Tapping into the more experimental side of the European neo-psych/art rock of the 70's, Eternal Tapestry broaden the psych palette. Theirs is an often droningly transcendental sound that's not just a pastiche of old influences but a radical melting-down in which the music remains reminiscent of the hoary past but sounds strangely new as well.
WL's driving, spectral sound is a collaboration between singer & bassist Misty Mary, guitarist Michael Yun, and drummer Stevie Sparks. The band formed in the lush drunken green of Portland, Oregon when Yun and Sparks, transplants from Detroit, met Mary who had recently moved from Big Sur. Surprised they were neighbors, they set up shop in a cemented basement and began recording their songs live to tape, releasing their debut Impermanent 7″. WL have completed their first full length album Hold– fraying, distorted guitar and thunderous, driving rhythms create droned out, satiating compositions, Mary's saturnine vocals blossoming into airy chrysalis over the surface. Hold was released digitally and on cassette in 2013.
Feel Young is a five piece rock 'n' roll band residing in Portland, OR. They attempt to play music similar in feeling to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, but may in fact be a Neil Young cover band. They remain undefeated.
