Brand new music from Redmond, WA band Taiga. This is their second full length album and it’s called Stone Goddess. Taiga’s sound is a psychedelic rock based music with sitar laced riffs along with an alternative feel to it. Their mix of music is great mix of hard psych-metal and contemporary classic rock. Stone Goddess is a pleasure to listen to, so go do it.
The first Tuesday of the month saw the latest installment of Red Bull Sound Select show featuring Yacht, Wampire, and Snowblind Traveler. All local musicians.
The show started off with Snowblind Traveler. A solo singer/songwriter that has a beautiful voice and a great mustache. Most of his songs are about whiskey and love and death. All good stuff in my book. His next album is set to come out sometime in August and it will be called Confederate Burial.
Next was Wampire. Not only do they have a great indie rock sound to them, they also played The Lost Boys on the projector for the entire show. Their latest release is called Curiosity and is really good so check it.
The headliners were Yacht. Their sound is a little more eccentric. They have a indie electronic-pop computer sounds to them. Very fresh and dancey. The show was a good one as always, and we are looking forward to the next one with Blitzen Trapper.
Some new local Portland music by Azul Toga. The new EP is called #1. Though only three tracks deep, the EP has a great dreamy synth-pop sound to it. Azul Toga has smooth beats, blissful vocals, and minimal guitar filler. I really enjoy this EP, and it is coming out on limited time cassette tape this week thanks to Track and Field Records.
