Described by The Deli Magazine contributor Tracy Mamoun as “surprising, experimental, and fun like rock n’ roll should be,” Nasalrod is a collaborative vision. The intensity of drummer Spit Stix (a founding member of the seminal L.A. punk band FEAR) is a major driving force behind the Portland quartet.

“The genre police will never close the case on Nasalrod. You can’t call them punk because you’d be selling them short. They don’t play noise rock because their songs have structure, even a dance-ability at times. You could almost call them a pop band, but they’re way too heavy and aggressive. They’re a band of musical masterminds that can’t be caught.”
– Aris Wales, The Portland Mercury

Nasalrod’s rst 12” release, Building Machines, opens with the urgent riff of Wage Slave, a frenetic yet tuneful song about the tragicomic daily grind. An off-center concoction of contorted guitar gures and shape-shifting rhythms quickly add fuel to the re, setting the pace for this full length vinyl debut.

Named after the bone in Screamin’ Jay’s nose, Nasalrod has found that originality and insanity can go hand
in hand. Lead singer Chairman’s sneering, kooky yet soulful vocals soar over a sound that is simultaneously melodic, violent and convulsive. Spit Stix, guitarist Mustin Douch, and bassist Mandy Morgan (formerly of Recess Records band Berzerk) provide a sonic backdrop that is the twisted and theatrical heart of Nasalrod.

Armed with their notoriously frantic live show, Nasalrod has shared stages with Mike Watt, Toys That Kill, Torche, and Melt-Banana. In October, the band will begin by performing regionally, and then expand the tour dates nationally throughout 2018 in support of Building Machines.
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.
Honey Bucket
Honey Bucket
Portland trio, Honey Bucket, offer playful, post-pop songs with a punk template. Their not-so-serious standing is met with stripped-down tunes that are often under two minutes.
