  RR: Mercury Prize-nominated Portico Quartet has always been an impossible band to pin down. Sending out echoes of jazz, electronica, ambient music and minimalism, the group created their own singular, cinematic sound over the course of three studio albums, from their 2007 breakthrough 'Knee-Deep in the North Sea', and 2010 John Leckie produced 'Isla', to the self titled record 'Portico Quartet' in 2012. Now rebooted as Portico Quartet after a brief spell as the three-piece Portico, the group are set to release their fourth studio album Art In The Age Of Automation this August on Manchester's forward thinking indy jazz and electronica label Gondwana Records. It's an eagerly anticipated return, with the band teasing both a return to their mesmeric signature sound and fresh new sonic departures in their new music. So much so that their four-night run at Archspace E8 (June 22-25) sold out in less than an hour as fans from around the world scrambled for tickets to hear the return of Portico Quartet. Support from Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum and similar minded DJs around the world. Airplay from TSF France. Features in Jazzism, Jazzthing, Jazzwise and beyond. Reviews in the Guardian, Mojo, Uncut and more. Full servcing to the Gondwana Records international DJ and radio mailing list. We mentioned this briefly in our weekly mailout last week, but now we can share some more details on this exciting new Portico Quartet album due on Gondwana Records. Available on CD and 2xLP this album sees former Mercury Prize nominees Portico Quartet return to their familiar, yet hard-to-categorise sound, whilst also exploring new directions combining jazz, electronica, minimalism and everything inbetween. Press support has been overwhelmingly positive so far, with reviews from The Guardian, DJ Mag (who called it very beautiful, a breakthrough), MOJO, Uncut, Jazzwise, FT.com, The405, XLR8R, Clash Magazine, Electronic Sound, Drowned In Sound, The Arts Desk, Record Collector and more. Radio support has come from Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum (for whom the band recorded a live session due to air on BBC Radio 2 on August 15th) and FIP Radio in France where the album will be the Album of the Month selection for September. The album is priced at £6 for the CD and £12.99 for the double LP and is released on 25th August. Portico Quartet have a number of live dates lined up including: August 12: Boomtown Fair October 13: Turner Sims, Southampton October 19: Scala, London October 28: Colston Hall, The Lantern, Bristol November 10: RNCM, Manchester Click here to view this mailout online Keep up to date with our Kudos Latest Hits & Highlights Spotify playlist. line Portico Quartet - Art in the Age of Automation Portico Quartet Art in the Age of Automation Gondwana Records 11 track album (Jazz — Crossover Jazz) Portico Quartet stake claims to territory occupied by Radiohead, Cinematic Orchestra and Efterklang.
