Matt Vondy Soundcloud

Welcome Matt Vondy Matt Vondy’s debut, solo song “All With You” premiered on OPB Music a while back with Jerad Walker noting, “it’s a haunting piano ballad with a heavy dose of “Revolver”-era Beatles guitar, the track is a surprising, but welcome, departure for Drenik who chews up the empty space he doesn’t always find in Battleme.” Listen here!

Battleme / Cult Psychotica  All Music gives Battleme’s “Cult Psychotica” 8 out of 10 stars on it’s most recent review. Recorded and produced at Get Loud by Matt Drenik. “…recorded during one frenzied weeklong session at the band’s Portland studio, the album is a red-eyed collection of fuzzy rock anthems, all centered on Drenik‘s throaty, nasal-pitched sneer. What he lacks in outright vocal resonance, he makes up for with strutting rock attitude and literate, philosophical lyrics that are equal parts Lou Reed and Elliott Smith.” – All Music

Far Lands 2

Far Lands Welcome dream psyche pop duo to the Get Loud family! Their sprawling, minimal pop debut is out November 2017. “a delicate and reflective collection of shoegazey rock songs and ballads in the vein of Grandaddy and Yo La Tengo that grows more likable with each listen. ” – OPB Music

Music, Art, and Design Have you ever wondered how an album gets made? Not the music— but the art. It turns out, the process can be just as thoughtful, creative, and intense as writing a body of songs. Musician and opbmusic contributor Matt Drenik recently sat down with two Portland-based graphic designers for a longform conversation that explores the intersection of music and design.

Felix Rose In the early 90’s, a singer-songwriter from Ohio was weaving lo-fi and gutter punk into a folk mold of lost Americana dreams. Tapes traded back and forth, no masters in site. A few months ago we landed a series of these tapes and low and behold, Felix Rose came to life. We’re proud to be releasing it, finally, into the world, tape hiss and all. Does a better love song than “Box of Wine” exist today? Just remember, “bad things happen to good girls when they drink outta the box.”

Vortex Magazine premiere Natron’s cover of Open Up Your DoorAh, so good! Big thanks to Vortex Magazine for premiering Natron’s version of the Richard and the Young Lions’ song “Open Up Your Door.” Get your shit kickers out and do something with ’em.

HairyPatt_Brown7

Hairy Patt Band In the early to mid 90’s, nothing was as pure and maniacal as the gutteral squalk of Columbus Ohio’s cowpunk duo Hairy Patt Band. They shared shows with The Jesus Lizard, Cows, Laughing Hyenas, Ed Hall, Pork, Cop Shoot Cop and others. And then, they disappeared. So it’s an honor to announce that over the next few months, Get Loud will be gearing up to re-release some of the duo’s 7″ singles (originally pressed by In The Red and Chrome Frog) and a slab of unreleased lo-fi gems. If mind blowing dirt scuz straight from the belly of the Ohio River is your thing, look no further. But just to be clear, it’s not for the faint of heart. Reunion time? Enjoy!

CoverMe_PNG

Get Loud’s Cover Me – Volume 1 Over the last few months a slew of Portland bands have come in and tracked cover a variety of cover songs for GL’s first compilation series. Last week it was Ivan Howard (The Rosebuds) doing his best 80’s Tina Turner rendition. Before that Natron Andrews birthed a revamped version of an old Richard and the Young Lions’ jam. This list goes on and on.  Set for release  July 12, 2016.

Unsung Heroes of Rock

An Interview with the Unsung Heroes of Rock Need a drum kit? Ask the tour manager. Need a new van? Ask the tour manager. Need bail money? You go it. In a wide-ranging conversation, Opbmusic’s / Get Loud’s Matt Drenik chatted with two Pacific Northwest-based tour managers, Chris Coyle (Red Fang) and Rachel Demy (St. Vincent), in an effort to shed some light on one of the most interesting and least understood jobs in rock n roll.
