September 10, 2019 – For their first album in three years, Tindersticks’ Stuart Staples felt the band needed to do something different. Eschewing their typically lengthy recording process, for new album No Treasure but Hope, out November 15th on City Slang, the band recorded the album in five days and had a mastered album in just over a month. “Five weeks from the first notes recorded to the mastering,” marvels Staples, reflecting on a stretch that included acoustic rehearsals around a piano, six days playing live in a Paris studio and one day in London to record strings/brass. Rich in intuitive warmth, lush melodies and an inquisitive spirit, it’s an album that casts a fresh light on Tindersticks’ core qualities, bathed in the glow of a band intent on rediscovering what they can do.

“The last two albums were gradually built to a point of being finished in our studio from moments of playing and recording together,” says Staples. “When we figured out how to present the songs live, different things happened to them. This time, we wanted to reverse that – to do something that was about being committed to a song together in a moment.” 

That climate enabled these five most unselfish of players to really listen to one another: witness album opener ‘For the Beauty’, which seems to hover in the spaces between Dan McKinna’s tender piano, Neil Fraser’s milky guitar, Earl Harvin’s brushed drums and Staples’ soulful confessions.

In their review of Tindersticks’ last album, 2016’s The Waiting Room, Pitchfork said “Tindersticks have never released a bad album,” and No Treasure but Hope very much continues that nearly three decade long streak. 

Tindersticks will begin a five-month long European tour in January. In the middle of that tour, the band will take a trip to the U.S. to make their first East Coast appearance in 10 years with a show at Murmrr in Brooklyn, NY on April 1st.
