Portland mainstay Ripley Johnson has his hands in a lot of different pots including Moon Duo and Wooden Shjps, but each project gets to live it’s own life as a separate enterprise.
Rose City Band, Johnson’s new incarnation offers a smooth psychedelic haze. As the nick-namesake of the city of Portland, Rose City Band’s sound could encompass the feeling of walking about Portland. Whether a warm summer evening or gloomy Saturday morning, the album is journey worth taking often.
