Sharkmouth is a dank, small batch rock n roll Organ trio from Santa Rosa, Ca. Taylor "libby" cuffie plays drums, Nate Dittle plays the organ, and Joshua James Jackson plays bass. Give these boys a chance, and they'll have you dancing, screaming and smiling. What more could you ask for?
The Breaking
The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a stronghold of alternative rock, although Portland's relatively recent rise to 'cultural mecca' has created something of a faddish scene that barely resembles its roots. Nonetheless, The Breaking - a band of 90's-raised Northwesterners from the Rose City - still carry the torch that illuminated their upbringing. Their debut self-titled LP is a testament to the depth of that artistic heritage.

The Breaking challenges convention in a way that earns the group an edge and authenticity. The songs are deliberate and gripping, and the band uses their contradicting influences to great advantage. Front-man Adam Sweeney's penchant for brooding minor-key introspection collides with lead guitarist Tim Karplus' affinity for mainstream pop hooks, while bassist Rick Bouvette ties it all together with a punchy low end. The band crafts original songs with mass appeal that remain firmly rooted in the alt rock tradition of the Cascadian glory days.
