A few years years on from their last full length release, Denver’s Tjutjuna return with their sophomore long player, Westerner, just in time for the Spring thaw. Tjutjuna traverse a similar musical terrain to their label brothers Woodsman—droning, transportive sound odysseys, totemic drum circles and shimmering guitars—and will quickly draw you into their primordial trance with the new tune “Moustrap,” available for stream or download below. Tjutjuna is also heading out on the road with Acid Mother’s Temple this Spring, see here for the full list of dates.
Westerner comes out April 30 via Fire Talk.

We first came across the name Tjutjuna when they released their split tour cassette with Woodsman in the spring of 2011. But for unexplainable reasons, the challenging name slipped our minds and may have fallen into the abyss were it not for the keen ears of DGB contributor Johanna Andersson and our good pal Marc “Mike” Norman “Newman.” The group charts a similar neo-kraut course as labelmates Woodsman, with droning, transportive sound odysseys, totemic drum circles and shimmering guitars. Earlier this week, they released their new cassingle, “Desert Song” b/w “Schulze and Shaffner” on Fire Talk and you can now hear/download both tracks below. Also be sure to check out Tjutjuna’s recent Beyond Beyond is Beyond session on East Village Radio.
