Things I Like That You Might Like Too: Youth

Posted In Blog,Entertainment,Music

by Aaron Colter

I’ve covered a good deal of up-and-coming bands in this column, some of my recent favorites being Talkative, Forest Park, and The Woolen Men. This week, I’m happy to throw support behind one of the most promising new bands I’ve heard in the Portland scene this year – Youth.

A new band with only a few tracks available, Youth have cultivated a sound that draws from the best in surf, lo-fi, and chill-wave to play a brand of northwest beach pop that is as familiar as it is surprisingly fresh.

Youth is set to play a spectacular show as part of Musicfest Northwest along with The We Shared Milk, And And And – both of which I’ve highlighted before as well – and headliners The Helio Sequence.

Plus, Youth is hopefully getting ready to tour with Wild Ones and, yet again another band I’ve talked about, Typhoon. With any luck and a bit of hard work, you’ll start to see Youth in more and more places.

The links above will take you to a lot of different Bandcamp pages where you can download or stream excellent music. If you have the means, please contribute funds to any of the bands you enjoy. It’s not easy being an independent musician, and all of these groups could use more exposure and money.

If you like the kinds of music I write about, check out some of my previous posts including: Happy Summertime Playlist, Being Alive & Rocking Out, Shit from Portland, and Awesome Music.

Thanks for reading, and I hope wherever you are that these tunes make life a little more bearable.
