Description

Formed in 2001, San Francisco’s TARTUFI released three albums as a power-pop trio, Westward Onward (Thread Records- 2002), So We Are Alive (Thread Records – 2004), and Trouble (Acuarela – 2005), and garnered heaps of press and “Best of…”s before members Lynne Angel and Brian Gorman decided switch gears and head in a new direction. In 2006, having just played a South by Southwest showcase and with an album at #75 on CMJ charts, the now duo had much to prove and an eager desire to fulfill their like-minded sonic vision.

Ditching their previous material and hitting the studio armed with bigger amplifiers and modified loop stations; Angel and Gorman began developing their new sound. In 3 months time, the reinvented band had written and recorded Us Upon Buildings Upon Us (2006- Thread Records) with the help of Tim Green (Joanna Newsom, Melvins, Monotonix) in the engineer’s seat.
