Jesse's Spring Favorites

Dogheart - Yeah No For Sure
Another great pop album (no. 5!) by this underrated Portland band. I dig their bummed-in-the-sun vibe.

Divers - Live from the Banana Stand
For a brief moment, Divers ruled Portland. Great to have a testament to those awesome shows.

Sego - Sego Sucks
Full of fun, inventive hooks and slackidaisical observations reminiscent of early Beck.

Big Quiet - Interesting Times
Awesome indie pop. Imagine the Bangles signed to Sarah Records.

Layperson - The Divide
Such a beautiful album. Reminds me a bit of the Pernice Brothers.

Months - REX
Spitting political fire wrapped in propulsive, noisy riffs. Cathartic and necessary.

Luther Russell - Medium Cool
O my soul! Come for the Big Star love, stay because this some of the finest powerpop songwriting you'll hear this year.
Live! Friday, June 7th @ Star Theater
