Tindersticks — Across Six Leap Years
◊  Acclaimed English sextet whose melancholy, obtuse songwriting and the baritone vocals of Stuart Staples made them indie darlings during the '90s.
◊  Wrap your ears round the band's anniversary album.
◊  "A meandering, often inspiring career from a meandering, often inspiring band, Tindersticks' catalogue contains many golden moments. Yet there are areas which the band feel are unrealised, songs which never quite satisfied their muse." — ROBIN MURRAY

Musical style:
◊  Their sound is characterised by orchestral backing, lounge jazz, and soul; the orchestrations of multi-instrumentalist Dickon Hinchliffe (who left the band in 2006) and the baritone of lead vocalist Stuart A. Staples are the band's hallmarks. Tindersticks augment their instrumentation with Rhodes piano, glockenspiel, vibraphone, violin, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, bassoon, Hammond organ, and many more.

Description from label:
◊  2013 is a landmark year for Tindersticks who turn 21 this year. In this time they have recorded nine studio albums, composed music for films, museums, fashion shows and installations, have toured the world, played with various orchestras, dueted and collaborated with many great singers and musicians, lost their desire, split up, rearranged, reformed, re-kindled their musical passion and in 2012 made what they, and many critics consider to be one of their finest albums The Something Rain.
◊  Tindersticks wanted to mark this special anniversary year in some way, to connect this history with what they have become. After much discussion they entered the legendary Studio 2 at Abbey Road and from 6th – 9th April 2013 recorded Across six leap years, their 10th studio album; 10 new versions of songs from throughout their history. Across the years some songs were “lost along the way”. For one reason or another they never became how they were imagined to be in their recorded form…until now. Across six leap years brings together these previously unrealised tracks as part celebration, part reinvention.
◊  "‘Recording these songs again was not so much about righting past mistakes or inadequacies, but more about the power of now. Something that’s been growing since the film shows, something that made us recognise how we feel now, and connecting that to our past feel important.
◊  Walking up to Abbey Road, it could easily have overcome us. But it had nothing to do with its past. We weren’t there to take photos on the crossing. I didn’t think about playing the Lady Madonna piano. I’d like to say it was just another studio, but sadly, that’s not true anymore. It’s one of the only studios of its kind left. And it wasn’t about our past either. These songs feel like cover versions. Someone else’s music we feel we had something new to bring to. Abbey Road could have been a big slap on the back. Or a big punch in the face. But it felt natural. It’s where we should be. It’s important that we got here and to give ourselves some credit. It’s also important to give these songs a new life.
◊  And so much more fun than a greatest hits album. 21 years of tindersticks. This isn’t a selected highlights. It just shows how far we’ve come.’  — David Boulter, 2013
In french:
◊  Il s'agit en fait d'une relecture d'une dizaine de titres choisis dans le répertoire du groupe et pas les plus connus... Pourles fans du groupe, essentiellement.

Review by Thom JurekRating: ***
◊  Tindersticks celebrate their 21st anniversary with ten tracks from their catalog re-recorded at Abbey Road. Half of them date from the previous century; two are pre-split, and only one, the closer "What Are You Fighting For," is post; it appeared as a Record Store Day single. "If You're Looking for a Way Out," a cover of their cover of an Odyssey track that appeared on Simple Pleasure, is looser, more fluid, and more transparent in its connection to '70s-era, East Coast — i.e. Philly — soul. "Sleepy Song," whose first version is from their second album, is performed here with far more tension and drama. The spirit of restraint in its original gives way and the roiling menace underneath is allowed to surface and breathe as the song's dynamic expands. "Say Goodbye to the City," from Waiting for the Moon, is louder and marginally more uptempo, but the increased drama via the bleating trumpet fills and solo, and the strident female backing chorus coming from the pocket, elevate it. Tindersticks see this anniversary celebration as a reflection of who they are as a band now, rather than merely as a reflection of their past. (www.allmusic.com)
