The unclassifiable and unmistakable greats in Tortoise return with The Catastrophist, their new album and first in seven years. The band, which mixes elements of post-rock, jazz, krautrock, electronic influences, and a seemingly endless array of genres, is streaming the first track to emerge from the new release, “Gesceap,” below. Look for the LP on January 22 via Thrill Jockey.

Tortoise will also hit the road for a string of gigs in the new year. Don’t miss them.
