The Softies
The Softies, comprised of Rose Melberg and Jen Sbragia, embody timeless themes of friendship and self-discovery through their minimalist pop soundworld. Since their formation in 1994, they've created uncluttered and fearlessly vulnerable music, contrasting with prevailing trends. The Bed I Made, The Softies’ first new studio album in 24 years, showcases growth while reflecting on life's complexities with lyrics drawn from real experiences. Despite individual pursuits and personal losses, Melberg and Sbragia reunite, channeling grief and rejuvenation into an album that captures the essence of their enduring friendship and offers hope and renewal amid life's challenges. Through their perfectly-paired harmonies and telepathic playing, they navigate the present, past, and future, offering a poignant continuation of their musical legacy, resonating like time spent with an old friend who knows you best.

New Issue

Having released 2 LPs and a handful of tapes under various names (most prominently Hungry Cloud Darkening);  Nicholas, Allyson, and Paul continue their evolution (correction: exploration) as a deeply collaborative recording project who sometimes tour—  with blips of personnel overlap with fellow PNW island based musics Mount Eerie and LAKE.  The name “New Issue” points at the band’s shapeshifting method and taste and the ongoing need for problem-solving--  it’s the life-giving dynamic found when the 3 are writing/recording in Nich’s studio ‘the Unknown’ which serves as the band’s home-realm. 

Phone Voice

Phone Voice is the bedroom rock project of Chitra Subrahmanyam based out of Portland, OR. They write from the depths where softness meets abrasion, shadows twist into light, and one waits for the storm each day while wondering why the calm never came.
