The Oregon Donor is Coming
Oft-compared to the likes of Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Faraquet, The Oregon Donor have crafted A Pageant's End, officially due out October 6, 2009. Having taken the last year to win live audiences over, most notably opening a sold out show with UK band The Wombats at Chop Suey in Seattle, the young 4-piece is eager and ready to capture the ears of the Northwest music scene and beyond. Songs like "Morse Code" showcase the band's perfected ability for writing catchy pop tunes with just enough Built to Spill-ish jam session qualities to make them interesting. In addition, A Pageant's End displays the band's growth – darker, grittier, and more epic than any previous work.
The Oregon Donor is Christopher Edwards (lead guitar, vocals), Lance Umble (guitar), Jesse Cohen (bass), and Kyle Holland (drums). In response to a recent live set, Three Imaginary Girls exclaimed "They're young, ferociously passionate, with a progressive sound both energetic and expansive... one of the very best live bands that I've encountered in the past few months." - more
