Small Million
Portland duo Small Million (Ryan Linder & Malachi Graham) met on the dance floor and united in the bedroom (studio), where they spend many hours polishing their moody, lyrical synth pop. Rich, textured tracks with soaring melodies; wistful and cautiously optimistic.

Since their song Six Feet was selected for the PDX Pop Now! compilation in 2014, they have been hard at work crafting songs that blend Malachi's melodic roots in Americana with Ryan's eclectically influenced electronic layering. This show is the release party for their debut EP, Before the Fall, featuring five tracks that highlight their range and draw on the pair’s very different musical backgrounds.

Come celebrate with us! It's also Malachi's 25th birthday!


At the heart of Mothertapes' music lies vivid melodic themes, heavy beats, and lush layers of programmed and live-looped instrumentation wrapped around intense guitar hooks and vocals. A live Mothertapes performance is an impressive show of workmanship in which Pete Bosack and Tommy Franzen build each song from the ground up, creating the sonic footprint of a much larger band. Rather than ceding control to the bloodless clockwork of sequenced loops, the band breathes life into the technology, eliciting an elastic, dynamic quality that has drawn the admiration of critics and earned the band a loyal following. After ten years of collaboration, Bosack and Franzen regard Mothertapes as the culmination of their work together, a breakthrough project resulting in forward-looking music that is both artistically ambitious and highly accessible.
