Top Bands from the Year End Open Submission

I was excited to see so many local bands that I love had submitted their music to be reviewed for our Year End Poll (see right), but what excited me even more was seeing who came out on top once the reviewing process was over (see here for more details on the reviewing process). The post-indie stylings of Rare Monk, hook driven songs written by Just Lions, progressive musical experiments conducted by Sama Dams and the dreamscapes that only Soft Shadows can create deserve inclusion in our Best of 2013 list as much as any band nominated by our jurors. Be sure to check these bands out and vote for your favorites here. - Benjamin Toledo

Soft Shadows Record Release at Bunk Bar 10.29

If you’re new to the Portland shoegaze scene allow me to introduce you to a band that’s quickly moving to it’s forefront, Soft Shadows. This dreamy trio balances quiet vocal melodies with electronic drumbeats and reverberating guitar tones that, at times, roar into a spaced-out screams that can be heard in lo-fi clarity on their aptly-named new release, Reverb is for Lovers. The full length album captures a moving tone through it’s minimal arrangement and complex array of tonal soundscapes, yet still retains a pop element that can make an entranced listener lift their head and break into an energetic dance. Soft Shadows will be celebrating the release of Reverb is for Lovers tonight at Bunk Bar with Appendixes and Wishyunu, you can also stream Reverb is for Lovers in its entirety on their bandcamp page. - Benjamin Toledo
