Trip hop? What even is that, you ask?
A really good genre for your homework playlist, for one. (Also, a jewel that I stumbled across while surfing YouTube videos at 3 a.m.) And according to Wikipedia (I’ll trust it on this one), it’s a genre of electronic music that originated in the early 1990s in the United Kingdom, especially Bristol.
Eight miles west of Bristol is Portishead, an English band named after the town located there. Their first album, Dummy, was first released in 1994, and won the Mercury Music Prize in 1995. In 2003, the album was ranked number 419 on Rolling Stone’s magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Basically, you should listen to it. (Yes, that’s one creepy looking album cover. But you should still listen to it.)
