143. Portishead - ‘Dummy’ + Belgian Blue

Portishead - ‘Dummy’ + Belgian Blue

Ingredients: 1 ounce vodka, 1/2 ounce coconut liqueur, 1/2 ounce blue curacao, 7-up (refrigerated). 

Mixing Instructions: Pour first three ingredients in glass, add 7-up to taste.  

Notes: It’s rare for a group to find both the courage and creativity required to carve out not just a unique sound, but a seemingly entire new genre of music.  Even more unlikely is that a band would do so and come out of the gates with and album that would be met with such immediate and widespread praise from music fans.  The debut album from Bristol-based group, Portishead, did just that, helping put trip-hop on the map and cementing Dummy as a seminal work of music history and appreciation.  Dark, brooding, downtempo, jazz and hip hop-infused sound that flows freely back and forth between spy movie and smoke-filled dance club.  This is after-midnight-music made for squeezing the last drops out of the night — a classic album that pairs well with a deliciously smooth blue cocktail.
