Oh, Wow, what a wonderful discovery this album is. Port-Royal are really hard to categorise. At times you catch a nod to Sigur Ros, Mogwai, 65dos or early Aphex Twin (think Selected Ambient Works 85-92), yet sound nothing like any of them. The nearest direct comparison I can think of is Seefeel's "Quique" album, but again, they don't really sound like them either. Their influences are clear yet they never descend into mere copyism, instead meld them into a really unique sound. Calming yet quietly euphoric soundscapes. I really cannot reccommend this album highly enough.
