Live From The BBC. We realised we had quite a big bunch of sessions, and on listening back to them felt they sort of represented a nice little journey for us, says band member Phil Winter. There’s quite a range there, from the big full-on ones to the small intimate ones. He’s not wrong: this album takes in intimate acoustic performances for Rob Da Bank to their collaboration with Malian desert blues heroes Tinariwen, Tamatant Tilay. Throughout the album, the performances present the special kind of magic that happens when Tunng play live: the unpredictability of improvisation and the warm sound of myriad instruments dancing around band leader Mike Lindsay’s honeyed tones. Tunng are almost from another time, another place, says BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, for whom a number of the sessions were recorded. When I think of Tunng I think of festivals, of sun, of smiles.

The core members of Tunng, Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay, began their musical partnership composing scores for softcore porn, but their warm sound, eventually dubbed as ‘folktronica’, is now regarded as boundary pushing by music critics who have had difficulty pigeon-holing the sextet (pun not intended).
