Art in the Age of Automation (Clear Vinyl)
Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet has always been an impossible band to pin down. Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of three studio albums, from their 2007 breakthrough Knee-Deep in the North Sea and 2010 John Leckie produced Isla, to the self titled record Portico Quartet in 2012.
Artist: Portico Quartet
Label: Gondwana Records
Now rebooted as Portico Quartet after a brief spell as the three-piece Portico, the group release their fourth studio album Art In The Age Of Automation on Manchester's forward thinking indy jazz and electronica label Gondwana Records. It's an eagerly anticipated return, with the band teasing both a return to their mesmeric signature sound and fresh new sonic departures in their new music.
