Countdown to Melt! Festival – Three…

Portishead - Third

Portishead – Third

As Fran and I prepare ourselves for Melt! Festival in July, this fortnight we will be listening to the latest album by one of the festival’s headliners.

Although it may seem a long time since Portishead released Third (six years ago in 2008), this came an even longer eleven years after their previous album, Portishead, which was released in 1997.

Other examples of long awaited albums include:

  • My Bloody Valentine’s follow up to Loveless (1991), mbv, released in 2013.
  • Smile by Brian Wilson which was begun in 1966 and finished in 2004.
  • David Bowie’s surprise album The Next Day released last year, ten years after his previous.
Each fortnight Fran and Dave choose a new album to listen to. We write about the genre or artist during the fortnight, and post our reviews on Sunday. Want to join the musical adventure? Subscribe by clicking the link in the sidebar to get an email every time there’s a new post.
