Somehow, it’s been twenty years (?!) since Portishead’s Dummy was released.
13-year-old me LOVED this album. I’ll tell you, it holds up really well. I almost spat my coffee out with joy upon reading in Consequence of Sound that Dummy will be reissued in fancy, moody blue vinyl.
To celebrate, here are my three favorite songs from Dummy.
“Sour Times” (Obviously. And how I loved that creepy-cool video!)
“It’s a Fire”
In these interludes, poet and singer-songwriter Hannah Stephenson invites you to eavesdrop on the music bouncing around her brain. She’d love to hear your thoughts, your inner soundtrack, and what band inspired that shrine in your bedroom.
