Portishead's album Alien isn't Portishead; it's Mandalay's Empathy, yes? How did this happen and what could/should I do about it's place in my music library? [more inside]
I'm looking for any relatively new bands/artists that sound like Portishead. Signed or unsigned - any recommendations?
In the song "Sour Times" by Portishead, there is a bizarre stringed instrument with percussive elements in the background. I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what it is. [more inside]
Was there a Portishead remix of DJ Shadow's Midnight in a Perfect World? [more inside]
Trip Hop (or downtempo or whatever): I love Tricky, Massive Attack, Hooverphonic, Portishead, Laika, Lamb, Sneaker Pimps, Martina, etc. What other, new acts have a similar sort of dark, humid and metallic aftertaste?
