Often described as 'the best band you'll never know', the Tindersticks are back with another sideways glance at alternative music.
Falling Down A Mountain unfortunately stumbles short of what the band have produced with past efforts. It does however fair better than their last outing The Hungry Saw which clearly felt like they had had too much time off beforehand!
The opening and title track is a slightly jazzed up affair which often feels like it's not going in any direction at all. It's a strange entree, which left me wondering is this what to expect from things to come? Thankfully not, as it picks itself up with one of the albums best songs Harmony Around My Table, a joyful whimsical tune . However the obligatory duet Peanuts (with special guest) struggles to carry the brief momentum.
Eventually, with some welcome, and little relief we get to the second half of the album which leaves the arty side behind and on a whole does come close to who the Tindersticks really are. Miserable tales and deep swooning with sometimes upbeat melodies and pretty strings. At last, we find ourselves in their familiar territory, and I don't want to leave.
But when Falling Down A Mountain finally comes to an end, it may not be considered the most memorable record by Tindersticks. But I'll happily take it anyway.
