Album info

Two years after the highly acclaimed album Rose-garden, the portables come up with their second full length. Girls Beware! starts where their previous album ended. De Portables developed a cult reputation during the years, mainly because of their many intense and always different performances. Against all recent trends, standards and expectations they do their thing; they play because they like playing. The quartet twists themselves during 11 songs a way between pop, post-rock and electronica. Soft melodies are the central theme but this a pop album in a very broad way. They worked two years on the album and you can hear this. De portables worked out their tracks very decently and reworked them again and again, with a great attention to detail. Rolling basses, playful guitars, crackling electronica, splen-did votes and their own, excellent production makes this album to one that stands on its own. One that takes you fluently to the dream world of Portable-land. You can find references as Pinback, Gastr Del Sol, Notwist and even The Beatles, but above all this is a real Portables record! A record full of simple but rich orchestrated tracks that win richness with every listen. So much beauty on one cd, people would almost forget that it is still possible.   -Kraak
