Reporter: New Name, New Sound

reporter band Reporter: New Name, New Sound

With self-described influences as “senior citizen gay cruise ships in outerspace,” Reporter breaks the rules and a few sounds along the way.  The band messes with hypnotic electro jams mixed with noise and punk to create a discord of sound that fails to grate thanks to Alberta Poon’s breathless vocals.  The three-piece band from Portland, formerly known as the art rock band called Wet Confetti, self-released Dust and Stars in 2008 and continues to produce somewhat frantic, yet coherent tracks such as the ear-hooking “Total Fascination.”  Take a listen at the band’s Myspace Page.
