about

Electronica, Electric guitar. Drum Beats. It has been called Alt-Blues. It has been called weird (in a good way!). It's about work, relationships, fatherhood and more....

Now the bass hovering on the event horizon of feedback and the fat riff molesting sparse percussion in a mix that seems acres wide is called “Suited Slave” and the pouting drawl being chased by mini-guitar bursts is called “Vacuous”, only it's not. This shit is weird and very cool….
Unpeeled Magazine

….what a bountiful collection they are…. Tuttle masters the use of sparse arrangement to underpin his musings on life in the rat-race, an empty-headed woman, recent fatherhood and marriage.... Both ‘Vacuous' and ‘Struck Dumb' remind me of Howard Devoto/Magazine; particularly the latter track where Tuttle refreshingly ditches the sentimental bulls**t that artists step into when a baby appears, opting instead for the stark but touching realisation that nothing really prepares you for this
Whisperin’ & Hollerin’
