[SMOOTH GROOVES] Bedroom production studios, bathroom recording booths and Internet music streaming are omnipresent these days. While the convenience of recording technology yields unmeasurable amounts of shit (good and bad), it also brings forth standout gems like Portland’s sultry up-and-coming R&B outfit Shy Girls. Originating in the off-work-hour confines of frontman Dan Vidmar’s home, the group has grown into a full-blown seductive powerhouse, complete with smooth backup vocals and sexy saxophone solos. Incorporating fresh sounds and drawing from popular genres of the last few decades—from shiny boy-band pop to super-synth-y slow jams to hints of Motown—Shy Girls surfaces at a time when hybrid revivalism is growing more and more sought-after among the kids who ardently filled their Walkmans and boomboxes with the sweet grooves of the ’80s and ’90s.
