Quiet Type, aka Portland indie pop duo Lee Barbara & Bobby Seus, have spent the last two years put writing, recording, producing and funding their first full-length record. Describing the process as being “an intense journey, fraught with unexpected twists and turns” they’ve finally made it and have announced that the record is available to …

If you liked the candy coated synth/indie pop goodness of Portland based Minden’s 2013 debut, Exotic Cakes, you’re going to love new single Artist Statement, taken from its follow up, the forthcoming album Sweet, Simple Things. Taking the lead from the likes of Peter, Bjorn and John and even Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Artist Statement takes …

“You know, maybe the sun won’t come up tomorrow. Let’s say that’s the case. This is it. Let’s make a great mess while we can my friends.” So says Portland, Oregon’s Rex Marshall, aka Mattress. And with his new track ‘Fuck the Future’, he’s done exactly that. Right from its opening there’s a anxiety about …

Ahead of his forthcoming project Pinehurst, produced entirely by DrewLocs, Portland Oregan MC SamuelThe1st has released new music – Bo Jackson produced by the prolific Stewart Villain who’s dropped a background cut up from some smooth jazz and some scattering percussive work.

We’re not quite used to heat waves here in the north of England, so when we get one, like today (the hottest July day on record, apparently) we get all giddy, kicking back in the garden and drinking beer. I’m sat between work and work, in a supermarket cafe (with no air conditioning) so I’m …

I’m here, stuck in traffic, and yet, with a bit of sunshine outside and the new Brownish Black single Life Lessons, and you know what – life’s all ok here. The Portland based octet started out as a three-piece garage rock band, who have expanded and added a soul edge to their garage roots. Life …

Earlier this month Light Club released their debut EP ‘Youth is Fading’ and ‘they’ have now been kind enough to answer some of our questions.  Come inside, meet the family… We are: Gabe Mouer: all instruments ! We are from: Portland, Oregon Our name doesn’t come from: Nightlife or club culture, despite having “club” in the …

In amongst the days and places that I’ve been listening to this, the debut from Portland, Oregon’s Light Club, I think I’ve found the perfect accompaniment: bright early autumn sunshine augmented by a strong, fresh breeze. I’m sat in my back garden, watching fragments of cloud cruising across the heart-stirringly blue sky, with washing snapping …
