Here’s a taster of the new Portishead album. This is a live performance of a new track called ‘Peaches’, taken from their recent performance at ATP: Nightmare Before Christmas in Minehead, which they curated. If this is anything to go by, the new album should see Portishead widening their sound pallette as this is far more up-tempo, bordering on Psych, and there seems to be a Silver Apples/United States of America vibe to this one. It’s also much heavier than anything they’ve done in the past. It’ll be interesting to see if the whole album sounds like this. The album, which may or may not be called ‘Alien’ is due out in April 2008.
