Portishead – We Carry On (Live, ATP 2007)

I’ve yet to decide which track is my favorite on the new Portishead LP, but “We Carry On” certainly ranks near the top.  Beth’s voice!  The Neu!-ish motorik rhythm!!  That incredible guitar noize!!!  Axl’s Roses, Dr. Pepper?  Shoulda put your money where the REAL comeback is.

Portishead – Machine Gun (Video)

I was 13 when I first saw Beth Gibbons inexplicably hovering in a city street.  On April 29th Portishead are finally back.  Here’s the new video that isn’t a Jimi Hendrix cover.  This blog is so two days ago.
