I don't think there is a 7-inch in my collection that has gotten more play in the past year than Divers' 2012 release. The free download of the tracks from the Rumbletowne Records website might be the only thing saving it from having the grooves worn out. Getting to see Divers' mind-blowing live show every couple weeks also helps. A full set of heart-on-sleeve rock songs that are packed to the brim with fist-pump and shout-along moments make them one of the must-see live bands in Portland. They package a huge Springsteen-esque vibe into a show that gets delivered to rowdy and joyous audiences in dive bars and sweaty basements. By the time the band closes out the night with 7-inch B-side "Montrose," complete with a bit of a curtain call moment toward the end, it doesn't just feel deserved, it's pretty much demanded.
