Miss Rayon
Miss Rayon
Portland, Oregon’s Miss Rayon was started by Eric Sabatino as a solo recording project, but soon after putting the finishing touches on a three-song demo, Sabatino recruited bassist Jenny Logan and drummer Hannah Blilie to form a fully fledged trio. Between them, the members of Miss Rayon have done time in The Gossip, Summer Cannibals, Vexations and Deathlist, among others. Residing somewhere on the spectrum between New York no wave and UK post-punk, Miss Rayon’s sound is a squirrely and sidewinding thing. One can hear traces of Sonic Youth and Magazine in the band’s recordings, but there’s nothing nostalgic about Miss Rayon. This is music for a dark future in which dreams break into real life and dance parties descend into madness. Miss Rayon recently released a three song ep with a limited edition flexi disc vinyl, and are now working on a full length album.
The Fur Coats
The Fur Coats
The Fur Coats are a psych-soul-pop band from Portland, Oregon fronted by American sweethearts Chris Karl and Betty. Their lineup includes members of Wampire, Charlie Hilton and Reptaliens.

A swaggering live act, The Fur Coats have gained considerable local following since their inception some five years ago. Following the self-release of their EP, Desperate, the band has been getting regular local radio play, was featured on the PDX POP NOW! compilation and music festival, and toured Europe in the Spring of 2017. They recently impressed NPR with their Tiny Desk Contest entry and were reviewed on the All Songs Considered blog. The Fur Coats just released a series of three singles, conceptualized in shifting the collective perspective from dark to light. Look for the full EP, titled “Mirror Gazing”, scheduled to be released Summer of 2018!

“The Portland-based band captures the unbridled yearning of new, lost and long-distance love — every kind of love in between.” — Katie Anastas, NPR

“[‘We Live’ is] a slow-building lounge song with an accompanying video that’s a little more sparkly than their previous efforts, but still perfectly captures the Coats’ knack for blending the best of traditional rock and soul with the arty and strange visions of songwriters Chris Hoganson and Betty Downey.” –Mark Lore, The Portland Mercury

“The entire band brings their A Game every single time they perform, and it’s beginning to pay off. Their positive energy and warm personalities are infectious. The room sways to the beat…” –Scott Hammond, host for Radio Hot Tub on Freeform Portland

“But whether snake charming, ganja or meditation ... in the end the purest antidote to stress can help the music of THE FUR COATS that hits the right note between increased self-awareness and consciousness-raising experience.” – The Underdog Fanzine (translated from German)
