HOUNDSTOOTH   LOST LANDER  VIKESH KAPOOR
PWRHAUS  NEAL MORGAN



“The Traveling Tapes – Portland” turned out to be a 40-minute
video-mixtape featuring some of the best talent Portland has to offer at
this time. Alela Diane performs a stunningly intimate, gripping version
of “Lost Land” on the porch of her house. Radiation City brighten a
shadowy appletree-garden with their jazzy, supersmooth blend of
harmony-heavy folk. Barna Howard charms a sunny afternoon in Rose Garden
with the longing beauty of the calm fingerpicking-tune “Lend Me A
Moment”. Extraordinary drummer and lyricist Neal Morgan chips in with
his unique spoken word poetry, performed in famous Tonalli’s Donut-Shop
on Alberta-Street. Lost Lander give proof of the band’s very special
chemistry and sense of catchiness while Ben Darwish of Morning Ritual
croons a heartbreaking R’n’B-lamento in his studio at Falcon Art
Community. Vikesh Kapoor contributes his gentrification-ballad “Ode To
My Hometown” right off Mississippi-Street, PWRHAUS jump on a streetcar
for an unusual live-performance of “Broken Man” and Houndstooth deliver
“Emilia” of their current Album “No News From Home” with tequila-fueled
intensity.
