Portishead Plays "Glory Box"

Listen to this track by scene-solidifying Bristolian trip-hop trio Portishead. It’s “Glory Box”, the closing track to their Mercury Prize-winning 1994 album Dummy. That release set the music press alight with praise even before the band cinched the prize, of course. 765 more words

SOS (ABBA cover by Portishead)

This is my second all-time favourite ABBA song. And it is a cover by Portishead. This is all manners of awesome. I love how Portishead really got into the message of the lyrics and re-positioned the music to fit the meaning of the lyrics. 61 more words
