Listen in to Landlines
Landlines is just another one of the many Portland bands that people are going to have to get to know, even if they’re not immediately on the public radar. Musically, I guess you’d describe their sound as casual guitar rock, working on rising harmonies that work to beat the guitar’s to the song’s climax. It’s all about pop sensibility and songwriting, so it’s hard for me to look away from the band’s brand new album, Problems 24/7, which just went up via Eggy Records. I think you’ll dig it; I do. Sort of sounds like Albert Hammond Jr.
