Monument (Limited Gatefold Edition)
Warning: Last items in stock!
Monument, Portico Quartet's second album of the year, presents ten tracks of placid landscapes and waterfall melodies, continuing along the path of the group established musical style. Instead of purely acoustic melodies, the album is electronics-focused, letting them wash over each acoustic melody. Each track on the album takes on a different texture: Some highlight lush saxophone melodies and laid-back rhythms; others hang in the air with dreamy stillness. Monument sounds best in these moments of subtle variation, when it gently switches course but doesn’t lose broad-stroked tranquillity.
