Tunng – ‘Turbines’

A decade in the subtly skewed, mildly mind-bending folk-pop game, Tunng have progressed from English eccentrica draped in wilful weirdness to a more inclusive, warm pastoral songcraft. Exciting, huh? Well, while Mike Lindsay and crew will never have you hanging on to your hat with the likes of ‘So Far From Here’ with its mournful twang and rattle and sudden pockets
of sproinging African rhythms, or the space-burbling psych wash of the seriously misnomered ‘Heavy Rock Warning’, their fifth album (strung together by a loose concept about an imagined village you needn’t worry about) is as softly satisfying as a bobbly old jumper. One with thumbholes.
