With the release of These Factory Days, San Francisco's TARTUFI have further advanced upon their layered spectrum of sound. Welcoming good friend Ben Thorne (Low Red Land, Minot) into the band to take over the role of bass player, TARTUFI is now a fully realized machine. Whereas before Angel and Gorman preferred the whirlwind approach, favoring a systematic shock to the senses - with the addition of Thorne the band is able to utilize time and space to elicit an overall sense of complete synchronicity and total fluidity. If you thought you were in a strange alien river before then best grab a paddle because this river flows into the sea of sonic accord. TARTUFI took over a year and a half to track and mix These Factory Days, once again with the aid of Tim Green (Melvins, Howlin Rain, Joanna Newsom, Fresh & Onlys) at Louder Studios and The Hangar, and also with Scott McDowell at Hyde Street. The result is a band fully settled within their sound, secure amongst an ocean of interlocking counterweights, where you are at once upon the bright surface and walking the cavernous depths. TARTUFI further push the boundaries of sonic sameness and classic structure to evoke an overall sense of movement and progression. Pop songs be damned - TARTUFI is a country of sound.
