On a recent episode of Sounds of PDX I welcomed local indie-alt rock band, Glacier Veins into the studio for an in-depth interview and live performance. This last summer I was introduced to Glacier Veins and was instantly taken back by the band’s memorable songs and dynamic range. On one hand they have the hallmarks of 90’s alt rock and 2000’s post core but then they combine that with powerful indie vocals, giving them a sound all their own. During the interview we got to speak about the band’s influences including Now, Now, Milk Teeth, Sonic Youth, and Tiger’s Jaw. Vocalist and guitarist, Malia Enders spoke about the evolution of the band and her personal philosophy on songwriting. In the second hour we shared the band’s original recordings and were lucky enough to have a stripped down live performance including bassist, Kyle Woodrow on the upright bass. I had a wonderful evening with Malia and Kyle and would like to thank them for such a great show.
Please enjoy my interview with Glacier Veins.
At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
