Portland Selfie Session #4 – Ghost Towns

Portland Selfie ProjectPortland Selfie Session #4 – Ghost Towns

From my smartphone to yours.

Enjoy the unique sounds coming from Portland, OR in this week’s Portland Selfie Session! Brought to you straight from the smartphone of musician/music-enthusiast Sarah DiMuzio.

Amidst the ever-present Portland mist, just a few blocks away from the iconic Powell’s City of Books, Sarah met with three members of the local, eclectic folk-rock six-piece Ghost Towns. The light drizzle accented the music of the trio perfectly, and the whole experience could easily be compared to hearing a sea shanty being played out in its natural habitat. The band’s other recorded music is perfect indie-movie fare. To hear them live for yourself check them out at the White Eagle in Portland this coming Sunday (November 23rd).
Be sure to check out the band’s Restless Invention EP over on BandCamp:
And now for a brief chat with the band’s frontman Lukas Borsten.
