DAY OF LIONS, Come Down From The Mountain (Yukon Records)


[FOLK-POP] Gena Gastaldi’s songs speak—or rather sing—to Portlanders. Like many of this city’s residents, Gastaldi is a transplant. The creative force behind Day of Lions, she moved from Alaska in 2004, and the folkstress has been crafting lovely, subdued folk son...   More

Dear You: I'll Be Seeing You


A week or so back, Portland, I went to the Doug Fir to check out local band the Builders and the Butchers open for New York indie-rockers the Walkmen. I have to admit, I'd never the seen the Builders before that night, but I'd heard rumors about the band's live shows. Apparently, Po...   More

"Boots On," Blue Horns Band (Unreleased)


Not long after moving into my now two-year-old apartment, I was unpleasantly awoken by my upstairs neighbor's daily 10 am band practice.

Dear You: Buying What I'm Selling


You tell me, Portland: Is earning $33 for selling 60 CDs a fair deal?

It's a question I can't really answer myself, because I have to admit that, until yesterday, I'd never sold CDs in this town. In the past five years, I've only accumulated more and more CDs without getting rid o...   More

Dan deVriend, "Anthems" from And His Fabulous Playboys (Jealous Butcher)


Sometimes, all it takes is one song to fall in love with a band. When listening to Dan deVriend's And His Fabulous Playboys, the track "Anthems" stands out as that one song. All the elements that make up my favorite kind of music are there: A slow but even tempo, a softly strummed guitar and em...   More
