Long Hallways
Long Hallways
Formed in 2012, Long Hallways is an instrumental post-rock band based in Portland. Inspired by exploration and expression, Long Hallways writes and performs songs with diversely influenced character that feature intricate bass lines, ascending guitar melodies, and layered keys with electronic embellishments. Their first seven track album, "Live from Dystopia", was released in Dec, 2013.
Volcanic Pinnacles
Volcanic Pinnacles is a Portland duo that creates dense clouds of ambient, melodic, and grooving sound. Drawing inspiration from the likes of spiritual jazz (Pharoah Sanders, John Coltrane) as well as avant garde and post rock pioneers (Can, Colin Stetson, Do Make Say Think), the duo bridges the gap between free jazz, post rock, psychedelic rock, and world rhythms. Saxophone player Tony Mowe utilizes electronics to push his instrument into innovative territory, creating a deep droning wave of melody, while drummer Mark Musselman sculpts the sound into shifting polyrhythmic layers. Volcanic Pinnacles is based in St. Johns.
Gazelle(s)
With a tendency towards dramatic shifts and an approach rooted in restlessness, Eugene, Oregon’s Gazelle(s) brand of instrumental rock is one without boundaries. “There’s No One New Around You” shifts from moments of elegiac ambience to menacing doom. Sorrowful violin melodies, pummeling guitar textures, and pounding bass and drums interweave, creating a sonic carpet structured in a 4/4 foundation that is suddenly pulled from beneath your feet. Their intriguing time changes create a free fall into a solitary darkened void, out of which emerges something beautiful and sanguine.

Gazelle(s)’ debut album comes after two years of playing shows and refining their sound. Individually, the members of Gazelle(s) are no stranger to the stage, having opened for bands like Mono, Toro Y Moi, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and Minus the Bear. When it came time to put their hard work to tape, Gazelle(s) traveled to world-renowned studio Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree, CA to immerse themselves in the desert and experience how a studio with such a rich sonic history would galvanize their music. The resulting LP, “There’s No One New Around You,” takes the isolating feelings one experiences in the desert, and imbues them with a vastness and power that comes from four players ready to pour years of touring and experience into something new and distinctive.
