Portland’s progressive groove-rock quintet Mars Retrieval Unit returns to The Goodfoot, returning to the homeworld for another exploration of groove and melody.
Expectations are a wild ride with MRU; the band’s influences (and covers) are so diverse as to have included Frank Zappa, Bjork, Stereolab, George Clinton, Pink Floyd, Yes, even Metallica and Rush, to name a few! 15 years of mixing these together provides a unique, unforgettable musical experience.
Rob Sipsky’s soaring guitar melodies combine with Chelsea Luker’s sweet and soulful vocals and saxophone lines, floating effortlessly atop a colorful fabric of foundation shaking lows from Chris Friesen (bass) and Murray Gusseck’s(drums) relentless rhythm, surrounded by soundscapes painted by Alex Weinberg (keyboards), transporting audience and band alike across the solar system to psychedelic places unexplored and yet strangely like home. Do you have what it takes… to rocket into outer space?”
