“The history of cinema has been replete with successful partnerships between director and composer: Hitchcock and Herrmann; Spielberg and Williams, Lynch and Badalamenti. There’s even a Wikipedia page devoted to such collaborations. Yet one fellowship overlooked by the Wiki league is that between fearless French cinematic impressionist Denis and her loyal band of care-worn Nottingham craftsmen. Since a chance meeting in Paris in 1995 Tindersticks have been at Denis’ service, writing close-miked chamber soundtracks of rain-pattered mystery and soft-voiced melancholy. Collected together, the fear might have been that the Tindersticks sound would be found wanting. Yet from 1996’s Nenette et Boni to 2009’s White Material here is a sound in evolution, yet always pulsing with the same intimate warmth as Denis’ films.”
MOJO – 5/5 STARS
“Fine work lies within. Staples’ score for 2004’s L’Intrus builds tension with jazzy percussion and metallic echo-soaked guitar, while 2009’s White Material is sombre and stately, all droning accordians and wandering flute.”
UNCUT – 4/5 STARS
“The score for L’Intrus is a repeated loop of clattering percussion, plucked guitar and wailing trumpet. This seductive musical fragment complements the movie’s dream of a paradise that beckons and remains as elusive as a mirage”
“The ominously beautiful title song by Tindersticks [‘Trouble Every Day’] establishes a tone of solemn lyricism…”
