If Portland were a rap group, it would be TxE. Thoughtful words, sweet, nostalgic samples, and smooth beats define this rainy-day rap group. Tope, Epp, and G_Force create a soulful delivery that can't easily be defined or mirrored; they implement the usual funky beats and rap rhetoric, but have a more accessible sound than many other alternative rap groups of their ilk. They sample and pay homage to classic rap like A Tribe Called Qwest and Biggie, but slow down the beats, reflecting on their relationships with the world, metaphorically as well as geographically. On their new one, TxE vs. Prtland, they turn their gaze homeward, sampling Portland's crop of indie pop in an expression of ardent appreciation for their hometown and what keeps them moving.
