“Roads” by Portishead

April 12, 2009

One of the Chum Master’s favorite tunes.  “Roads” premiered on Portishead’s 1994 debut album Dummy which is considered a seminal trip-hop album and also appeared at #419 of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.  Haunting electronic music…hard to describe other than to say it’s wonderful.  Learn more about Portishead at their official website or on their Myspace page.

The Trons of New Zealand.

The Trons are a completely self playing robotic junk band! They are made mostly from old computer and mechanical parts and play original songs using an array of old amps and instruments. They now have five gigs under their belt and have just completed Hamilton’s Ignition Fringe Festival.
