Portico Quartet
Memory Streams

Former Mercury Prize nominees Portico Quartet deliver their fifth studio album. While the London band have always strived to differentiate their sound from record to record, 'Memory Streams' may represent the most dramatic sonic shift yet, embracing ambient and electronic influences into their minimalistic jazz approach. 

Portico Quartet

The salubrious sounds of Portico Quartet are presented in two different ways here. LP 1 is a live recording focussing on recent material performed in the larger venues to which the band now frequent. LP 2 expands on a different aspect of their sound by virtue of a series of remixes, including takes from Luke Abbott and Sbtrkt. Double wax from Real World Records.

Portico Quartet
Untitled (AITAOA #2)

London's Portico Quartet, here with 'Untitled, Art in the Age of Automation #2', weave together jazz, electronica, ambient and minimalism in an addictive sound that journeys through textures, acoustic arrangements and grooving, widescreen minimalism. A hard-hitting record that's well worth the listen.

Art in the Age of Automation

Rejoice! The trio that was once Portico have realised that their previous iteration sucked and have added the 'Quartet' again as well as past member Keir Vine on the hang. What's more, they've also done a U-turn on the sound of last album Living Fields, returning to the electronica / jazz fusion that they struck gold with on their 2012 self-titled.
