[PSYCH-POP] Technicolor avant-pop wizards Nurses might be Portland’s most mercurial band. Every few years, the group emerges with an album of off-kilter confections built upon increasingly sturdy grooves and bright instrumentation, plays a few shows, then disappears, presumably to work on the next one. Its last record, 2011’s Dracula, was densely layered yet wide open, employing the reverb-doused expansiveness of dub, but minus the haze and conjuring the feeling of floating through an ocean of rainbows. And it was the best album to come out of Portland that year. This show is their last of 2013, which hopefully means there’s another collection on the horizon.
