Here’s another artist who is going to be at Treefort 2017. They go by Elvis Depressedly, and their latest release is called California Dreamin’. Elvis Depressedly has a very chill, lo-fi glam-pop sound to them. California Dreamin’ is the type of EP that makes you want to curl up with a hot cup of booze and stare reflectively out of your window. The undertones of each track gives a slight dizzying sensation that creates a sense of something just out of reach. Elvis Depressedly has a great catalog of songs that are all around two minutes long, but I have to say my favorite is “Angel Cum Clean”. Definitely excited to see these guys at Treefort next March.
Music from Eugene, OR, the band is called VCR. They put out an 8-track album called Season One! back at the beginning of June, and it is fantastic! VCR has a classic surf-rock sound to them that gets rowdy as they infuse punk elements into most of their tracks. They have great song structure, and catchy guitar riffs that are on that edge of chaos. Season One! is full of excellent songs that makes you want to get drunk with your friends and have a good time. So grab your 12-pack and turn up VCR to the max!

We here at Killing Sasquatch find the hidden gems that all the cool people will be at this year. So here’s a couple of bands that you wont want to miss.
Hailing from the Bay Area, The Seshen brings a lovely, smooth R&B sound to an electronic beat-scape. Lead singer, Lalin St. Juste has an amazing voice that leads this seven piece. This is an act that you cannot miss at Treefort.
Next up is Flaural from Denver, CO. These guys have a more classic psych-rock sound to them. THe music is very hypnotic and driving at the same time. They are another band that will rock your face off at Treefort VI.

Hey everyone we’re back after a brief hiatus with some new music from Portland’s own Coastlands. Their new album is called To Be Found. The post-rock group has been playing together for the last couple of years, and this new album is incredibly dynamic. Coastlands uses a lot of grungy guitars along with great drumming that includes a lot of cymbals. To Be Found is a great album for those who love Explosions in the Sky, though Coastlands is not as ambient. The whole album is super well constructed, it sounds like driving the coastal highways in the Pacific Northwest. Highly recommended to all those post-rock lovers out there.
New music from Portland outfit, Wooden Indian Burial Ground. Their new full length is called How’s Your Favorite Dreamer?. It’s a journey of experimental psycho-billy rock that pushes the boundaries of psych-rock. WIBG brings out the inner freak right off the bat. Their sound is derived from ear-crushing guitars, hoppy vocals, and overall wobbly chaotic drive that comes from the drums and keys/organ. How’s Your Favorite Dreamer? is one of the best that has come out of Portland this year. The album starts off with two absolute bangers, then slows down for a second to give you a break before getting back into it with “Spazz Pony.” Wooden Indian Burial Ground has more subdued/experimental tracks on this album than their previous full lengths. These guys make an incredible live show so be sure to check them out, and let your freak flag fly with Wooden Indian Burial Ground.
