Hands In (Erick Crosby) showed up in Portland via Chicago several months ago and has put on stellar solo performances since. Using loops, pedals, guitar, and synths, Crosby makes lo-fi psychedelia with poppy bass lines and gentle, echoed vocals. His songs possess a neon fuzz and hiss, and are so light and catchy they feel classic. Boaring, his 2011 release streaming on Bandcamp, is stocked with slow surf licks and ambient Halcyon Digest-esque guitar, paired with Beatles-happy harmonies, especially on the songs "The Maniacs" and "Moment of Life." Although watching solo performances can get to the best of us, Crosby orchestrates his multitude of instruments seamlessly, with enough to watch to sustain the show. RACHEL MILBAUER
