The Upsidedown
The Upsidedown
"Dreamy and decadent in all the right places.” - The Boston Globe
“The Upsidedown plays dirty, glammed-up, drugged-down guitar rock with a dark heart. Their brand of ambient rock carries forth in a grand tradition: carefully constructed Dandies drone, pop hooks and devil-may-care-decadence.” –
The Willamette Weekly
The Get Ahead
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, The Get Ahead puts a modern edge on a classic sound - drawing from the roots of Soul, R&B and Rock. The Get Ahead will send you to the dance floor, where you can jump, moan, and grab hold of some sweet company. Get to a show. Bring your dancing shoes. Unbutton that top few. And let's get loose.
Jeremy Wilson
Jeremy Wilson
It has been said, by Courtney Love herself, that she first met her late husband Kurt Cobain at a Dharma Bums concert, at the now defunct legendary club Satyricon, in Portland, Oregon. Frontman for that Portland, Oregon outfit, which also featured The Decemberists’ drummer John Moen, is Jeremy Wilson, a staple of the vibrant Portland music scene. And, just as Portland’s music scene has changed over the years, so has Wilson, who has lived through - and weathered - the storms of the music industry the whole time. Which brings us to his forthcoming full-length, Empty Through Empty Space, his first true solo album (sans 2005’s Independence Vol. 1: Demos And Out-Takes - a collection of demos and out-takes Wilson had recorded over the years).
The Reverberations
Dave Berkham (formally from The CRY) always loved Garage and Beat music from the 60's. After departing the band earlier in 2014, he made it his mission to form a new group. Meeting John (Sundaze, White Swans) and Ian (Go Fever, Errata Note) while playing in a favorite local 60's cover band, The Hauer Things, was the catalyst to continue and write original material. Cameron, a former bandmate from the Midnight Callers, joined as the bass guitarist, and The Reverberations were born.
One Life
Jaycob Van Auken
Van Auken's style is incisive and genuine. He is a rock classicist with a singer-songwriter streak. His propensity for blending rock, blues, folk and country allows his songs to move in various directions, while keeping the same destination. It's easy to swamp him with flattering comparisons. Finding a home somewhere in the midst of Tom Petty, Lyle Lovett, Van Morrison and The Faces, Van Auken is somewhat akin to acoustic folk-blues, not quite country, and can rock loud like the best red-blooded Amercians. The expressive immediacy of his voice is distinctive and demands attention, calling to mind the soulful songs recorded back in Muscle Shoals, as well as the rock classics heard in his mom's van while growing up.
The Zags
The Zags
We're a band from Portland, OR. We play rock 'n' roll music, more or less.
Pacific Mean Time
"Let go." Two words that mean very different things depending upon who's speaking. When spoken by your employer, it can mean panic. Crisis. When Edwin Paroissien found himself unexpectedly unemployed in early winter 2012, instead of doubling down on the job search, he heard the words as a challenge—a dare. A dare to let go of all distractions and make the record he and his band always wanted to make. The result of their efforts is a wholly sublime thrill ride of an album. Pacific Mean Time's eponymous debut is a gorgeously detailed, personal testament to the full length recording, but it took a while to get there…
The Hauer Things
The Hauer Things is a Nuggets compilation come to life, kicking and screaming its way through garage rock classics with wild abandon. Comprised of members of Portland bands The Reverberations, Hong Kong Banana and The Satin Chaps, The Hauer Things have been igniting sweat induced freak-outs since their first performance in 2014.
