reate a sound that was inherently nostalgic but also, at the time, anyway, entirely unusual.At the time, he says, I was going for a very specific sound. And its funny, because its a sound that you hear so much nowadaysbands have this recording aesthetic thats very, very lo-fi and almost exactly what I was doing back then, but I was doing it with machinery that was meant to do that as opposed tobands now, who are doing it with modern digital plug-ins. At the time, I was just making what Id like to hear and I didnt know if anyone else will like it. It sounds old and distortedthe sound Id hear in my head when riding my bike around town at 2 in the morning. Those days (and nights) may have faded into the past, but theyre very much present within the fabric of Furr. A decade on, they sound just as magical and mystical. Not, of course, that the band is just relying on the past glory of this record. Far from it. A decade on from the release of Furr, has released five more critically acclaimed and achingly beautiful records. The band hasnt loosened its ambitions, either. In 2017, the band put together Wild And Reckless a full-production theater event that ran for a month at Portlands Center Stage theater and which also spawned last years full-length of the same name. There are plenty of plans for the future in the works, too. But for now, just for a little while, its time to revel in the joy and sorrow of a time and place that no longer existsexcept of course, in a few hearts and minds, and in these wonderfully wistful songs.
