portishead - biscuit


Sad to say, I have ignored Portishead’s music for decades. I had no idea what kind of music they made, and I didn’t care. People would say to me, “Hey man, you like trip-hop, right? You should give Portishead a shot!” So I didn’t know what I’d been missing until last week when this song, Biscuit (off their 1994 album Dummy), played randomly on Pandora. They don’t just do trip-hop; nearly everything you hear in their music is experimental. It’s down tempo, its art rock, and in some places its jazz and cabaret. In other words, it’s right up my alley. Give these Brits a shot and hit play; don’t put their music off for ages like I did.
