Tango Alpha Tango
Original, adventurous, and contemplative rock n' roll from Portland, OR, by Nathan Trueb (guitar/vocals), Mirabai Carter (bass), and Joey Harmon (drums).
"Tango Alpha Tango isn't the band it once was. The tried-and-true riffage and raw psychedelia, once the cornerstones of singer-guitarist Nathan Trueb's particular brand of blues, have recently given way to a more pop-friendly kind of rock, as evident on the band's latest release, White Sugar. Songs like "I Gotta Girl" and the title track showcase familiar distortion and chugging electric guitar, though the rest are more polished and subdued. "People," for instance, has a carnivalesque design that banks on a lofty chorus and drummer Joey Harmon's fills, while "Lonely" takes a more soulful approach to heartbreak before turning to chiming guitars and an accepting mentality that echos Tom Petty's comeback album, Wildflowers. Trueb's bright guitar work is tighter than ever throughout, lined with fluttering bits of jazz and improvisation that build upon his subtle interplay with his wife, Mirabai, and Harmon. "I'll take you anyway I please/You might be the last thing that I need," he sings over the spare backdrop and gently plucked guitar of "Gasoline." He might be getting softer, but his music is better for it." --- BW Willamette Week
Marshall Poole
Southern psych-rock with experimental explorations from Boise, ID by Melanie Radford (bass/vox), Rider Soran (guitar/vox), Seth Graham (keys/guitar), and Michael Hoobery (percussion).
"Marshall Poole isn’t a person; it’s a four-piece rock ’n’ roll outfit that originated out of the Boise suburbs at a New Year’s party in 2011. While the band is most certainly from Idaho, much of the music of their late-2015 release Totems is full of grizzly psychedelic Southern rock licks. It’s music that speaks to your soul while also slapping you in the face.” --- The Inlander
Friends W/O Benefits
Friends W/O Benefits are a SF based political punk duo. They've been voted most hated band in the city by their peers.
