[THE GENRE FORMERLY KNOWN AS FOLK] The musical ambitions of the Lower 48 are a perfect mirror image of the personal aspirations that led the trio to Portland from Minneapolis: to get bigger, louder and more panoramic. Prior to joining the cultural gold rush of the Northwest, the Lower 48 managed a serviceable blend of male-female vocals over hushed guitars that brought to mind the ’60s sounds of the wide-open West—Gram Parsons, the Mamas and the Papas, etc. It’s only fitting that the move to Portland has added a much-needed swagger to the group's step, elevating the Lower 48 to a plugged-in powerhouse that stomps through 4/4 numbers its Midwestern iteration may have stumbled over a few years back.
