When you name your band after a sad country song, it could become a self-fulfilling prophecy. There’s nothing country about the dark, synthy rock n roll sound of Thanks, but they capture those classic country themes of heartache, sorrow and dancing with your devils…but with punch and a middle finger in the air.

Thanks was formed as a 6 piece of strangers, couples and old friends in 2011. The name came first and the sound followed.

That sound is dark, deliberate, and punchy. The songs, though crafted and tight, stay wild. There’s power, growl, emotional depth and also, somehow, this bright inescapable pop. They’ve found a strange and important balance between ripping you up and catching you with hooks. There is a soul in this music. It breathes and bleeds and moves. And live, they ‘re fun as hell.

Their first full length, Blood Sounds, was released in early 2014 to high praise and their sophomore release, No Mercy in the Mountain is due out early this fall.
Moon By You
Moon By You
Moon By You, Doo-Wop cosmonauts of Portland Oregon, have landed on Planet Rock n’ Roll with a mission. They push the boundaries of a millennial psychedelic revival to honor 50’s and 60’s era artists that made the scene possible. Moon by You’s sound is akin to a spaceship landing in a swamp while Elvis’ ghost croons from a cypress tree under a full moon. Lead vocalist and front woman, Sarah Q, guides her motley crue of band mates over desert landscapes and dream worlds. Moon By You harmonize, experiment with their instrumental lineup, and mystify during their live performances. Through sound, we time travel with Moon By You, from out of the dingy basement, the hipster bar, the backyard party into a place where Little Richard communes with the Buddha and the Goddess of Moon sips quicksilver wine, holding revelers in her hand.
