from their french site:
“Description
Après plus de 20 ans de carrière, Tindersticks évolue toujours dans un clair-obscur au charme suranné que l’atmosphère mélancolique et vénéneuse de son 9ème album ne viendra pas démentir. Entre folk spectral, orchestrations élégiaques et tentations d’aller vers une légèreté soul, le bateau a pourtant souvent tangué. Après Waiting For The Moon en 2003, le chanteur Stuart Staples – émigré en France, dans la Creuse – avait tenté l’aventure en mode solitaire. C’était pour mieux tout reconstruire et revenir aux affaires collectives en 2008, avec le remarquable The Hungry Saw qui inaugurait une sorte de deuxième jeunesse pour le groupe.

Entre temps, les Anglais s’étaient aussi fait l’auteur des bandes originales des films de Claire Denis (de Nénette & Boni à White Material), récemment rééditée en coffret, avant qu’une belle alliance entre City Slang et Constellation décide d’accueillir les nouvelles productions d’un groupe dont la géométrie, recentrée autour de ses trois membres fondateurs, ne cesse de varier.

The Something Rain (à découvrir par là) sonne à première écoute un peu plus électrique et rapide que ses prédécesseurs, et apparaît comme une étape supplémentaire dans la mue d’un groupe qui ne cesse d’habiller différemment sa mélancolie douce-amère. Les débuts furent très orchestraux, ici les armes sont plus variées : on y entend ici une boite à rythme vintage, du spoken word ou encore une touche d’un funk délicat et discret.

Une chose demeure : Stuart et ses petits amis font toujours dans la dentelle majestueuse. Et, on l’espère, dans les prestations scéniques bouleversantes.”

Tindersticks new album details – “The Something Rain” (Setlist & Video & Coverartwork)

See here for full details:
http://www.scdistribution.com/resources/cst086.pdf

“The Something Rain brims and bristles with canny narrative thrust. Slinky, supple compositions are spiked with plenty of barbed edges and sparkling fizz. Right out the gate, album opener “Chocolate” features David Boulter’s sequel to the spoken-word classic “My Sister” from Tindersticks’ 1995 eponymous release. Boulter narrates the story while the band works up a brilliant, brewing crescendo, abetted by the swirling horns of long-time collaborator Terry Edwards. This is indeed a new Tindersticks classic – edgier, more exuberant and more expansive – that spurs The Something Rain into a set of rolling, at times rollicking, and always inimitably Tinderstickian takes on smoky Northern Soul.”

“For this special event, fellow Tindersticks members David Boulter, Neil Fraser, Dan KcKinna and Earl Harvin join Staples, augmented by additional musicians on strings and brass. The full ensemble will do dramatic justice to Denis’s visionary cinema through gorgeously dark-hued music that blends subtle guitar strumming and delicate violin arpeggios with otherworldly percussion and atmospheric washes of symphonic color over which Staples croons in his inimitable baritone. “Working with Claire makes us shift our vision,” Staples has said. “We come out the other end of it and we always feel kind of changed.””
