BoomBox
BoomBox, the electronic work of songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Zion Rock Godchaux, released their latest EP Bits & Pieces in 2016. The new record is a further exploration of the band’s signature sound; an electronic blend
of soulful Rock and Blues based dance music incorporating Backbeat,Psychedelia and Funky House sounds, which Godchaux veraciously refers to as “Dirty Disco Blues.”
Yak Attack
Yak Attack will make you dance. Founded in Portland, OR in 2013, the live electronica quartet has been making waves in the local scene and expanding its fan base regionally in its short history. Rowan Cobb (bass), Dave Dernovsek (keys) and Devin Weston (drums) combine skilled playing with live looping and effects, resulting in expansive sonic terrain and heightened peaks well beyond the capabilities of most live trios. In 2015, the group added Nick Werth (percussion/xylosynth) to the Yak herd. Nick is a fantastic musician and human being who also performs as solo hip-hop/loop artist GALAXE, and has opened up a whole new dimension of sound and live performance elements for the band. Electronic and traditional genres including house, breakbeat, downtempo, jazz, and funk, tight compositions seamlessly blended with improvisation, and frequent contributions from guest musicians define a typical Yak show. The band released its first full-length album in 2015, "Real World Conditions", and will soon be bringing its unique mix of live chops, electronic techniques, and monkey noises to a venue near you.
