The Skinny: With the release of Seasons/Spectres, Portland’s Alameda has been touring tirelessly along the west coast with plans to take the show to the east coast this Spring and Summer. Alameda’s music is folksy and soulful; their style of baroque pop garners comparisons to Nick Drake and the slow-core dream pop of early Low.

At the core of Alameda is singer/guitarist Stirling Myles, cellist Jessie Dettwiler and clarinetist, Jenn Woodall but the band doesn’t end there as they are joined by a rotating cast of collaborators from Horse Feathers, Ages and Ages and various musicians from regional symphonies. Enjoy this free download of the song “Silver Hands”.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
