I have been listening to this band called Nurses and they are blowing my mind! They are based out of Portland, Oregon and these lads are truly an amazing trio of psychedelic loveliness! My friend Taylor told me about them almost a year ago but I had no computer to check them out. Now that I've finally given them a listen, they have constantly been on repeat. I really enjoy their raw mixes of different genres like pop, synth, and psychedelic as I mentioned before. It also has a hint of this foresty folk sound that really makes me want to dance around a campfire! Don't worry, this is a good thing. My dancing, not so much. I can't wait to see them live because you best believe I will.

I also love John's beard (I hope that's his name, I'm pretty sure it is though). It's a really attractive beard. Like i'm seriously in love with it. I want to touch it when I see them at a show. That will be my goal.

My favorite song by Nurses is a tie between Technicolor and Gettin Angry. I honestly can't choose. I tried to, but they have both been played the same amount of time on my itunes.

Their new record "Apple's Acre" comes out August 4th and will be touring sometime soon in the fall fer shure. In the meantime, check out their myspace here

Also, download a few of their songs from their appearance at Daytrotter (circa 2007) that includes a brief bio here

PS. Alone At Last is my favorite song. I changed my mind.

It's funny. When I was a kid my mom always talked really bad about Portland and all I knew about it was stories of car jackings and what not. Now it's become a mecca of indie rock bands and independent publishers.

Yeah, I totally agree. The things I did hear about this city didn't really catch my eye. But now, a lot of people there are coming into their own and creating things that are putting them on the map. I'm really enjoying what Portland folks are bringing to the table.
