A Massive LP Release from Tintoretto

A brand-new album release from Tintoretto gives me these amazing little hints of nostalgia because they can blend in certain soundscapes and genres so incredibly well and some of those include a real underground late '90s emotionally driven alternative rock feel and this aesthetic is so nailed that it's instantly infectious.

The self-titled Tintoretto LP is vast in its tonality so, you have this almost gigantic and slightly ambient undertone to these tracks but what gets you is this amazing guitar work and drumming because the time signatures change and give you surprises around the corners itself have these kinds of mathy undertones that are blended in with a garage rock approach in terms of the riffs.

There's just something about guitar sounds that are tight but a bit loose at the same time because those are the kinds of things that let them feel alive and breathing.

The tracks are emotionally driven as I mentioned earlier, and the vocals expressed that perfectly because you have this sort of wailing, in a way, that hits with touches of aggression in its underbelly but is delivered with this sort of animated approach so that you can feel that it's all coming from someplace genuine.

With this, you have a bit of a youthful cry out and that's what makes everything authentic.

At times you can pick up on some gritty fuzz undertones and the energy on the record is incredible.

Some of the songs or all of the songs honestly, feel like they were recorded live-on-the-floor at least in part and the players are feeding off of each other's energies the entire time and that's what gives the song such an impactful and alive approach.

Even if I'm wrong about the whole live-on-the-floor aspect, listening to this record makes you want to go see them perform live in your face because if the energy is captured on record this well, then seeing them live must be amazing.

Certain tracks are heavier than others and other tracks are more personal but all in all you have an album that you really can't miss a single track because if you do then you're not getting the full spectrum of what the album has to offer.

It's almost as if some of these tracks connect to each other like this was a concept record of sorts.

This is the kind of record that you listen to from beginning to end and when you do that, you are pulled away from your surroundings and put in a different place altogether.

This band put a lot into the album and just making it feel in the moment so this is a record that not only gives me those bits of nostalgia from those classic underground '90s heavy rock bands, but it also adds new attitudes, new vivaciousness, and an intensity that makes a lot of these songs just feel immense.

In reality, although this is a heavy record, it's gracefully performed and there's just this certain breed of honesty that's delivered throughout the whole thing.

It's that personality and that character that's delivered is what you get attached to while listening to this album.

If you listen to the whole thing through like I suggested, then when it's over you'll have to reacclimate yourself back to reality again.

There's something about this record that's addicting and there are certain tracks that stay with you a lot of the time, especially from either vocal or guitar hooks and the only way to satiate that is to listen to them again.

This was a very lush, full-bodied record that gave a lot.

It's certainly had a great effect on me so I suggest listening to this full album, and maybe doing it with headphones so you can soak in everything that's happening during these tracks and see how it affects you.
