Floater
Floater
Floater, from Portland, Oregon, has received two preliminary Grammy nominations, toured the USA and Canada, and recently released their most critically acclaimed record to date, "Stone By Stone."

With intense and unforgettable live performances, Floater continues to sell out some of the largest concert halls across the west. Both electric and acoustic performances have swollen their concert attendance over the past several years.

Their sound includes elements of rock, psychedelia, reggae, pop and even jazz and is wholly original.

They have been described in the press as "The nearest American thing to perfection" and "One of the greatest power trios in modern music." Their fan base has grown over the years to a fever pitch and Floater fans are legendary for their dedication.
The Breaking
The Breaking
The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a stronghold of alternative rock, although Portland's relatively recent rise to 'cultural mecca' has created something of a faddish scene that barely resembles its roots. Nonetheless, The Breaking - a band of 90's-raised Northwesterners from the Rose City - still carry the torch that illuminated their upbringing. Their debut self-titled LP is a testament to the depth of that artistic heritage.

The Breaking challenges convention in a way that earns the group an edge and authenticity. The songs are deliberate and gripping, and the band uses their contradicting influences to great advantage. Front-man Adam Sweeney's penchant for brooding minor-key introspection collides with lead guitarist Tim Karplus' affinity for mainstream pop hooks, while bassist Rick Bouvette ties it all together with a punchy low end. The band crafts original songs with mass appeal that remain firmly rooted in the alt rock tradition of the Cascadian glory days.

At once original and strikingly familiar, their debut LP is reminiscent of early Radiohead, R.E.M., Oasis and U2's Achtung Baby.

With two exploratory EPs under their belts, the band has landed on their definitive sound and channeled it into a debut full-length record, released in 2017. The Breaking has been bringing their energy-infused live shows to venues around the west coast from their native Portland, Oregon.

The band rounds out their work with frequent collaborators on recordings and live shows, with producer Rian Lewis (D.R.A.M., Priory) and drummers Mark Powers (M. Ward, Robert Wynia, Haley Johnsen), Cheo Larcombe (March Forth), Alexandra Geffel (Skull Diver, The Cabin Project), and Ben Kent (Ghosts I've Met).
Weep Wave
Weep Wave
WEEP WAVE was formed in 2016 in Seattle, WA where the band quickly became known for their lo-fi recordings, flashy shows, DIY attitude and strange noises. WEEP WAVE is Dylan Fuentes (Guitar/Vocals), Colton Harold (Keyboards), Dylan Trujillo (Bass) and recently Van Wolf (Drums). WEEP WAVE recently got back from a 3 week west coast tour, opened up for PUP at Neumos and back in June played a show sponsored by KEXP and 107.7 The End opening for White Reaper and Ron Gallo at The Tractor Tavern.
