Boomkat Product Review:
The magnificent Tunng is back..and this time with a fabulous dual-format EP for Static Caravan featuring a cover version of Bloc Party's 'The Pioneers' stripped of the histrionic herky-jerky guitars and XFM vocals, to be replaced by a very satisfying trickle of electronic folk. The product of Tuung (Mike Lindsay and Sam Genders), 'The Pioneers' exists somewhere between the Beta Band, The Notwist and Nick Drake; a sound they honed to nigh-perfection on their LP 'Mother's Daughter'. Backed up by 'Tale From Black' (a throbbing cohabitation of Ye Olde folk, dusty samples and rigid beats), 'Pool Beneath The Pond' (oak-lined bass, sonorous vocals and skin-itching tronica) and the video for 'Fair Doreen' (CD only, of course), 'The Pioneers' is as satisfying a chunk of rustictronica you're likely to hear. Highly Recommended!
