Tindersticks — The Waiting Room (Lucky Dog/City Slang)
It would be fair to think you would know
what to expect from a Tindersticks album in 2016; at least some of the band
have been playing together since around 1991, although like any band of that
vintage still making new records in 2016 they’ve had some changes and breaks
during that time (particularly singer Stuart Staples going solo for a while,
and half of the original six-person lineup leaving in 2006). Unlike some of
their contemporaries, however, Tindersticks have neither avoided the
possibilities for change that different personnel can bring, nor have they
unceremoniously flung their old strengths over the side. Throughout their
recent years the band have proven surprisingly adept at honoring both the old
and new sides of their music, and with The Waiting Room they’ve used
that approach to make their best album in years.
Before now I hadn’t ever uploaded my own music on Tumblr. It’s kinda funny how anxious I am about it… I’ve never met any of you before!
But anyways, I wrote this song a while back (maybe a month or so) and finally decided to get it recorded last weekend. It had been a while, so I was a little rusty.. but I think it turned out pretty decent overall!
And I hope you enjoy it :) I’ll gladly accept any feedback you’re willing to give me.. but please be gentle!
So the only way that I can currently get into the church to practise the organ is by using a screwdriver to turn the key to open the door.. Also, there is a sticky key and it’s absolutely freezing in there.. But I still love playing the organ 💕
