Augmented Fourth With what I would consider Town Portal's most fitting album art to date, "The Occident" is a distilled journey into cubist instrumental soundscapes. Utilizing a sound comparable to Dysrhythmia's, Town Portal eschew normal cantabile "leading melodies" in favor of a more pure focus on precise orchestration, bass melodies, grooves, and tight compositions.
