Loom, Pure Bathing Culture 

When: Sun., March 25, 9 p.m. 2012
Having relocated from Brooklyn to Portland on a whim, Pure Bathing Culture's Sarah Versprille and Dan Hindman played their very first show at the Doug Fir in January. It's a good thing their restorative pop survived the trip without any damage, as the slightest environmental changes would surely disrupt its perfect balance. Their songs, though scant in number, are washed out in just enough reverb and the exact amount of '80s soft-rock motifs allowed before tawdriness sets in. You might wonder how supposed neophytes could work with such finesse. However, a bit more research reveals that Versprille and Hindman are both touring members of Vetiver; they're no strangers to the construction of smooth tunes. And though their debut EP (out later this year on Father/Daughter Records) has yet to surface, it's clear that great things are in store for Pure Bathing Culture. RAQUEL NASSER
