fall essentials: portishead

In the past few weeks, Music Is Art has shared PJ Harvey, and Interpol as two fall essentials to listen to during the autumn season. Portishead is simply another. Their albums Dummy, Portishead II, Live at Roseland, and Third, as well as singer Beth Gibbon’s solo album Out of Season should all be enjoyed right now. Each song of theirs all blends together into becoming a reminiscent memory of what October looks like: golden fallen leaves, strong wind and stormy days, pumpkins on old porches, romantic ivory candlelight, and a surreal haunted spell preparing for Halloween on it’s way. There’s a creepiness in the air… and it’s the best, most magical time of year.

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
