Tango Alpha Tango
Tango Alpha Tango
Tango Alpha Tango is a four-piece Portland, OR rock & roll outfit lead by virtuosic guitarist, singer/songwriter, Nathan Trueb. He is joined by his wife Mirabai on bass guitar, Joey Harmon on drums, and Daniel Jones on keys and guitar. These northwest natives have been honing in on their fusion of blues and rock on stages from Portland all the way to Austin, TX for SXSW and everywhere in between since 2008. The quality of their music will reel you in with memorable melodies and catchy guitar hooks peppered with funky bass-lines, driving beats, and psychedelic keys. You'll want to catch their live show any time you can because the group's energy is infectious and leaves audiences in a sweaty frenzy screaming for more.

You'd be forgiven for mistaking Astro Tan for British exports, from singer Sam Wegman's Blur-y vocals to the band's expansive sound. But the trio hails from Portland, founded in August 2013 and now ready to release its debut EP, "Soma." Lead track "Hips" drowns a guitar in reverb but keeps its vocals crisp, as a sax break and jazz gymnastics keeps the song from going up in psychedelic smoke. The rest of the collection continues the merger, blending sharp musicianship with daydream textures. It's lovely, languid stuff. - Oregon Live
