Portal make music very much in the same vein as Yellow 6,
who incidently have a CD out this week as well.So I'll review 'em together.
The Portal 'un is called 'Promise', is on Makemine Music,
and visits the less dark end of the spectrum. A beauty resonates through
these simple, yet lovely ambient sounding songs with pretty female vocals
on some.Yellow 6 are a darker, instrumental proposition as a lot
of you will know & the new CD doesn't stray too far from previously
chartered territory. Sinister, atmospheric sleepy time music made by a
lovely man called Jon.On Makemine too!
