Listen Today (Monday 1/31) at 2:00 pm (PST) for the re-broadcast of our Interview with Portland, OR based band AgesandAges!
We’ve been fans of this band for a little while now (as well as frontman Tim Perry’s previous band Pseudosix) and are excited to have them stop in on the intraffikradio.com studios during their current West Coast Tour. They’re probably one of the only bands we’ve heard capable of pulling off such wonderful 5 (and at times 7) part harmonies without sounding like a church choir or a glee club throughout their well-crafted songs.
*Please note that this interview originally aired last Wednesday prior to their Spaceland/The Satellite show (w/ fellow Portland bands Typhoon and Brainstorm) so please ignore the constant mentions of that show as it has already occurred.

We discussed (among many other topics): their current tour, their show that was occurring that night with fellow Oregon based tour mates Typhoon and Brainstorm (presented by JaxArt at Spaceland/The Satellite ), their forthcoming debut album Alright, You Restless (available 2/18), recording the album in 8 days with producer Kevin Robinson (who you may know as one half of Viva Voce), the Portland music scene, their thoughts on Portlandia, What they did on their day off from touring, and much more.
They also braved our technical set-up and performed three live tracks on-air (on-web?) to give you a preview of their live shows and their forthcoming album. Those songs were:
“Under a Cloud Shaped Like a Tomb”
And believe us, they are even better in person. So, if you’re near somewhere that they might be playing definitely go catch them, we highly recommend it!
If you’re near Portland, their official CD Release Party occurs on Feb. 11th at Mississippi Studios w/ Billygoat and Arch Cape. If you’re not, then you’ll have a chance to catch them at SXSW, and also when they hit the road again this time for a month long tour in April with the band Lake.
Here is a live video performance for one of our favorite songs (“These Elbows”) off of Alright, You Restless:
