Tindersticks - The Waiting Room

Tindersticks' 10th LP is a gift that keeps on giving.

The more I listen to it, the more I feel at home, soothed by its soft & delicate rythmic background, enlightened by its colourful horns. As for the feeling of gravity, Stuart Staples' inimitable nagging singing is at its best, not to mention the precious help from the late Lhasa de Sela and Savages' Jhenny Beth on a couple of tracks. 

A few ultra smooth electro touches here and there, a superb afrobeat-inspired moment ("Help Yourself"), this "indie/world" masterpiece has me thinking of some productions by favorite "outside-of-the-box", horns-friendly indie band, Broken Social Scene. I bet you'll love get stuck in this Waiting Room.
