With A Little Help
The 2015 edition of PDX Pop Now! Another great collection of Oregon bands from pop, to rap, to folk, to instrumental, lots of good stuff on here. It is a 2 disk set, so I gave it 2 keys and 2 separate reviews to make finding tracks easier.|
Disc 1 FCCs: 8, 18
Recommended from Disc 1: 1, **3**, 4, **6**, 12, 14, 19, 21
1. (4:37) *This is what I wish the new Surfer Blood record sounded like, great track, great sound, easy listening.
2. (1:19) Garage rock, choppy, simple, good track, not great.
3. (3:32) **AMAZING!! This girl’s voice is incredible, simple melody, 3. infectious, great instrumentation, yeah one of my favorites.
4. (3:35) *Simple alt-rock track, mid tempo, piano, distorted guitar, bongos and maracas, i actually really like this one too.
5. (2:56) Mid tempo rock track, nothing unbelievable but another solid song.
6. (4:38) ** Girl group, think dum dum girls, or pipettes. Awesome song, another of my favorites.
7. (3:25) Electronic sound, soulful female vocals, almost disco-y.
8. (3:27) FCC FUCKING Another awesome girl group, similar to track 6, love it, mid tempo retro feel, unfortunately it is also profane.
9. (3:25) strange lyrics, super distorted, almost reminds me of Ween.
10. (3:47) Another dreamy indie girl band.
11. (6:05) Instrumental track, cool instrumentation.
12. (3:48) * Super cool track, interesting female voice, certainly not generic. Lots of awesome polyrhythms and cool instrumentation. Mid tempo and very pretty.
13. (4:19) This is pretty awful, sounds like indie rock tries to do disco…yeah no good.
14. *(2:26) Vintage King Tuff feel.
15. (2:26) Lo-fi, great melody.
16. (2:55) Girl punk.
17. (4:06)Blue eyed neo-soul.
18. (3:10) FCC FUCK Really good hip-hop track, can’t play it though.
19. * (5:26) Soulful female vocals, piano driven, cool melody. Instrumentation almost reminds me of a track from Hunky Dory.
20. (3:32) Dramatic, feels like a song from an old western movie.
21. (3:42) * This could have come out of the Rocky Horror Picture Show…it is awesome, super weird but really good.
