Who ever said that only featuring Portland-based music was too narrow a scope for LocalCut? Not national music website Stereogum
, who this week chose Portland's own mellow indie-pop duo Nire as their "Band to Watch."
Here's just a sample of what they had to say:
Erin Morgan and Josh Hinton's debut full-length Vespers barely moves above the hush you'll hear on standout, key-lined, end-of-summer track "Wide Eyed Restless." Totally fitting as the days get shorter, the nights chillier, the leaves keep dying.
To top it all off, Stereogum linked to Nire's tour diary on LocalCut
, suggesting it as a quick-fix for Nire addicts who can't until Tuesday for Vespers
to be released. Lucky for Portlanders, Nire plays here at the Sound Judgement Festival
, tomorrow at 4 pm at the Green House.
