The 1st of July saw the return of Red Bull Sound Selects to Mississippi Studios. Once again it was a packed show featuring all Portland artists. First to play was Tiburones. A band that we have featured before. They have a great spicy rock sound to them, and though they don’t have anything recorded that I can share, check out the projects they worked on before becoming a band. Death Songs, Y La Bamba.
After Tiburones, Pony Village played next. With a sound that is something like Death Cab and Dinosaur Jr. with a little twang to it, makes for a quick likening. These guys are working on some new material that they are hoping to get recorded this summer so be on the lookout for that.
The headliner for the show was Blitzen Trapper. They put on a pretty good show, though it kinda lost momentum towards the end. But these guys have a great neo-western rock sound.
