Sheers
Sheers’ music cuts in ways where expressive & ambitious pop vignettes become expansive songs.” (Impose Magazine) Melodicism and classical stylings converge in the brooding soundscapes of Portland’s experimental pop trio Sheers. Frontwoman and songwriter Lily Breshears grips tight the reins of her voice, bending the edges of melody to wrap unease in a veil of beauty. Breshears combines turn of millennium R&B with elements of French impressionism, an interplay of tension, texture and groove. Since jazz drummer Daniel Rossi and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Stern joined the project, Sheers has found a sound near triphop, but as Willamette Week writes, “it’s a real treat to hear a band that’s almost a genre unto themselves."

!mindparade
!mindparade
!mindparade is an American experimental pop project originally formed in Bloomington, IN, and currently based in Portland, OR. Brainchild of multi­-instrumentalist Alex Arnold, the live show and recordings combine art­pop, psychedelia, math­ rock, and drone/ambient music with orchestration in explorations of song arc. !mindparade constantly self­-records at their home studio, resulting in albums that feature varied stylistic tendencies.

The band self-released it’s debut record Everything Is Happening in 2012, described by NUVO magazine as “an ambitious low-fi bedroom symphony marked by flourishing psychedelic arrangements and dreamy tunes that recall everything from Deerhunter to T. Rex to the Elephant 6 Collective”. The band went on to release the Hero EP (2013) and Dead Mystics (2015) on limited-run tape cassettes and vinyl. Singles from Dead Mysticspremiered on blogs such as Impose as the band embarked on several national DIY tours in promotion of the record. In 2017, !mindparade released Aleatoric Phase LP on Detroit-based micro label Atonuv, which featured two 17 minute tracks of ambient, avant-garde synth explorations. Previously a staple in the mid-west tour scene, the group is currently focused on bringing their journey-like performances to audiences up and down the west coast.
