The Lower 48
Nearly four years after moving to Portland, ex-locals the Lower 48 return to town older, wiser, and far grittier in sound. Their new self-titled EP, recorded as a trio after splitting with a longtime member, finds core vocalists-songwriters Sarah Parson and Ben Braden now worshiping at the altar of the Kinks rather than the Decemberists. Sha-la-la- and handclap-heavy, the band's foray into British Invasion imitation at times adheres closely to the sounds of yesteryear, but the group are clearly talented classicists. With Umami, Cjell Cruze. 18+. (Photo by Marshall Scheider)
