With band leader Stuart A. Staples and co-founders David Boulter and
Neil Fraser forming a core trio of original members, Tindersticks definitively
returned to form in 2008 following a 5-year hiatus. Two critically acclaimed
albums later, the band has a new record, The Something Rain, out Feb. 21
on Constellation.

Details from the label: The new album brims and bristles
with canny narrative thrust. Slinky, supple compositions are spiked with plenty
of barbed edges and sparkling fizz. Right out of 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 song cycle of
rolling, at times rollicking, and always inimitably Tinderstickian takes on
smoky Northern Soul.
