Locals the Forth have a vibrantly jerky feel to their music that keeps you wide awake like amphetamines, while other indie bands are like guzzling a bottle of NyQuil. They're reminiscent of the harsh changes of awesome bands like Shipping News, but with more total yelling, guitar meltdown freakouts. And who doesn't love a total yelling guitar meltdown freakout?

(Dunes, 1905 NE MLK) Yeti zine mastermind and former Mercury contributor Mike McGonigal (AKA DJ Yeti) has been developing quite a PDX presence of late with his masterful mixes--a spiritual merger of soul, folk, gospel and psyche.
