Holocene Portland says
Souvenir Driver

Celebrate the release of Charts' new album, along with great other great Portland artists!

For a while now, Charts has been one of Portland's more underrated bands, playing tight, garage-pop flecked with surfy guitar, '50s rock elements and pronounced melodic smarts without coming across like mere retro pastiche. Its 2013 EP, Vacation, contained a few great prom ballads, but "Fade Away," the first single off its upcoming debut full-length, is a hip-swiveling beach-party jam, sounding something like Franz Ferdinand transposed to the West Coast. Charts is slated for release in late April.

Souvenir Driver: "Shoegaze with grungy jolts that uppercut your chin."- WILLAMETTE WEEK

"Know that at any given time there are five to 10 bands that I will call my favorite in the world. That said, Fog Father is my favorite band in the world. Bryson Hansen's voice is a uniquely arresting instrument, and his songwriting is rooted in the pop sensibilities of Roy Orbison and Phil Spector, but colored with the outsider ambitions of Gary Wilson and the almost maniacal intentionality of the best Prince recordings."
-- Ben Hubbird for Willamette Week, Artists to Watch in 2016
