"Djed" by Tortoise

I used to work at a coffeshop when I was in college and one day a co-worker brought in Millions Now Living Will Never Die. I was transfixed. This, the first track on the album weighs in at just over 20 minutes and acts as a sort of skeleton key to the rest of the album.  To me this is the high watermark of 90s post-rock. If I ever die I want this played at my funeral.


Biography:

I grew up in Texas and live in Wrocław, Poland. I've published two chapbooks with Greying Ghost Press (No Rainbow and Black Box) and an experimental novella called The Sugar Numbers with Black Scat Press. My latest book of short stories entitled Gross in Feather, Loud in Voice is available from Dostoyevsky Wannabe.
