FTRK #16 = "Pedestal" by Portishead
Pedestal - Portishead (1994)(Download .mp3)
The nonchalant sound of the drumkit and the soft voice of Beth Gibbons couple together well in this resonant track, featured on Dummy, their debut album. The song also features a gorgeous saxophone riff, spliced into the depths of the sound. The cymbal ripples like the surface of a murky liquid slowly oxidizing into the misty atmosphere the song illustrates.
Burial, Radiohead, Amon Tobin
