one of his.
