The Loved Album Release Show with The Minders and Bitches Of The Sun

The Loved

Portland, Oregon-based trio the Loved believe in the simple power of three chords and the truth.

Lael Alderman’s assured vocals are undergirded by muscular yet sparse arrangements. The band alternates between melodic singer/songwriter moments and propulsive rock. Daven Hall’s incisive bass lines and the tight rhythmic wizardry of Jake Endicott on drums evoke influences as diverse as Elvis Costello, Guided by Voices, The Rolling Stones, Ryan Adams and The Smiths.

The Minders

The indie pop group, The Minders, was formed in Denver, Colorado in 1995 by Martyn Leaper and Robert Schneider (Apples in Stereo). The band started out as a recording project with Robert Schneider producing the first single (Build) which was released in early 1996 on the Elephant 6 imprint. The Minders quickly became a live act, with Joel Richardson on bass, Rebecca Cole (Wild Flag) on drums, and Jeff Almond on lead guitar; a follow-up single (Paper plane)was released later in 1996, wherethe band quickly gained popularity as a new member of the growing elephant six collective. The Minders would release four singles before delivering their first full-length album, Hooray for Tuesday, in1998 on SpinArt records.The Minders sound has evolved over the years. From its simple garage origins, the group has grown to incorporate complex arrangements that harken back to the heady days of nineteen sixties and seventies baroque pop music.Since 1998, the Mindershave resided in Portland, Oregon andhave released six records, each of whichhastackled different styles in pop and new wave.

Bitches Of The Sun

Bitches of the Sun is Portland based band fronted by artist/musician Joshua Davis. The collective is best described as Delta Sex Pop delivering a large selection of body shaking grooves wrapped in emotionally complex arrangements guaranteed to everyone on the dance floor.
