So today I got a $5 gift certificate to Amazon’s MP3 store because I’d just dropped some money with them on CDs. [You’ll see those purchases soon.] I’d always been sort of curious about Portishead, and then before Goodgame’s release show, the sound guy played a couple tracks, which I knew were theirs thanks to Shazam. I asked the Twitterverse about what I should spend my lucre on, and Travis suggested that I hit up Amazon’s fifty best albums of 2008, currently on sale in MP3 form for $5. So I grabbed Portishead’s Third, in the process dismaying my friend Joe, who is trying to get anyone and everyone to listen to the Avett Brothers right now.
