Itâ€™s All Around You is Tortoiseâ€™s fifth album, originally released in 2004. This re-issue is pressed on high quality virgin vinyl and packaged in a jacket and inner sleeve both featuring spot UV printing and a free download card. Written largely in the studio, Itâ€™s All Around You was crafted over the course of a full year, and allowed Tortoise the use of John McEntireâ€™s Soma Electronic Music Studios in serving not just as a state-of-the art recording facility, but as a compositional tool as well. It took months of continuous writing, recording, tinkering, mixing, and perfecting to bring Itâ€™s All Around You to itâ€™s finalized state. The results of this process are clear in the lush, orchestrated tones, intricate melodies, and densely elaborate rhythms.
