Tender Age, The Dandelyons and American Cream


Valentines (map) Downtown
Sun., Dec. 8, 9 p.m. 2013 21+

If you're looking for a warm and cozy escape from the cold, Valentine's has got you covered. Portland quartet Tender Age released a self-titled EP a month back that offers a great sampling of their haunting blend of shoegaze. With three tracks clocking in at nearly 15 minutes, there's plenty of room to be lured into the band's hazy, dream-like world, and with an opening track as hypnotic as "Anything," it should only take a few moments. Light and airy vocals twist around a blissed-out guitar riff, while layers of heavy reverb and steady percussion keep it all from drifting too far off. The Dandelyons take a more traditional rock approach.  On "Sunny," the opening track of their debut album, Flowers 'n' Dirt, they ride a moment of carefree pop that could bring visions of summer into even the most darkened barroom.
