speaking of machine guns....

Portishead released it's new single off their 3rd album (titled Third) after more than 10 years called Machine Gun and here it is on youtube:

Alot of blokes are saying "it doesn't sound like portishead...blah, blah." but aren't realizing that this album shouldn't sound like the first two in the sense of it sounding like traditional trip-hop which they pretty much owned. Portishead always sounded different, and this sounds unlike anything i've heard in a long time and it's pretty fantastic to hear them again after so long. In fact, i'd be pretty disappointed if i heard something that sounded too similar to their first two albums. And if you really listen to how it's structured, it does sound like Portishead, except 2008. Amazing. Coachella, here we come!
