Triptides
Triptides
Triptides is a psychedelic rock group led by multi-instrumentalist Glenn Brigman. It began as a series of home recorded tape machine experiments. As the music has grown and transformed, so has the project. As a musician and a producer, Brigman has always surrounded himself with other like minded musicians who have allowed him to perform his recording studio creations for audiences across the USA and Europe. From festival appearances at Desert Daze and Barcelona Psych fest to late night appearances on Last Call with Carson Daly and a West Coast tour with UK’s Temples, the group has continued a strong pace and shows no signs of slowing down. The group released their latest record “Visitors” this summer to critical acclaim with AllMusic calling it “their best sounding record to date” and LA Record describes it as “an expansive expedition into the under current of the late sixties.”

Triptides has always meant something different to everyone; to the surfer it’s music to hit the beach to; to the 60’s music enthusiast it’s an attempt to create something groovy and psychedelic in the modern era without attempting to re-tread the same path; to some people it’s just a sound that makes them feel something. Whatever your style is, Triptides will definitely make you FEEL. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
Winter
Winter
Winter is a dreamy indie rock band whose sound was conceived in Boston. Beginning as a collaborative effort between Samira Winter and Nolan Eley, their first recordings culminated into the 2012 EP entitled Daydreaming. Following the release, Samira’s relocation to Los Angeles brought on the recruit of additional members Matt Hogan (guitar), Justine Brown (bass), and Garren Orr (drums) to create a band that would manifest her ultimate dreams.

The quartet released their first full-length album, Supreme Blue Dream, via Lolipop Records in 2015. The aptly titled album floats on with a youthful sense of nostalgia and romanticized segues into adulthood. Touching on not one, but two languages (English and Portuguese), this bi-lingual group of dreamers do their part to lay us down softly while keeping listeners eager for each tune. Winter aspires to connect others with their inner child by making blissful, beautiful and ethereal pop music.
Mini Blinds
Mini Blinds has been compared to a dreamier version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Formed as a duo in Portland, OR in late 2015. Both Beth Ann Dear (Appendixes) and Devin Welch (Blood Brothers, Shoplifting, Past Lives, Appendixes) have been playing music in the Pacific Northwest in some form for most of their lives. Drawing influences from the 90s female fronted alt-rock, 80s British twee & shoegaze, the Paisley Underground, and K records, they have created a sound with many layers and a common thread. In 2016 they released their first 8 song album “Air Signs”. The songs were bouncy and minimal, held together by layers of analog drum machines. In September 2018 the group released their EP ‘Dust’. It has been said to be a “reintroduction” and a new evolution in the sound of the band. Their sound has become much more dreamy and slightly more melancholy and eerie on their sophomore release. They have already began writing another collection of songs in hopes to release it sometime in late 2019.

Mini Blinds has went on multiple Pacific Northwest tours and plan to do a California and Southwest tour in Spring of 2019. As far as notable shows go they a have played PDXPop, Spokane’s VolumeFest Homiefest, Mississippi Street Fair and with noteworthy bands such as Chastity Belt, Diet Cig, Lisa Prank, Mint Field and Naomi Punk.
