Disco Volante

 

Disco Volante is a band from Portland, OR, formed in 2014 by Portland State University students Joel Buckle, Thomas Guerena, Jordan Dardis and Jayme Rogers. Their sound pays homage to the post-punk genre of the 80's and its revival in the early aughts. However, Disco Volante breaks into a tangent of their own by blending 60's pop elements with expressive film score inspired arrangements. The result is a cinematic sound that naturally gravitates toward the film noir.

Rock

Ted Marengos

English Translation:

The band Formed in 2011, Ted Marengos was born from the union of ideas and inclusions of the brothers Júlio Starace (vocals and guitar), Luiz Pimentel (bass) and Thomaz Ayres (drums). In 2014, the band released their first album, First Prints, which won countless shows by Brazil and internationally. As early as 2017, Ted Marengos presented his second album, Lifts. With more organic sound and recorded on analogue tape in New York, the material entered in several lists of best of the year and yielded the classification of more interesting retro band of the times, according to the Roling Stones Magazine, with evaluation equal to 4 of 5 stars. 2019 is the year of the release of Timeless Beat, the band's third album.

Rock

The Dark Backward

 

The Dark Backward is...   Three hopeless romantics raised on good literature and horror movies. A 4/4 elemental giant with mountainwalk and trample. A group of cosmonauts tripping the light fantastic as agents for Panoptic Miscellany. Tequila-fueled hardcore dancing on hardwood floors. A 1991 satirical comedy film starring Judd Nelson and Bill Paxton. A trio of artistic activists dedicated to bringing life back to music. That feeling when you step off a roller coaster. A rock and roll band.   The Dark Backward plays original compositions of honest, emotional music that make audiences shake their skeletons and exorcise their demons. The band plays rock and roll that incorporates all musical genres, including blues, jazz, punk, pop, and electronic.    The Dark Backward was founded by Jordan Ryker Daniel and Alex Marble, formerly of the Denver based rock band Jane Lane. Daniel and Marble moved to Portland in July 2010, seeking to expand their sound. The duo desperately resorted to posting to Craigslist, pleading for a rock and roll drummer to contact them. Phillip Walsh, recently transplanted from Alaska, answered the call. He joined the band after one audition.   Since 2011, the three members of The Dark Backward have developed an unmistakable, explosive sound and a chemistry with each other that has them prepared to play their loud, proud, colorful, and in-your-face music live. The band has dutifully shaken the walls in claustrophobic house shows, musky dive bars, scholastic non-profit halls, co-op parking lots, and even a few credible venues around the streets of Portland, Oregon.    Raised on a strong DIY mentality, The Dark Backward have built and operated Equimix Studios out of their home base in Northeast Portland for the past three years. They have booked over 200 of their own shows; regularly design and screen-print their own merchandise; and do all of their own local management.   The Dark Backward are also co-founders of Foul Is Fair Productions, a local award-winning filmmaking troupe which has participated in various film festivals. They have also provided live music for plays, comedy shows, and various other local artistic gatherings.   As of 2019 the band has been hunkered down at Equimix, preparing a fresh full-length for audiophiles. Though recording has been staggered through playing shows, scoring movies, and designing new merch; the new album is anticipated to release in late 2019.
