Biography

Tunng: always different, always the same. The band we meet, gathered in a cosy room in a Dutch barge on the Thames, are here to talk about a record that is dramatically different to any of their previous three. It's got a new lyricist and a new lead vocalist. It's got drums. It's got synthesizers. It's got massed singalong choruses. It's got guitar solos. And rather ... Read more in Amazon's Tunng Store

Product Description

Product Description

Tunng; Edgy yet irresistible, songs that slide under your skin or clamber softly into your ear whilst you sleep. Even the very name is designed to confound. "it must go into peoples heads, scramble and come out wrong... it brings out the dyslexic in all of us."

"People Folk" lounges gently over a pagan beat, like the Beta band lost in the Congo; "Fair Doreen" melds scratchy electronica with a pastoral, quintessentially English dynamic.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's no Excuse for not buying this! 5 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
I got this album because it kept appearing on my reccomendations page, and frankly, it's the best thing Amazon ever let me know about.
The blend of English folk and gentle electronica could become a disastrously psychadelic noise-cocktail in some hands, but Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay have managed their material so skillfully that labels like "folkatronica" or "indie-electronica" just don't encapsulate what you're listening to. The solid, dark mood of the whole album is Earthy and tightly-arranged and the word "psychadelic" just doesn't apply.
Samples are handled with real sensitivity and intelligence, as in the female vocal with piano that drifts over the guitar chords in "Tale from Black;" or even the sample used in the opening track. Other, more traditional arrangements, such as "Fair Doreen" find the pair singing in luscious harmonies.
This album feels like it builds more on the country-based, Wicker-man, pagan aspect of folk, and not on the loosely arranged, joyful ambience of folk music of the Incredible-String-Band variety. The arrangements are well organised, rhythmically, and the electronic music/acoustic folk blending is seamless. Electronic sounds become another interesting musical texture in what are very original, and interesting folk-inspired arrangements.
Comparisons to four tet are inevitable for tracks like "out the window with the window," which has quite a lot of chiming, glitchy, delicate four-tet-esque qualities; but the similarities end there. Lyrical compositions and acoustic instruments prevail with Tunng, whereas four tet tends to go more in for pure acousto-electric ambience.
If you like efterklang, four tet, Colleen, or even Bjork'e Vespertine, you will enjoy this well-crafted acoustoelectric gem. Enjoy! I really can't reccommend this to you highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost There 10 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
A friend bought this album for me. On first listen, I wasn't that impressed; but as time went on, I became more and more seduced by the interesting sonorities expressed through the ethereal electronica present on the album. This album certainly has its high points, and you get the impression that the pair behind it know this. Their blend of warm acoustic folk music with cold, desolate blips and beeps is incredibly well-realised; unfortunately, it's not without its downfalls.
The main thing that lets this album down, is the fact that there aren't enough ideas within tracks. 'Suprise Me 44' has a brilliantly addictive guitar riff that really draws you in for the first few listens... however, after that, there really isn't much to listen out for. Nearly all of the songs fail because of this pattern - there will be some exquisite ideas there, but there simply won't be enough of them. And with this lack of ideas stretched over only 10 tracks, the album doesn't sustain too many listens.
That said, what Tunng do, they do well. The haunting guitar riffs in 'Out The Window...', and 'Beautiful and Light', the sound manipulation in 'Kinky Vans', and the great use of sampling in 'Tales From The Black', all make for beautiful pieces of music. This is a fabulous, original introductory album, and I really cannot wait to hear what else this band do in the future. I strongly recommend it.

Emerging from the British Nu-Folk scene, Tunng revitalise a musical genre many either dismiss as outmoded and twee, or claim cannot be bettered since its 70s heyday of fragile, acoustic angst a la Nick Drake. And whilst Pause era Four-Tet may serve as a useful reference point, this isn't so much Folktronica as it is Laptop Folk. The songs and the acoustic instrumentation come first, underpinned by subtle electronic treatments. And the tunes are truly infectious- I just can't keep myself from playing them again and again. This music satisfies in me both the afficionado of contemporary electronica as well as the lover of good old-fashioned folk rock (like John Martyn's 1973 classic 'Solid Air'). This album is basically a collection of previously released 12" singles and has just received a US release. Meanwhile, back in the UK, now signed to Full Time Hobby, Tunng have released their equally awesome new album `Comments of The Inner Chorus', and then in 2007 `Good Arrows'. A favourite for several years now, I'm eager for anything else Sam Genders or Mike Lindsay might be involved with, so am eagerly anticipating release of the album by `The Accidental' (featuring Tunng man Sam).
