To say that the newest release from Coco Columbia is one hell of a wild ride would be an understatement."

"Coco Columbia is a dream, a vehicle, a magic machine where the girl beneath the wig transmutes her real world fears into the raw stuff of courage, much as an alchemist alters gravel into gold."
-Eleven PDX Magazine (2016)

"Coco Columbia's sophomore album, When the Birds Begin to Walk, reveals itself as an astonishing 10-track gallery piece."
-Willamette Week (2016)

Music school dropout Coco Columbia burst onto the Portland music scene in 2014 with her debut, Kickstarter-funded album “The Weight.” Columbia set aside her passion for jazz drumming to teach herself how to write songs, record, make beats, and play piano. Having never performed live, she put together a group of young Portland jazz musicians to learn her material.

Columbia released her sophomore record, “When the Birds Begin to Walk” last August to critical acclaim in the Portland music scene. Her music fuses infectious indie-pop melodies, off-kilter rhythmic feels, dreamy-eyed electro-soul soundscapes, and jazzy harmony to create her own brand of bumpin' future-pop.
Kulululu has traveled long and far to finally arrive on earth. While here, Kulululu is in search of the answers to the questions; why? and why not? You may not understand what they are saying. You may not understand why they look the way they do. They may not understand these things either. What's important is that time is continuous, and without it we cannot find our way back to where we started.
BOINK is a new PNW band from Portland consisting of Papi Fimbres, Shana Lindbeck, Rebecca Rasmussen, Mike Fish, Noelle Magia & Paul Billy Sobiech.

Separated at birth, BOINK have all finally come together after 30+years of wandering the musical desert of life. Once together, the sounds of spastic, electrical surges of art punk/cumbia/psyche emerge like oil spewing away from water once they touch. Their sound is truly like nothing else; a sight to be seen live to fully comprehend the weirdness of it all. Consisting of Portland phenomenal bands such as Sun Angle, Havania Whaal, The Wild Body, Máscaras & Bitch'n, these six homies are starting a new chapter of resonance on the streets of Portland.
