I've been trying to think of a fluid way to begin this blurb for hours now, and I've had a few false starts ("Gresham Transit Center are as 'far out' as their name suggests"). This band deserves better, so I'll cut to the chase: Gresham Transit Center are a great band that writes great songs. They have a 10-song LP released in February titled Everybody's Fancy available on their Bandcamp, and it's some of the most inspired folk-pop I've heard in what feels like forever. The boy/girl vocal blend is eerily reminiscent of antecedent PDX legends Eskimo and Sons, but Gresham Transit Center certainly have an identity of their own, one that will surely continue to blossom. Album highlights include opener "Come See What I've Got" and closer "Inky Colored Jar." Expect great things. MORGAN TROPER
