Review: This has sort of taken us by surprise but, yes, here you are, a' new Portico Quartet album! The British outfit have grown and grown since their early releases back in 2006, seemingly ahead of their time at every turn, and a new release from them is always seen as a breath of fresh air around Juno HQ. Jack Wyllie, Duncan Bellamy, Milo Fitzpatrick and Keir Vine return to Matthew Halsall's Gondwana Records, out of Manchester, with the trippy, explorative sounds of Untitled (AITAOA #2). Jazz doesn't really describe it fully enough, and ambient is way too loose a word for this smart and complex medley of harmonies, but those are precisely the first things you hear when Portico Quartet hit you speakers. Plenty of rhythm, energy and even a little bit of dread go into making this an experience from start to finish. Recommended!

Review: Matthew Halsall founded Gondwana Records in 2008. An independent label based in Manchester, it's gone on to release music by Dwight Trible, GoGo Penguin, Nat Birchall and Halsall himself. The label has won acclaim across the world and can claim the likes of Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff and Bonobo as fans. Next up are the Mercury Prize nominated Portico Quartet with their powerful new album Art In The Age Of Automation: where they're now rebooted as a quartet after a brief spell as the three-piece Portico. They have always been an impossible band to pin down; taking in aspects of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism but the group have undoubtedly crafted their own singular sound. There's the dashing and cinematic bliss of "Objects To Place In A Tomb" and the hypnotic live drum and bass of "A Luminous Beam" amongst other highlights.

Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Endless (4:25)
  2. Undercurrent (5:25)
Review: Often caned by the likes of Bonobo, "Endless" is taken from Portico Quintet's album Art in the Age of Automation' which was released on Gondwana Records back in 2017 Now it gets its own pressing on a super 7" with "Undercurrent." The former is lush, spring day and mellifluous jazz with tumbling live drums and lead wind that takes the mind away. "Undercurrent" was reared din the same sessions and is here making its long awaited vinyl debut. This is part there of the special 7" series the label is running and features bespoke artwork from Gondwana Records designer Daniel Halsall.
