Sand Dollar (Trio Subtonic)
From Portland comes TRIO SUBTONIC - heavy, groove driven jazz funk described by the Portland Mercury as 'spiraling, gorgeously chaotic instrumentation'. A little feel of some of the Keyboard greats that have graced the Ropeadope roster, with a deep Morphine slash Velvet Underground tone - like a freight train rolling slowly through the city at night. Galen Clark leads the trio on keys, with Bill Athens on bass and Russ Kleiner on drums. This is the deepest and most expansive of power trios. The new record - FICTION - hits on June 17, your chance to support the preorder starts tomorrow. Stop by here and get with the Subtonic groove.
