Now that KEXP’s PDXplore live concert series has had its inaugural Portland concert I decided to turn my attention to what’s new on the block in town. As you may know the idea for PDXplore is to introduce Portland bands to Seattle and vise versa by hosting concerts in each city with support from KEXP. Coincidentally I put together a podcast each week here at Pampelmoose.com that gives listeners a chance to hear what’s best from the Portland underground, and occasionally, overground local music scene.
This weeks podcast features the clattering blips and beats of Dj Tan’t, the somewhat progressive and orchestral new music from Menomena, the indie pop of The Shaky Hands who release their debut CD in April, the lo-fi world music of Solo Dos En Tijuana, brand new electronic-influenced rock from Stars of Track and Field and some fine sparkling indie rock from The Joggers. As always, support your local artists by clicking the links and buying their music.
