Tortoise - Live at Le Guess Who? 2016
Tortoise is easily one of the most influential, experimental outfits of the past 25 years. The Chicago-based collective is widely regarded as one of the spearheads of the post-rock genre. For all of that, Tortoise have more up their shells, mashing styles such as electronic music, dub, jazz and progressive rock into new territories with rollicking exuberance. Tortoise has an unquenchable thirst to create, attracted as much to succinct popcraft as mind-warping experimentalism.
This performance was curated by Wilco for Le Guess Who? 2016.
Recorded by Marc Broer at Le Guess Who? on Sunday, 13 November 2016. Recordings made in cooperation with VPRO / Vrije Geluiden.
