Portland, Oregon, based instrumental rock band. Originally started as a side project to the members’ various other projects in 2000, the band has put out 12 releases. The band’s sound is psychedelic instrumental post-rock taking a truly global influence. I like the openness to sounds from other places, but the band all too often come out with predictable quiet/loud post-rock – just going through the motions. It’s more “this sounds good” than “this feels good”. It is no coincidence that my favourite album of theirs consists of other people’s songs – 2005’s ‘Interpretations Of Three Psychedelic Rock Songs From Around The World’.
