Tindersticks

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.
