Bodies of Water

This band has been growing on me all week. I first saw this video premier several days ago and though I still find it somewhat hoaky the song backing it up is solid gold.

Check em out.

Lenka livens up Portland

Music and drinks on a Tuesday night? Hell yeah.

Gabe Dixon from Nashville's The Gabe Dixon Band opened for Lenka at the Doug Fir Lounge at 9:00 PM.

The songstress and her band played for about an hour. Her breathy, pitch-perfect voice sounds amazing when she's singing her cute lyrics. Her music sounds fun, poppy and alternative.

But when she talks? It was worth showing just to hear her marvelous Australian accent. She claims that Portland is her favorite city and she'd love to move here. Some enthusiastic crowd members suggested that she could live with them. Lenka would be a great addition to the Portland music scene but for now we'll just have to wait and see.
