Portland, Oregon based Cambrian Explosion is a Psychedleic Rock band founded by guitarist/singer Nori Lockhardt and drummer Ben Dorothy. Named after the epochal event in which animal life first appeared on earth, the band got the idea from watching Carl Sagan's Cosmos; where much of their lyrical and aesthetic influence comes from. The group solidified their sound in 2016 with the addition of Archie Heald on bass, Derrin Twiford on keyboards/percussion and the release of their sophomore album, The Moon. Through colossal guitar driven movements and gentle ethereal soundscapes, Cambrian Explosion beckons the listener to explore the mysteries of space and time
Ghost Frog are four humanoids from planet Earth who started to make noise together in the winter of star date 2013 in Portland, OR. After a lot of trial and error they eventually honed in on what is now their signature sound, an unlikely merging of punk, post punk, shoegaze, and stoner rock that also draws inspiration from space age and dystopian science fiction. The result is what they call “space punk,” a unique brand of tripped out noise rock that sounds like it was made by angry aliens on acid.
Ayla Ray is an electro-rock outfit based in Portland, Oregon. The group is founded and fronted by vocalist/producer Sam Tenhoff, formerly of Animal Eyes- a psych-rock group that has opened for national acts such as T.V. On The Radio, Portugal. The Man, and Menomena. Ayla Ray is known for their blend of sexy EDM beats and textures mixed with grimy guitars and mighty troubadour lead vocals.
