4.0 out of 5 stars OUT OF THIS WORLD MUSIC, 1 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Portico Quartet (Audio CD)
Once again The Portico Quartet take us on a Journey of music beyond our spheres,this is their third album followingIslaKnee-Deep in the North Sea and this is impressive stuff,this weaves a spell between electronica and jazz,that one title from the album truly sums them up"Export to hot climates" for they prove here that electronic music does have depth and soul.
The one thing that strikes me about this album is the production,it is supreme and brings all sides of this eclectic bands musical sounds together brilliantly,
There are some more reflective parts to this album,which successfully demonstrate the flexability of the band,"laker boo" being a case in point,with its electronic beat and steel band tone.
There is however one complaint,the vocals on "Sleepless"
they are appallingly daft(in a lily Allan sort of way),but this is only a minor point as the rest of the album is reminiscent of the excellent Nils Petter Molvaer sound.
It is no wonder that this is on Real World for this is inventive and listenable in equal doses.
JACK WYLIE.....SAXOPHONES,ELECTRONICS,PIANO SYNTHESIZERS
DUNCAN BELLAMY.....DRUMS,ELECTRONICS,VOCALS
MILO FITZPATRICK......DOUBLE BASS,ELECTRONICS
KIER VINE.....HANG SYNTHESIZER.
