Darkswoon is an electronic shoegaze band from Portland, OR with elemental post-punk roots, and musical moments bordering on dream pop to darkwave. Originating as the bedroom project and primary creative outlet of composer Jana Cushman, Darkswoon has since evolved into an energetic trio, with Cushman crooning on vocals and guitar, Rachel Ellis stacking the electronic backbone of danceable beats and haunting synth lines, and all of it punctuated by the intelligent, rhythmic bass lines of Andrew Michael Potter. The band evokes old school goth and post-punk of early 4AD label darlings, but maintains a modern edge and originality.

Their first full length album, ‘Bind’, was released earlier this year on Icy Cold Records, an independent label in cooperation with Manic Depression Records, on all formats including a limited edition vinyl. The album continues to collect badges of approval and gain radio time internationally.

The Moon Caravan is the project of Venezuelan-American multi instrumentalist Andy Moon. Initially formed in Miami in late 2012, then later relocated to Portland Oregon, where Moon started working on his own kind of lo-fi pop with elements of shoegaze, ambient textures and rhythms reminiscent of a previous life in the Caribbean. Initially conceived as a trio, the band has had several member changes over the years, and currently operates as a collective of Moon’s friends that are constantly changing.

In 2019 the band released Might fall apart soon, a collection of songs about love, oppression and isolation. The album is a mix of unexpected layers, a collage of lo-fi pop, shoegaze and synth pop, it’s not decidedly tropical, but you can feel the afro-caribbean rhythms filtering through the cracks. It can be defined as post-tropicalia, merengaze or hypnatropic pop, deconstructing and blending unrelated musical paths into a single journey.
