Doug Fir

If Woody Allen (or, more likely, the Duplass Brothers) ever decide to set a quirky romcom in the Pacific Northwest, have I ever got the soundtrack. In fact, with a little tinkering, Petoskey's album Bombs Away could be the backbone for an indie musical comedy, a mumblecore Everyone Says I Love You set on the banks of the Willamette. Like a folk-tinged music box, Petoskey's music is sweet and glimmering and a little bit hopeful. What keeps them from being another ho-hum entry among Portland's legion of chamber-pop bands is singer Angie Kuzma. She's a great vocalist, but down-to-earth enough to never let her impressive vocal gymnastics get in the way of the stories she's telling. Kuzma fronts seven or eight musicians, and the preponderance of strings and woodwinds is really what makes the music sound so cinema-ready. REBECCA WILSON
