A new episode of Shaking Through went up today—Shaking Through is a music web series from Philly's Weathervane Music and UPenn's WXPN that showcases new acts (Sharon Van Etten was showcased at the beginning of last year, and the show served as a launchpad for her career). This new installment features Portland act Port St. Willow. The project of local musician Nick Principe, Port St. Willow went into the studio with Peter Silberman, frontman for the Antlers and an old friend of Principe's. They recorded a tune called "Stay Even," and above is the short documentary about the recording of the song and a look into the background of Principe's and Silberman's friendship.
