Portico Quartet sound like nothing you ever heard before. The Mercury nominated East London based outfit's unique music has expanded to embrace new sonic territories. Drawing on the inspiration of electronica, ambient, classical and dance music as they take their strange, beautiful, cinematic, future music to exciting new vistas where the inspiration of Burial, Mount Kimbie and Flying Lotus rubs shoulders with the textures of Arve Henriksen and Bon Iver and echoes of Steve Reich and Max Richter. But all underpinned by a shared joy in collective music making as the band push their inimitable music into the future.

Their previous album, Tincian, (also featured on Society of Sound) was described by The Line of Best Fit as "ripped through with transcendence; a brooding melancholy as much as a gossamer dreaminess", and was voted Best Album at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Awards by the public.

The Choir hails from Cuba's third city, Camagüey, an old colonial town which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008 for its iconic architecture, where the singers have studied music to university level and are members of the Provincial Choir, which their leader Emilia Chavez directs. Desandann (the original Cuban name of The Creole Choir of Cuba) emerged out of this choir in 1994, a difficult time for Cubans when the economy fell into a black hole following the end of the USSR and of Soviet support for the revolution. Food was in short supply, while homes and work places often went dark due to lack of electricity. The singers decided to re-forge the resistance songs and laments of their forebears and to celebrate the history of their Haitian descendants.

David Rhodes, Peter Gabriel's guitarist-of-choice for the last three decades, is explaining why it's taken him so long to take centre-stage and record the first record under his own name. He's typically modest and "quite strong" is something of an understatement. The songs on "Bittersweet", released through the B&W Society Of Sound, reveal a hidden talent, someone whose clear songwriting skills fully deserve any belated limelight thrust in their direction.

Inspired by Rimbaud's poem, Ophelie, Bologna-based trio Ofeliadorme live up to their name. Seductive, tender, immersive, and shrouded in a mystery befitting ancient prose, theirs is a crossroads between the serenity of Cocteau Twins, Portishead's emotive darkness, and PJ Harvey's shape shifting pop qualities. It's ambient, New Wave, dreamy, stargazing electronica. One part foggy warmth, another stark desperation, the results are truly unique, and utterly compelling.

"New Blood" is a continuum of Peter’s previous album, "Scratch My Back", a song-swap project where he covered the songs of others, all to an orchestral backing. “He really liked what he was discovering,” explains his engineer Richard ‘Dickie’ Chappell. “As soon as we started do the covers, there was talk of applying it to his own songs. It was always an ongoing thought”. The album has been created specifically for Bowers & Wilkins' Society Of Sound members.
