under the waves
Pseudosix is a sweet Portland band made up of members of other sweet Portland bands (like Joggers). Our friend Paige at Flux=Rad has declared herself a fan, calling the songs on the band's upcoming sophomore LP "sparkling and well-crafted pop gems with a darker, more complicated underbelly." Like Paige, we kind of put off listening to the album for no real reason, but it turns out she's absolutely right. Case in point: "Under the Waves," a rolling, extremely catchy (yet slightly seedy and menacing) '70s-inspired pop tune that we've had on blast all night. Also, GvsB contributor David would like to add that this song reminds him of "an outro to a '70s movie about a sort of raggedy LA cop." Nobody ever escapes the ugly undertow:
