Biography

Singer-songwriter KT Tunstall‘s stunning new album Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon is her first release in the U.S. on Blue Note Records.

IECM represents both a return to the delicate simplicity of the multi-platinum artist’s early work and an evolution of her sound. IECM’s country-folk tinged undercurrents grew out of KT’s decision to travel to Tucson, Arizona ... Read more in Amazon's KT Tunstall Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Tunstall Works Well in Tiger Suit Stripes October 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Weaving a firm, singular voice through its fast-paced 11 tracks, KT Tunstall makes "Tiger Suit" - her third studio album - her most impressive thus far.

Comparisons to other female artists are almost inevitable, but Tunstall's lyrics - alternately straightforward and impressionistic - and her melodies - pop-savvy but never canned and rarely radio-friendly - demonstrate her vivid originality. This is before considering her adventurous song structures and sonic textures.

The music Tunstall has created for "Tiger Suit" is "art for art's sake." She clearly cares more about self-expression, integrity and musicianship than selling a million records and having hit singles.

She mixes things up with a bit of genre-hopping, introducing shots and squirts of electronic beats, Eastern strings, oddball keyboard, melodic phrasing via whistling, international blues fusion, and more. She takes many risks, and the songs are idiosyncratic to be certain, yet the results are never jarring and the songs rub against each other well.

The downbeat, off-kilter "(Still a) Weirdo" was an odd choice for European lead single - a double-edged affirmation of individuality, it is one of the few compressed, thoroughly reigned in moments on the album - while the sprightly "Fade Like a Shadow" - an ear-pleasing tune, especially when it's urgent chorus of keyboard chords surges upward - is a safer choice for the other side of the Atlantic.

"Difficulty" finds Tunstall singing scattershot-like about an unpredictable lover over an aggressive set of beats that coalesce to form a heady, urgent melodic hook that both underlines and highlights. It is a bit overlong, but it works well and instantly locks itself in.

4.0 out of 5 stars As cosy as her wooly jumper October 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
KT Tunstall claims to have embraced Dance music on her new CD "Tiger Suit" but fear not if you loved the Blues-tinged Rock/Pop of her previous two albums as this isn't a venture into Kylie/Lady Gaga territory.

The ultra catchy "Uummannaq Song" (with nice yay ayes) does feature more synths and beats than usual but the guitar is pushed to the fore and there's even a light Country lilt and an air of familiarity. Similar is "Glamour Puss" (with a nice whistled refrain). The intricately layered "Difficulty" reminds one of Alanis Morisette, while "Fade Like A Shadow" and "Come On, Get In" are bouncy clap-filled Pop like Tunstall's old stuff. "Lost" is a delicate ballad with eerie flourishes, while "Golden Frames" is creepy Bluegrass.

"(Still A) Weirdo" is a lovely little quirky ballad (my favourite), while "Madame Trudeax" is a spoken/sung Blues Rocker. She does tinker with her winning formula a wee bit, but not enough to make her unrecognizable. This is one tiger with a very nice bite.

3.0 out of 5 stars KT Tunstall experiments January 16, 2011
By Zymok
Format:Audio CD
If you enjoy following the development of an artist, this is a must-have album. However, it is not a great album on its own. KT Tunstall is clearly experimenting with different styles and instruments in her work. The result is sometimes compelling but frequently repetitive, and the various elements often don't quite work together. The integration of synthesizer with acoustic guitar is often problematic, as are some of the backing vocals. The overall result is promising, though, and her future albums might very well benefit from this effort.

This is from my music blog, [...]

Until now, Tunstall's discography was mostly comprised of a narrow variety of stripped acoustic and electric pop rock - good in it's own right, but formulaic in its inception. But, a heavy electronica influence has been smeared on KT Tunstall's release this week of Tiger Suit - a divergence from her previous discography, but bound to be an enjoyable direction for a portion of her listeners.

The new LP is a mix of Eurodance electronica roots a la Cascada, tribal elements a la Enya and occasionally, a ghastly poppy glockenspiel a la... I dunno, the A-Teens? (But we won't hold that against her, shes Scottish... they do that sort of stuff, I suppose.)

The first six tracks of the albums are very much created with the aforementioned elements, they reek of Europop - occasionally in a good way, but not always. They have driving beats, lots of electronic elements, and some heavy tribal vocals - especially evident on Uummannaq Song (a track named after a village in Iceland). Complete with a few tracks that feature an abrasive glockenspiel, it's not very digestible, but it is inventive compared to the rest of Tunstall's discography. I have to give credit to a woman who would name an album after a recurring dream:

"Part of the reason for its name is this recurring dream that I've had since I was a kid. There's a tiger outside and I'm with it and stroking it, then I go inside and it's not until I look through the window that I realise `That's mad, I could have been eaten! What was I thinking?'"

We've always liked Tunstall for her quirkiness anyways...

But listening to this album is like watching a child grow through adolescence.
