Tindersticks – No Treasure But Hope
Three years since their last album proper, singer Stuart Staples decided Tindersticks’ return called for something special. “I felt we needed to be able to make something meaningful,” he says. No Tindersticks album has lacked meaning, of course, but these mavens of intimate, ex- pansive mood song dig deep and diversify beautifully on No Treasure but Hope. Rich in intui- tive warmth, lush melodies and an inquisitive spirit, it’s an album that casts a fresh light on Tin- dersticks’ core qualities, bathed in the glow of a band intent on rediscovering what they can do.
