Tut Tut Is Watching Every Move You Make

Tut Tut are firmly rooted in the Elephant 6 aesthetic (this shit never dies, huh?), and frontman/band mastermind Alex Abros’ vocals suggest many heavy sessions listening to the Magnetic Fields. The flaws in production keep this from sounding hopelessly devoted to their reference points, as well as retain its own appeal. With that said, when Tut Tut manages to get the mix just right, as in “Pins On Your Purse,” the payoff is big–a well-worn groove accented by ukelele and classical guitar plucks, strings as wide and open as the midwestern skies and a catchy chorus that sticks in your head.
