PRP Drop-In Session with Redcast – New Nostalgia

Redcast is getting things done! The band is getting play all over Portland and beyond – sharing their happy, feel good music that they jokingly referred to as “New Nostalgia.” They accidentally landed on that term, but it actually does describe their music well. Redcast accesses the happy, sweet style of the 50’s and 60’s, adding catchy hooks, personal lyrics, and modern production. The resulting blend is appealing to a wide audience, and Redcast band members are feeling the appreciation. Seth and Deeds stopped in on Wednesday night to update us on what they have been doing since their last visit to our studio.

“New nostalgia” was not the only innovative term coined during their short visit at PRP – these creative men are full of stories, and clever observations. The members of Redcast are all blood relatives. Their humor reflects years of spending holidays and vacations together, living in the same home, and even working together at their own local coffee shop, Saint Simon Coffee Company. Inside jokes abound with these young men, but Seth shares most of his secrets when he writes songs.  Each Redcast song tells an often humorous story which one or more of the men is able to explain.

A short time ago, the band was featured on PDX Spotlight, a show dedicated to supporting local bands. While at PDX Spotlight, Redcast was interviewed and filmed performing a live in-studio concert. That concert will soon be released online and available to the public. PRP’s PDX Rock Block will share the published article on FaceBook as soon as it is available.

Even more recently…just a few days ago, in fact…Redcast’s song “Corduroy” was played during a Portland Trailblazers game! What an honor to be featured in front of 20,000 Blazer fans. The band was in attendance at the game, having been invited as guests of the Moda Center. When asked if they had stood up and waved to the crowd, Deeds replied that the friends who had accompanied them were “quite obnoxious” about making spectacles of the group. Thumbs up to those friends!

Thumbs up also to Redcast! They’re also playing at the mogo Portland Music Festival on November 20 and 21. Dedicated to finding and presenting the best in local music, this festival highlights several artist genres who represent the music scene in Portland. Redcast is perhaps the “vintage” or “revival” representative. Playing alongside bands ranging from prog rock to country blues, they are excited about the unifying message of this festival. “Whatever else you’re doing this weekend – get out and see some live, local music!” Tickets are still available.
