Ah God, Heavy Hawaii, Tender Age
1028 SE Water Ave.
[DARK GARAGE POP] Ah God features members of Portland psychedelic act Talkative, but instead of Animal Collective-esque upbeat jams, the band tries out a fuzzy, garage-y, lo-fi thing. Whiny vocals battle with distorted guitar and heavy-hitting bass drum, while the layers of noise can drop off into electric dissonance that’s quite nice. Heavy Hawaii come up from Southern California for more uncannily distant guitar work.
