Night Heron on 'Instructions For The Night': 

"This record was made during a time of deep personal upheaval, so the lyrics carry a certain weight, but the music is paradoxically smooth, which I've realized was almost a reflexive defense mechanism; a way to ameliorate the hard stuff. The thing that is really interesting to me is, although the songwriting is so personal, everyone in the band added their own touch that allows the message of the songs to become more universal. I'm always amazed at how subliminal, emotive qualities can be injected into a recording, regardless of intention, just by proxy of who is playing the notes."

Foamboy

Foamboy are a Portland-based pop duo comprised of producer Wil Bakula and vocalist Katy Ohsiek. Wil and Katy worked together for many years in other projects before creating their debut pop album, My Sober Daydream, in 2020 and releasing it in 2021. My Sober Daydream has launched this duo into a new stage of their careers, earning recognition from indie greats including KCRW, Consequence of Sound, and Week in Pop. Foamboy has graced some of Portland’s favorite stages, including Holocene, and Doug Fir Lounge. Listeners can expect jazz-inspired danceable pop with a hyper-personal lyrical edge. 

To follow in the success of their debut album, Foamboy released "Not A Go" in Summer 2022, with a new album coming later in 2023. Audiences will enjoy an extension of their established sound, as it grows into a new, dreamy direction while staying true to its pop roots.
 

Les Gold

Portland indie rock outfit Les Gold was founded by frontman Jenson Tuomi and guitarist  Tim Kaye, and consists of bassist Jake Jarvis, drummer Alexander Geiszler, and lead  guitarist Pete Abraham. The band has cultivated a sound that mixes homegrown  Northwest indie rock with elements of folk rock, dream pop, desert rock, surf, and other  influences. Les Gold showcases catchy, poppy melodies and tones layered over unique  vocal harmonies and often macabre lyrics – crafting a sound that’s been described as  ‘gloom disco’ and ‘bummer fun’. 

As the band has grown and developed their  sound, they’ve stayed true to their roots and remained pioneers of the ‘bummer fun’  genre. With a strong cast and sponsorships from local legends like Benson Amps, 64  Audio, and Secret Aardvark Hot Sauce, the band has continued to grow in popularity – releasing their Sophomore EP ‘The Gloom Room’ in late 2021 and receiving immediate  acclaim from major outlets like Earmilk, Under the Radar, Portland Monthly, and more.  In 2023, Les Gold prepares to release their debut album.
