Members of Tortoise announce ‘Bumps’ Side Project

From Pitchfork: In a bit of fresh news from the Tortoise camp, John McEntire, Dan Bitney and, Johnny Herndon are releasing a record of percussion and samples on the always-real Stones Throw Records under the moniker “Bumps.” The release which will come out on CD and (of course) LP is due June 19th.

This move comes as a welcome spin from Tortoise who have, in my opinion, been ignoring their electronic/remix side since the double remix 12″s that came out during TNT. It seemed that the guys in Tortoise were regularly dabbling in this arena– either having others remix Tortoise songs, or doing remixes themselves for Yo La Tengo and McEntire’s Tortoise remix of Coldcut’s More Beats and Pieces. and Herndon’s “A Grape Dope” side project.
