  • Portishead

    This Bristol trio helped popularize the trip-hop genre in the UK and abroad with its groundbreaking 1994 debut, Dummy. Mashing up hip-hop scratching with tripped-out beats, dark atmospherics, elements of jazz, and the eerie vocals of Beth Gibbons, the album produced the singles “Sour Times,” “Glory Box,” and “Numb” and earned Portishead a Mercury Prize. The self-titled Portishead followed in 1997, showcasing a harsher side of the band and producing the singles “Only You,” “Over,” and “All Mine.” The group surprised audiences again the following year with Roseland NYC Live featuring a breathtaking one-off performance with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. After an almost 10-year hiatus, Portishead returned in 2008 with its Krautrock-influenced third album, Third. You can’t go wrong with any of these records as Portishead’s otherworldly sound is utterly transfixing on vinyl.
