Tortoise "High Class Slim Came Floatin In"

Clocking in at just over eight minutes, this track gives us a taste of what Tortoise has in store for its sixth full-length, Beacons of Ancestorship. Post-rock and freeform, jazzed-out electronics have always formed the basis of the band’s music, and here they employ those styles with a mish-mash of stop-and-start guitar riffs, keyboards that crescendo up and down, and a hearty bassline that bubbles underneath. By all accounts, the musical trajectory on this track seems to have a mind of its own.

Beacons of Ancestorship is out in June.
