Dear You: Whatever Happened to Dan deVriend?


You know when you learn a word or a phrase, and suddenly it's everywhere? This happened to me when I first heard about you, Dan deVriend. I was writing a story about Portland wunderkind Adrian Orange a few months back, around the time his latest album Adrian Orange and Her Band was released....   More

The Legend of Dutch Savage, "Gotta Vision" from Dirt Fist Feet (Self-released)


Something about Legend of Dutch Savage reminds me of listening to my dad's old vinyl records. Let me clarify this by stating that my dad is a huge classic rock who loves Grand Funk Railroad and Led Zeppelin.

Dear You: That's Not What Portland Heard


Beth Ditto, I'm disappointed in you. I'm not saying I know much about the politics behind this decision, but I do know the Gossip—the punk-meets-soul band you front—decided to pull out of last weekend's Siren Nation festival with less than a month's notice.

Extended Q&A with Team Dresch


Since reuniting three years ago, things haven't been the same for queercore punk band Team Dresch. The scene has changed—as the band discussed in this week's WW—but the members' lives are different, too. Singer-guitarist Jod...   More

Loch Lomond, "Song in 3/4" from Paper the Walls (Hush Records)


Ritchie Young is a troubadour. Like the European singer-songwriters of the High Middle Ages, the lyricist and leader singer for Loch Lomond tells a story with every song he writes. On the track “Song in ¾” from the band's latest album Paper the Walls, Young's lyrics are both linear and repetit...   More

Dear You: Dressing Down for Halloween


On Saturday, Portland, I was reminded of how much I dislike this time of year. That day, I received a Facebook invitation from fellow music journalist Cary Clarke to see his prog rock band, At Dusk, play a show. The message looked like this:

Event: Rererato Halloween Party
