Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

12. PortisheadThird

Please don’t think me presumptuous if I say: I feel like we are musical cousins. The depth of their commitment to excellence is an inspiration to me, as is the honesty of their artistry. I list Third because it is what I have in front of me, but I could pick out any of their releases and say the same thing.

Portishead make me proud to be an artist.
