"A whole new audience grew for Tindersticks during their five years in exile this past decade, due to the excellent use of their cinematic sound during moments of Tony Soprano's darkest despair. In their followup to lat year's melodramatic masterpiece 'The Hungry Saw,' haunted singer Stuart Staples and Tindersticks continue to create songs that sound like movies without pictures. Highlights include 'Harmony Around My Table,' 'Black Smoke' (a well chosen first single) and even 'Peanuts', a duet between staples and Canadian chanteuse Mary Margaret O'Hara that would end up a bad joke between a pair of lesser singers. They've been around almost twenty years now, so if you've never heard Tindersticks, start here and work yer way back. You'll not regret it" ("Stripwax," New Haven Advocate, 2/18/10, p. 37).
