Yaquina Bay
Yaquina Bay
Yaquina Bay (yuh–kwin–uh bay) is a chamber rock band from NW Oregon. The six-piece group joins elements of pop and post-rock to create a sound which is both untamed and thoughtfully arranged. Tight grooves carry intimate vocal passages, and are often juxtaposed with wild, overdriven guitars and soaring violins.

Their newest work is a self-titled EP which explores the places of the heart and mind where a lot of us fear to go. On the heels of life-altering circumstance, frontman Christopher Ward speaks of isolation and acceptance, noise and peace, unraveling relationships, God, and life afterward.

A tightly-knit band of friends as earnest as they are endearing, Yaquina Bay is akin to the calm before the storm, and the storm itself.
The Fourth Wall
The Fourth Wall
Originally from Hawaii, the Fourth Wall members Stephen Agustin, Kasey Shun, and Paul Brittain, made their way east to the Pacific Northwest, planting their music roots in Portland, Oregon where they met new drummer Max Lilien, in 2012. The band is set to release Lovely Violence, a fine shoegazing effort whose knack for melodies would fit well on a mix with the Shins or Menomena, two bands the Fourth Wall opened for when they were in Hawaii.

The album’s songs deal with freedom, moral solitude, and the beauty and terror of an unconditional commitment. Look for Lovely Violence on July 31 via Bug Hunt.

After a string of head-turning, critically acclaimed releases on Hush Records, Portland's Loch Lomond has brought their unique brand of raw symphonic chamber pop to locally based record label Tender Loving Empire. Lead singer RITCHIE YOUNG is able to switch from high-pitched fragility to alto thunder in the turn of a phrase, yet he knows the power of restraint intuitively, saving vocal tornadoes for emotional apexes buoyed by string swells and moving arrangements.
