In a reluctant (if you know what I mean) addition to the category of favourite bands you've lost touch with (speaking for myself), there's a new album from Tindersticks on the way, The something rain, on City Slang. They're giving away Frozen for free on this link - it's got the trademark rolling bassline, whipcrack guitars, and some great wailing saxophone and trumpet. As usual with this band, it's a fantastic mood piece.
There's also a beautiful, nostalgic film made at their recording studio, backed by the mournful, cello-laden Medicine.
I haven't always been thinking about them but I'm glad they're back.
