Hungry Saw


Nottingham miserablists the Tindersticks haven’t offered us any new music since 2003 and, from listening to ‘The Hungry Saw’, you’d think that they’ve spent every day since then in a dark room, rocking backwards and forwards. Not that it sounds particularly scary – you could even actually call it quite lovely in a sort of fuzzy, Radioheadish way – but that can’t disguise the fact that a) it’s about a man who chops up dead people for a living, and b) Stuart Staples sings it in the colour-drained style of a man who’s just seen a murderer’s face in the window.
