The CRY! Make Us Smile

In the name of Bash the Father, Bash the Son, and Bash the Holy Ghost, Amen.


This young Portland band’s introductory email got right to the point:

“We are the Best New Powerpop band in the world and we are taking over see. To prove it to you mugs we are giving you a free download of our new Album.”

Right, okay, we get that kind of thing all the time. It makes us kinda skeptical. We go through shakers and shakers of salt. But guess what: they deliver. The kids are more than all right: they’re terrific. Our mugs went into smile mode.


By this point, you're probably already starting to make up your own mind, maybe someone else's even. Whatever, don't stop now. Go to their Reverb Nation and official Bandsite pages to learn and play some more. You'll be glad you did. Everything we could tell you here is waiting for you there, so why waste time? OMB, they played IPO! Nuff sed.

@Johnny & Anony: I'm glad to hear you like them, too, and that they bring it live. They've got talent, savvy, and attitude and seem to be plotting their moves very well.
