Xperience

We moved to 10605 East Burnside in Portland with the help of a couple of friends who drove from the city. Thankfully, we didn’t have a lot to move. The house we moved into was perfect. It had two bedrooms, a kitchen large enough for a table and chairs and a good-sized living room. It […]

Celeste Plowden has such a way about her writing style that you are often left wondering if she herself actually had experienced what she writes about; even if it defies what we assume to be impossible. RRX: Many may know you as an artist and I know you can sing too but today we are […]

Paul and I both had to admit that Wyoming was gorgeous, but we were burning out fast. We were tired of being trapped in a cramped and fully packed car with our traveling companions, tired of juggling entertainment for a 2 ½ year old and just plain tired of being on the road.  We had […]

I miss live music so much that I haven’t been able to get Madonna’s “Music” out of my head.  It’s a strange song for me to even think about as it was never a favorite of mine; however, the line “Music makes the people together, yeah” goes on in my head on loop.  Music – […]

At this point, I think we have accepted the fact that things aren’t the same as they were last year at this time. I also am not even sure what the “new normal” is. I am not going to get into all kinds of studies and politics. I am a writer. I write about the […]

Welcome back, hope you’ve well, hope everyone is safe. The theme this month is still topical BUT ALSO music intensive, with a touch of history. As I write this (June 14, 2020), the George Floyd Murder and aftermath continues, and overall (again as of this writing), as opposed to the past, the cause of peace […]

Positivity within the local music scene is an absolute necessity given recent circumstances, and in spite of current challenges local band Scotchka moves ahead and plans to release a new album in the coming months. A charming blend of emo, math-rock and indie rock, Scotchka is made up of lead singer and guitarist Dom Murdoc, […]

There are two ways to look at music. One way is the way we see it when we go to a show, dance, hang out, and boy, is the band putting on a show! But the other way is to understand that every song starts as a seed of feeling, sometimes a complex feeling, one […]

We have a strange relationship with all things digital. We long for the analog, the feel the touch, while we rail against the touch screen. But fifty years will make everything we rail against ‘vintage’ and ‘cherished.’ And in our music, over the decades, we have begrudgingly accepted electricity to show up in guitars, basses, […]

Billy Cole is a veteran to the music scene even when it’s behind the scenes. Now he has taken his experiences and combined them together for all of us to enjoy. The music shop owner has taken some time out to speak to us about his new release. RRX: Billy Cole, thank you so much […]
