Candace
Candace
Candace (formerly known as Is/Is) can be traced back to the summer of 2009 when Sarah Rose (guitar/bass/vocals), Sarah Nienaber (guitar/bass/vocals), and Mara Appel DesLauriers (drums/vocals) came up with the great idea to make music together. The band released the This Happening EP (2010), the “Vowel Movements/Blackest Beat” 7” (2011), their full-length debut, III, in 2012, Is/Is (2014), and a number of singles before announcing their name change to Candace in 2016. New Future, the band’s first official release under the new name, was produced, recorded, and mixed by Neil Weir and Candace at Jackpot! Recording Studio in Portland, Oregon, where the band all lives.

Writing momentum stayed steady following the release of New Future so the band took a trip to Iowa just a few days after Trump was elected to work on some new material. Working with long-time collaborator Neil Weir, at Flat Black Studios, built in an old barn in the middle of nowhere outside of Iowa City, surrounded by corn fields and nothing else, they ate frozen pizza, tracked for 12-hours a day, and then passed out in a loft sleeping area above the studio. Once the songs were done, the band handed the finished material off to Larry Crane at Jackpot! for mixing.

Their latest full-length, New Ruins, was released on March 2, 2018.
Mute Swan
Mute Swan
Experimental Shoegaze band from Tucson, Arizona.
Ah God
Ah God
Ah God is heavy art grunge and fuzzed-out psychedelia with a DIY recording ethic. Heavy drum beats are carried to your ears softly and sweetly on the backs of stoney guitar melodies of the utmost sensuality. Straight out of Portland, OR, Ah God freshly emerges from the current scene, coming at you with loud bouquets of floral punk and the fuzzy sweetness you didn't know your life was missing.
Tender Kid
Tender Kid
Tender Kid is a California native musician and songwriter residing in Portland, OR. Inspired by Lo-fi hip-hop, ambient guitar, and melodic vocals, Michelle’s music could be described as, "Lo-Fi, sad boy bedroom pop." While having worked in LA and Portland with a few different producers and projects over the last few years nothing seemed to fit until she met two local producers through craigslist. For the last year Tender Kid has been working primarily on writing and recording while playing a few shows here and there, but since releasing her first track, Tv Screen back in November has been able to gain some momentum opening up for some of her favorite local Portland bands.
