HAIM - Forever
[Columbia Records] 

3 sisters, one goal: create timeless R&B/rock hits.  The title track is my favorite song of the year.  -T

ROMCOM / Magic Fades - Split CS
[Romcom Records]

For fans of Twin Peaks and waiting on hold.  This split collaboration samples from places we miss.  If you don’t like the EP artwork, you won’t like the music.  FYI, first half is Magic Fades, second half is ROMCOM.   -T

Radiation City - Cool Nightmare
[Tender Loving Empire]

A warm, classic sound, sweet vocals, hooks that are catchy as hell, and a killer live show. Look these kids up when in Portland.   -J

Radiation City Cool Nightmare

Pure Bathing Culture - Pure Bathing Culture
[Father/Daughter Records] 

Sarah Versprille’s voice is given the perfect amount of space by Daniel Hindman’s smooth guitar work. Together they create some beautiful and dreamy melodies perfect for bath time.   -J
