The Tamed West
The Tamed West is a psych-rock trio from Portland, Oregon. After a few years, a 4-track EP and a couple of line-up changes later, we are excited to announce the release of our first full-length album. The self-titled work features Laura Hopkins on Bass and Vocals (Laura Palmers Death Parade and Blackwater Holylight) and Brant Hajek on Drums. Recorded and produced by David Pollock (Supernatural Sound), this album draws tightly off our live sound while consistent with layered, reverberated melodies and vocal harmonies.

Robert Grubaugh (Tribe Mars) has been on Drums for nearly two years running and Aaron Stern (Mystrionics and Sheers) is our newest addition, rocking the bass for close to a year now. Come celebrate the long awaited release of our new album at Doug Fir on July 14th.

Boone Howard, Frontman of The We Shared Milk, hasn’t skipped a beat in his songwriting since the band called an indefinite hiatus in late 2014. With a new full length solo album already nearing completion, Boone’s new songs take a step back from the heavier garage discord of TWSM days, highlighting his lyrically-driven, soulful garage pop orchestration in it’s purest form.

The seven-member group playing his new songs however is far from a solo act. Boone puts down the guitar to focus solely on his crooning, and is backed by Casey Burge of Minden on guitar, Leo London and Mike Finn of The Domestics on keys and guitar respectively, Ryan Neighbors of Hustle & Drone on synth, and the former rhythm section of The We Shared Milk - Eric Ambrosius and Travis Leipzig.
