Eyelids
Eyelids
“Scholars of sunshine pop” - Keith Cameron, Mojo

"A whirlwind of tangled acoustic and electric guitars that gets stuck in your head and continues to spin long after the tune is over" – NPR Heavy Rotation

Portland band Eyelids have a collective history creating music for some of the most legendary indie songwriters. Longtime friends and principle songwriters John Moen (Decemberists) and Chris Slusarenko (Guided by Voices, Boston Spaceships) channel their teenage Paisley Underground obsession and love of New Zealand / Flying Nun guitar buzz into a sound they describe as, “sweet melodies and bummer vibes.”

Immediately following sold-out pressings of three 7” and the 2014 full length 854, Eyelids will release a new self-titled EP on June 23 (Jealous Butcher / Schizophonic Records). Produced by Peter Buck, Eyelids will be available digitally and limited edition colored vinyl with a download card featuring three exclusive live videos (including Stephen Malkmus performing “Hey Joe” w/ Eyelids).
Phantom Ships
Phantom Ships
Garage rock based out of Portland, OR. The band is Matt Brown (bladen county records, bunk), Steve Turner (Mudhoney), Evan Railton (blue giant) and Brent Rahja. They just finished their
first album.
Wimps
Wimps
Wimps are a Seattle 3-piece that tear through jaunty neurotic punk songs with well-crafted crack-pop sensibilities.

Wimps formed in 2011, and released a 5 song demo later that year. Though Wimps is a relative new band, Rachel Ratner (vocals/guitar), Matt Nyce (vocals/bass) and Dave Ramm (drums) have been playing music in the Northwest for years in groups including The Intelligence, Meth Teeth, and Butts.

"Wimps are raw power with nothing in the way. It's punk rock the way it use to be; short, sharp and loud " - The Finest Kiss
