Really liking this ambient jazz fusion record from Portico. I obviously adored their last, more hypnotic and minimalist than this one, but this one is fucking great too. It’s a little more rock orientated and regular musical patterns but still is able to really push and pull your emotions, really loving this
i thought parquet courts misspelled their own band name again
thank fucking god it's just an average nu jazz fusion album
