Tortoise to Release Beacons of Ancestorship in June

It’s been five years since the last Tortoise album, but they’ll return on June 23 with Beacons of Ancestorship (Thrill Jockey). Typical for the band, the new record is supposed to reference “techno, punk, electro, lo-fi noise, cut-up beats, heavily processed synths, and mournful, elegiac dirges.” That’s a mouthful, but I believe it.

The tracklist:
01. High Class Slim Came Floatin’ In
02. Prepare Your Coffin
03. Northern Something
04. Gigantes
05. Penumbra
06. Yinxianghechengqi
07. The Fall Of Seven Diamonds Plus One
08. Minors
09. Monument Six One Thousand
10. de Chelly
11. Charteroak Foundation
