Here is a super cute new video from my new favorite pop/experimental/electronica band, The Harvey Girls. The song is called Hey, Little Sprout!. It's off of the album Nutate:

Long story short:
In mid-December/early January I had a major electronic music baptism. I discovered IDM, Warp Records, more trip-hop (remember when I heard Massive Attacks Mezzanine for the first time last spring?) and more ambient. Inspired by all things experimental and electronica I started brainstorming about putting some shows together. I started an email correspondence with Hiram Lucke of The Harvey Girls. The Harvey Girls and I have been Myspace friends since they moved to Portland in 2006 but I had not listened to one of their full albums. Hiram sent me a link to their latest album called Nutate and an earlier release The Wild Farewell. These albums were the culmination of all the crazy bands I had just started listening to and some old time favorites as well. I was SO PSYCHED. Not only did I find a new genres that I love, I found a Portland band that I love!
Here is a less cute and more gory video from The Harvey Girls. The song is Don't Go Stop also off of Nutate:

If you know of any other bands that are in the same vein please let me know! Especially if they are from Portland. -- Ste. Goldie
