Just Out recommend Ten Million Lights CD Release Party

1 Oct

Big Thanks to Nick Mattos at Just Out for recommending the Ten Million Lights CD release party with This Blinding Light and Go Fever!  He said, “Ten Million Lights fuses the best parts of T-Rex-style psychedelica, beat-heavy 1990’s electro-rock, and a uniquely Portland DIY sensibility. The outcome, with alternating male-female vocals in tight harmony with distorted guitars and programmed beats, is dreamy, energetic, and nothing short of a revelation.”
