Mississippi Studios and Xray.fm present the beloved, reunited percussive art-rock trio from Portland with brand new songs.
At a time when the prevailing image of Portland music was of sad dudes crying into their banjos, three women playing dubbed-out punk funk took the city’s basements by ecstatic force. Formed in 2008, the trio—two-thirds percussion, one-part baritone guitar, with occasional ghostly melodica and vocals consisting mostly of heavily reverbed whoops and yelps—neither looked nor sounded like any other band in town. The group grabbed the scene’s attention immediately. In 2009, it upset NPR darlings Blind Pilot to top Willamette Week’s annual Best New Band poll, and signed to Kill Rock Stars for an anticipated full-length debut.” -Willamette Week
