Pheasant, the Hugs

[INDIE ROCK] While Pheasant’s debut full-length, Black Field, blends the oh-so-common Northwest fixings of guitars, horns and casually sung vocals into an archetypal mixture of upbeat melodic tracks and nostalgic ballads—but there’s still something intriguing about the Portland band. Weary of lingering around one particular style for too long, whether it’s bouncing electric-guitar numbers like the album’s title track or lilting trumpet-driven tunes like “Kid + Hammer,” the group pushes its sound around just enough to keep listeners engaged throughout the record. Perhaps the most likable songs, and the most fun to witness live, are those that put a beat in your feet and make you want to sing along during those infrequent moments when frontman Matt Jenkins really lets his voice go.
