The Ninja Tune crew strike again!
After their previous collaboration with Alt-j's Jew Newman titled "101", the dudes from Portico are back with very aerial release titled "Atacama". I won't go much into the complete transformation the (nowdays) trio have undergone, but after hearing all the recent works, I would consider them as an absolutely new band. And a great one too!
Props should go to mr. Newman too for the perfectly matched vocals to the mystical electronic soundscapes designed by Portico. The mid-song section reminds me of the majestic mountains of my motherland. It makes me wish to turn into an eagle and enjoy a bird-view of some high and ancient forests. Absolutely beautiful.
"Atacama" is taken from Portico's album Living Fields, released 30th March 2015 on Ninja Tune
