"All Your Friend's Friends" collides MCs and far-out DIY

Borrowing samples of other people's music for your own songs was once the most natural thing in the world. I doubt that anyone really thought of the implication that you might end up profiting off of someone else's work - if anything, it might be viewed as a flattering gesture

Comfort food in Tacoma

I awake in the morning to find it is still dark, and the idea of being bright-eyed and bushy-tailed escapes me. The sun hasn't greeted me, and seemingly fails to because when I get off work, it's still dark! While everyone else is marveling over the "extra hour" of sleep

Friday, Nov. 7-Saturday, Nov. 8: The Harvey Girls

There's a slinkiness to the Harvey Girls that damn near undeniable. The Portland trio combines a music history lesson's worth of influences into something that resembles a soul-singing diva fronting an art-pop group from the UK or New Zealand.
