"It is not often you find a new band that you can’t stop listening to; Portland Senator is one of these bands. The songs are all extremely well written. The tunes flow from song to song with hints of Eddie Vedder in the vocals; with less marbles in the mouth. Each song is a roller coaster of volume and passion." - YourBand.info
The first full length studio album from Portland Senator, is the culmination of a two year long project in which the band wrote, rehearsed, toured, and recorded all within their first years at their respective universities.
Released June 13th, 2011, the album was recorded live with each track being a whole take of each song. The goal was to capture the live energy of the group in a studio setting so that each song retains the honesty it has at a live show
Almost a year after its physical release, the band released the album digitally in February 2012. Taking a play from the Radiohead "In Rainbows" style of distribution, the band now wants its listeners to "name their price" for a download of the album.
Includes unlimited streaming of Portland Senator via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
Portland Senator Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
"With a hint of Avett Brothers’ vocals and instrumentation with touches of Pearl Jam and The Decemberists, Portland Senator
has created an honest and unique take on the indie folk-rock genre. The Philly locals have a hypnotizing air about them worthy of repeated listenings."
