Buffalo Voice- Apple Bed

Like a chamber-pop band led by a synth player and inspired by Nico Muhly's Mothertongue and John Cale's Artificial Intelligence, Land & Buildings' Huron River Eclipse is an album "similar in tone to lonely morning rain or the stillness of a roadside motel on the long drive through the desert to nowhere."

Released on Life Like. Listen on[ continued ]

Icarus Phoenix's debut full-length is a perfect piece of well-produced languid and dreamy indie-pop. The perfect soundtrack to so many easy-going days, introspective moments.

Released on Telos Tapes. Listen on[ continued ]

Jesse Carsten (Half Shadow) and Raf Spielman (Woolen Men) combine to make music that's perfectly unlike other things. Future retro spoken word dance music. Recorded performance art you can sing along to. One of my favorite Portland bands.
