Small Million-Bullets In The Bower

On “Bullets In The Bower” Portland-based duo Small Million turn a campfire ballad into a synth-drenched dreamscape. Ryan Linder’s production shows dynamic range, starting with a cold, isolated vocal. He then turns up the heat and brings in the trap beats and synths. The sounds blend perfectly with the vocal performance of Malachi Graham.

Last Friday at Park West was their biggest show as a band since that festival, and their biggest headlining club show. They packed … Continue reading The O’Mys at Park West 9/28/18
