Free Music Weekend! Mount Eerie, Martin Eden, Les Sins, Dog Society, Sallie Ford and the Sound

Mount Eerie

Ocean Roar is perhaps more experimental than the average album. Calling these things "songs" only loosely applies. These are closer to studies in sound, attempts to alter the way the brain experiences its surroundings after being subjected to endless chords, repeating note flurries, stretched drones. It's "psychedelic" in same way as seasickness or vertigo. Warmth and distortion, burning driftwood, 9 months of rain.

Sallie Ford and the Sound

Since 2008, Sallie Ford and The Sound Outside has been intertwining elements of swinging roots rock, country, jazz, and blues with a contemporary lyrical stance and Ford's instantly recognizable voice. The Portland quartet has steadily ascended through the ranks, earning a growing following throughout the Pacific Northwest.
