Who Rocks Best?
On 25th March (26th in the US) we will be releasing Tartufi's third release for Southern, These Factory Days. Shortly after recording and touring The Goodwill Of The Scar, the duo of Lynne Angel and Brian Gorman became a trio
How excited are we?
the lovely San Francisco trio better known as Tartufi are about to embark on a series of US tour dates as of this Saturday to bring their unique blend of blissful loops and pop-rock tendencies to the west coast.
The wonderful Tartufi, aka two of Southern's most favourite people in the whole world, have packed themselves up and are making their way down the West Coast of the USA this month. Full dates are below, if you live in or near to one of these towns, we strongly suggest you get down to one of the shows for a serious mind-bending!
What have people been saying about Tartufi?
“This is huge. Tartufi are two but sound like twelve. Gorman must have arms like continents, and the way Angel loops her vocals makes it seem like three personalities are battling it our for possession of her throat, hold on to your brains."-NME
"A dizzying construct of lunatic prettiness. It all flows together, like a fantastical alien river." - Rocksound 8 out of 10 stars
"Tartufi build intricate loops of organic alt rock and lay freak folk riffs over clattering campfire rhythms. The effect is rapturous, strident." - PLAN B
So, there! To get a glimpse of what you might expect, check the video Tour Diary that they made last time they headed out across the States in 2009. (It's down there under the tour dates, Jack.)
