There are times when an allegedly “full length” album is so brief that it feels more like a glorified EP, and then there are times when an EP is so lengthy or ambitious that tagging on the “EP” bit feels like an unintended slight. Tartufi‘s new The Goodwill of the Scar EP may be one of those latter cases, as the 12″ (out this month on Southern Records) features a single, twenty-six minute long track entitled “The Butterless Man,” which was recorded with Tim Green at Louder Studios late last year. Our own Fenny Kuo shot a three-part series on the making of the new record. Part one is above, with the other two after the fold.
Tartufi celebrates the new release with a show at Bottom of the Hill on Monday (9:30pm, $12, 21+), where they’ll be supporting the terrific Danish band Efterklang. VIR opens the show.
Also, remember how we were helping Tartufi give away Nests of Waves and Wire one song at a time? We’re still doing that, so here’s “Dot Dash”:
As a reminder, you can purchase the complete Nests of Waves and Wire from Southern, as well as Amazon and iTunes.
