Producer Mike Lindsay and singer Sam Genders, aka Tunng
are another band making music that has been lumbered with the tag Folktronica. The "A Tale From Black" 7" released last year and Tunng's first long player This is... Tunng ( Mother's Daughter and Other Songs )
both manage to transcend the dialectic set up by the clumsy Folktronica moniker. A Tale From Black is as eerily foreboding as it is enchantingly beautiful. For once the Folktronica recipe of electronic crackles and pops combined with acoustic guitar and vocal harmonies from Simon and Garfunkel's evil love child results in something that should please both beards and boffins.
