MaitaLyrically driven Portland indie-rock
Portland indie-rock artist MAITA’s "focused, American realist psalm...sets her far apart from her indie contemporaries (American Standard Time).” Her two 2018 singles display opposing sides of her personality, from “Japanese Waitress” (feat. on Tender Loving Empire’s Friends of Friends comp), comprised of a "sobering melody" and "deeply personal storytelling" that "calls both Sufjan Stevens and Joni Mitchell to mind (NPR)", to 'Kid Anymore', a "perfect 2 minute pop rock song" (Vortex).

Adrian H And The WoundsAdrian H and The Wounds
ADRIAN H AND THE WOUNDS are your post-goth storytellers. The immediate reference to their dark, brooding music with lyrics of great narrative power and poetic bent, draw to mind references such as NICK CAVE, GARY NUMAN, and LOU REED. However, they are eclectic enough to keep up. It would be better and more exact just to say that they’ve blended and absorbed all of their influences and out came with their own superb poignant dark-wave style. Adrian H and The Wounds have a sound that is sinfully soulful and reminiscent of a night in a darkroom full of hallucinations, secrets and song. Adrian's voice and lyrics cut like a straight edge. He evokes impassioned stories of tragic love, lost faith, and twisted taboos.
