April 2015
The Tame West
"The Tamed West EP
"
mp3

After a couple active years in the Portland music scene, this past March The Tamed West finally released a first piece of recorded music for listeners to enjoy in the form of a self-titled EP. Though short and sweet, The Tamed West EP boasts influential elements of early Surfer Blood and the late Gauntlet Hair with a heavy wash of reverb over simple yet dancable rhythms, thoughtful vocal melodies and twinkling guitar. The Tamed West claimed the fourth seat in The Deli Portland's 'Best Emerging Artist of 2014' poll, as voted by a jury of local music industry professionals and tastemakers as well as listeners alike. Keep an eye on The Tamed West in the coming years and expect great things.

Portland band on the rise: Hausus open for Cloud Nothings on 03.05

Portland band on the rise: Hausus open for Cloud Nothings on 03.05

Hausu is the collective output of four schoolmates from Portland's famously eccentric Reed College. Disciples of punk in all its historical deviations, particularly that of the Cure and the Smiths, Hausu's music is at once brooding and poppy. All of this nostalgia tempered by a finger on the pulse of the latest blog sounds, there are fresh elements of rhythmic interplay and tongue in cheek lyricism at work on their latest EP. Temporarily on hiatus for the last few months while trying to finish up the school year, the band is promising more upcoming dates with a new set of material to be released as an LP sometime this year. Check them out live at Holocene on Monday March 5th with Cloud Nothings.
