As beautiful as a stark wintry Sunday afternoon, Tindersticks's music is soulful, haunting and ever so sad. With deep languid vocals, luscious strings and classical orchestration, it's no wonder they've been working on movie soundtracks recently. Rather more surprising was their commission to create the music for the Louis Vuitton summer collection in Paris. After a successful tour back in 2008 and now brimming with ideas, the band have found new optimism and direction, reflected in the album Falling Down A Mountain. If you like your music glum, go see.
