Afternoon Aural: Portishead

https://youtu.be/KuuFqs7F95A
We’ve waited over a decade for this moment: a new Portishead album! Beth, Geoff and Adrian are back in the mix with their fourth studio album, Third, which takes us down a darker than their previous, self-titled full-length. This track’s called “Machine Gun” and pits gossamer lyrics against sinister beats to produce an intoxicating – if not jarring – mix.

We’ve included “The Rip” after the jump. It’s not as industrial and harks back to Portishead’s historical sound.
