April 2015
The Tame West
"The Tamed West EP

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.

What's YOURS is Yours

What's YOURS is Yours

You might expect just another garage band by the look ‘em, but the windingly calm psychedelia of YOURS will move you so much further than the grunge of a half-stack on a summer’s day. The incredibly homespun warmth of weeping guitars arrested by hints of driving beats beside subtle vocal harmonies sweeping across songs like “Transformer Dream” will take you under a comforting wave of something to remember. It's the kind of music that hugs your surroundings and sneaks that much closer to you. Yours recently finished recording their album, so keep your eyes on the presses for that to drop in the next couple months. Catch YOURS tonight at Holocene with Monarques and Arch Cape!
