- TAV // Essential Listening -

Portishead built upon the foundations laid by its trip hop predecessors to popularise the genre
with a sensuous, shadowy, and sultry debut album for the ages. Led by the chilling, wounded
fragility of Beth Gibbons’ sombre vocals and the spectacularly desolate atmosphere crafted by
multi-instrumentalist Geoff Barrow, Dummy’s entrancing amalgamation of slow-beat blues, jazz-
inflected soul, dark breakbeats and hip-hop scratches feels like it was composed to backdrop
the most mysterious film noir that was never filmed. As cool as it is warm, as sexy as it is sad,
as lonely as it is lovely - Dummy is a strangely irresistible, avant-garde exploration of trip hop’s
smokiest bars and gloomiest alleyways. An absolutely sublime gem.
