Slow Corpse
Slow Corpse
Slow Corpse was born out of the misty forests and craggy mountains of Southern Oregon in the fall of 2015. The group is the brain child of singer/producer Mitchell Winters, and guitarist Brenton Clarke. Both artists come from completely different musical backgrounds--Winters as the golden boy of Soundcloud, where he releases electronic music as PALMCO, and Clarke as a hard blues and shoegaze informed, one-man-musical-tour-de-force on the guitar. Rather than at odds with one another, their musical identities meld into a surreal blend of clean production and driving, yet dreamy melodies. Upon the release of their first two EP’s, Hound and Moons, Slow Corpse added multi-instrumentalist Cole Zollinger (Bass), hip-hop producer Dash Curtis (Keys), and Kelvin Underwood (drums) to their roster to create a live band which has brought them seemingly effortless success as a touring group. In the fall of 2017 they signed to indie label, Tender Loving Empire, where they join the ranks of indie darlings Andy Shauf, Y La Bamba, and Typhoon. You can find them making regular jaunts through the Northwest or bunkered down in Ashland, Oregon where they curate a magnetic and thriving DIY art/skate/music scene.
The Hugs
The Hugs
"Sometimes a band puts out a release that just captures life in a snapshot – the highs, the lows, the anguish, the pain, and of course all the good stuff that makes life worth living. 'Feelings of Life' is one such record -- where Portland band, The Hugs, wrap you with open arms into their soundscape. This trippy psychedelic post-pop opus is filled with anthemic beats and rich harmonies taking you on a journey that is warm, a little exploratory, familiar, and full of great tunes. Much like life itself, The Hugs encompass the feelings felt on this shared journey."

"Celebrating 10 years as a band in 2017, The Hugs are back with a new e.p. in early 2018. In November 2016 the band revealed it's revamped roster featuring guitarist Jack Burgess out of London, UK, Bassist Kauri Voss out of Chicago, and drummer Keagan O'brien out of Detroit, all joining lead vocalist, Danny Delegato, the founding member and Portland-native. New E.P. "New Utopia" releases Feb 14th, 2018. "
Dim Wit
Dim Wit
Portland duo Dim Wit are Jeff Tuyay (vocals, guitar) and Tyler Verigan (drums). Taking cues from the colorful, spastic rock from bands like Deerhoof, Dim Wit play a brand of punk-y indie that is as funny and off-kilter as it is sad and angry. Known around their hometown of Portland, Oregon for their eccentric and energetic live shows (the duo decked out in lab coats and wigs as "clown doctors"), the band self-released their first record in early 2017, an 11 song document on (sub)urban alienation and modern anxieties.
