World Cafe Live: The Ting Tings In Concert
Originally published on Fri April 13, 2012 2:53 pm
When The Ting Tings' debut album We Started Nothing made waves in 2008, Jules DeMartino and Katie White quickly became reluctant stars. Their quest to record an honest follow-up in East Berlin ended with six scrapped tracks, but a change of scenery in Spain did the trick. Sounds From Nowheresville demonstrates the duo's expansive new palette, but also retains its intuitive grooves, full of synthesizer riffs and revitalized energy.
