Tortoise have been expanding the definition of rock music for almost 30
years, nodding to dub, rock, jazz, electronica and minimalism
throughout its revered and influential discography. The resulting
sounds have always been distinctly, even stubbornly, their own. 

Rhythms, Resolutions & Clusters has not been available on LP since it
was released in 1995. The record ushered in a late 90’s remix
craze, and launched a 12” series of remixes by a wide range of artists.
This new  re-press for our 30th Anniversary is a Tortoise
record unlike any other, as Tortoise turned their iconic early songs
over to their friends to play with. We love the sense of community & unlimited creativity that this record represents!

Remixes include mixes by Steve Albini, Jim O’Rourke, Mike Watt
(Minutemen), Brad Wood (Liz Phair), and Rick Brown (75 Dollar
Bill). Original songs recorded by Dan Bitney, Bundy K Brown, John
Herndon, John McEntire, and Douglas McCombs.
