Hello friends! We have a Portland-centric, SXSW 2018 double-header for you guys today! Julius and Brock from Portland, Oregon's big and crazy Nu-Disco band, Gold Casio came by the apartment while they were here for SXSW 2018! Their brand new e.p. Sinners is out TODAY Friday 4/20! Go to goldcasio.band for tour info, music, videos and more. We have a great conversation about being a gold plated nu-disco band, touring their way down to SXSW, the logistics of keeping a big band on the road, making Sinners and much more! After that, I am joined by Portland country-shoegaze trio, Candace! Their gorgeous new album, New Ruins is out now. The album was recorded in rural Iowa and mixed by the legendary, Larry Crane (The Tape-Op magazing guy). You can find their music, tourdates and more at candaceisaband.com. We have a great conversation about making New Ruins in the aftermath of the 2016 election, the meaning of "country-shoegaze", touring their way down to SXSW 2018, The similarities between Portland and Austin and much, much more! I had a great time getting to know both of these amazingly talented bands. I'm sure you will too. Let's get down!
