As part of Thrill Jockey's 20th Anniversary vinyl re-issue campaign here's the very first Tortoise album from 1994!

Sold out on vinyl for many years this 2012 edition has been remastered to vinyl by Roger Seibel.

Tortoise's self-titled debut incorporates many musical styles and influences and combines them into one very distinct sound. So distinct that sometime after the release of this record they became recognized as the leaders of a new musical movement. Tortoise exploits the recording studio, in that they utilize the recording process as a compositional tool or "sixth member", thus creating a boundless parameter in which to create music. Recorded at Idful Studios by John McEntire.
