Pure Bathing Culture
Daniel Hindman and Sarah Versprille began writing songs together in 2009 while living in Brooklyn, NY. In 2011, the duo packed up their lives, moved to Portland, OR and realized that it was time to put a name to the batch of songs they'd been working on -- Pure Bathing Culture was born. Through various serendipitous connections, multi-instrumentalist and producer Richard Swift (Secretly Canadian) heard their early demos and immediately invited them to record with him at his National Freedom Studio in Cottage Grove, OR. The fruits of this recording session comprise their self-titled EP, an elegant collection of four beautiful songs, constructed with smooth melodies embodying the nostalgia of soft soulful 80s pop but with a freshness all of their own.
Dorian Duvall is Onuinu. He's been crafting electro pop in Portland, OR for the past few years where the music community has been watching and waiting for this,his first full length album Mirror Gazer. Up til now there's been a release on an Ape Tapes compliation and a video for the catchy "Ice Palace" replete with kaleidoscopic, melted visuals – directed by Andrew Sloan (Tender Loving Empire).
Dorian, a multi-instrumentalist, wrote and produced the album. Jeremy Sherrer (the Gossip, Dandy Warhols, Hockey) co-produced, recorded/mixed the record and played drums.
Dorian calls the music Disco-Hop and is easy to cite influences like: Yellow Magic Orchestra, Michael Jackson, the Brainfeeder Crew and Stones Throw Records. The giant chorus of opening track Mirror Gazer, the 70's shimmer of Happy Home, and the roller rink ready Always Awkward, point to his foundation in the disco, power pop and hip hop worlds.
Magic Mouth is a rock and roll/funk band born in a basement in Portland, Oregon in 2010.
They are Stefphon Bartee-Smith on vocals/cowbell, Ana Briseno on drums, Peter Condra on guitar/vocals, and Brendan Scott on bass. They are young, electric, party butch queens.
In 2012, after a successful number of live shows and gaining press, they released a 5-song EP entitled, "Believer", and were asked to join a nationwide tour opening for GOSSIP. They have played shows with SSION, MEN and HOLCOMBE WALLER and have been featured in MAGNET MAGAZINE, VICE MAGAZINE and TOM TOM MAGAZINE.
They are currently playing shows all over the Pacific Northwest and working on multiple recording and video projects and preparing to record their first full length album.
