Tuesday Tunes: Portishead

My adoration for Portishead is one that has spanned over a few decades. They’ve gotten me through the good times, the bad times, and the really bad times. I remember when I started listening to them at the young age of 12, it was like they opened this whole new world of music for me. Portishead is smoking weed and laying in your bed music. Portishead is drinking a bottle of wine in the bathtub after your heart is broken and tears are streaming down your face music. Portishead is unwinding after a long day of work music. There really isn’t a situation that wouldn’t be improved by throwing a little Portishead on the record player. But, to describe the Portishead sound in detail and musical terms would be ruining it for those who have never given it a listen. So, if you are one of those people, I urge you to drop everything and push play. Immediately. I promise, you’ll thank me for the rest of your life.

P.S. – “Glory Box” is my favorite song. It will probably rip your heart out like it does mine. Good luck.

Tuesday Tunes: Astronautalis

To be honest, I’ve got a difficult time with listening to new music. Terrible, I know. (Especially since I work within the music industry) But, I’m totally trying to be better about it, and lately I’ve been discovering lots of great stuff I probably wouldn’t have listened to otherwise. And usually when I find something new and great, I get completely sucked in and can’t shut it off.

Well, currently that is Astronautalis.

I’ve always been a fan of hip hop, and although Astronautalis is put into that genre, his sound is so much more than that. It moves all around the musical spectrum, and is somewhat indescribable. So, instead of me trying to put words to his sound, how about you just do yourself a favor and listen below.

P.S. – he’s not so bad to look at either, right ladies? hahahha.
