Exclusive one-off track from Portishead finally makes it to vinyl! "Chase The Tear" was made in conjunction with Amnesty International on the eve of International Human Rights Day back in 2009 and features a very different style beat then your used to from Portishead. It's an uptempo motorik kraut rock affair with a driving arpeggiated synth and it works as an excellent contrast to Beth Gibbons soul-baring vocals. This 12" also includes an brilliant cover version by the Doldrums and is housed in a full pic sleeve. Recommended.
