The Ghost Ease
The Ghost Ease is a Portland rock band that revels within the warm folds of a sort of soft savagery, pin-pricking holes into the fabric of the astral veil.
Created and directed by Jem Murciano, the band is known and loved for producing raw, hypnotic opuses by way of heavy guitars, frenzied drums and lilting vocal timbres.
Jo Passed is the songwriter band project of currently Vancouver based musician, Joseph Hirabayashi. After the breakup of Hirabayashi's band Sprïng in 2015, Joseph assembled material quickly and moved out to Montreal to start a new project in a new city. With the help of Mac Lawrie (Flash Palace, Cult Babies), Jo Passed released a debut EP entitled "Out" on Toronto label Craft Singles.
After returning back to the West Coast in early 2016, Joseph assembled a new lineup of Jo Passed with Bella Mckee on guitar, Spencer Hargreaves on bass, and Daniel Ruiz on drums; released a 2nd EP, "Up" through Los Angeles/Portland label Golden Brown (Lefse Records) and toured the West Coast many times. Since forming in 2015, Jo Passed has performed over 80 shows on both coasts in both Canada and the US. Jo Passed is currently working on a debut full length to be released in in the very near future.
Ah God is heavy art grunge and fuzzed-out psychedelia with a DIY recording ethic. Heavy drum beats are carried to your ears softly and sweetly on the backs of stoney guitar melodies of the utmost sensuality. Straight out of Portland, OR, Ah God freshly emerges from the current scene, coming at you with loud bouquets of floral punk and the fuzzy sweetness you didn't know your life was missing.
