A Peapod Recordings Playlist

So I haven’t made a label playlist in a while and I noticed the good folks over at IODA have a fair amount from one of my favourite Portland (East side: Maine, not west side: Oregon) labels – Peapod Recordings!

With the new Brown Bird album coming out, it reminded me that this label needs some more attention, and that is where I come in.  There are quite a few great albums on the label – Brown Bird, Chriss Sutherland, South China and more.  While most bands on the label are considered “indie” and even “folk” they range quite a bit and blend both your mellow vibes with some get up and move type bands.  With label running going hand in hand with being an actual artist on the label (Ron Harrity who also lends his axe to Honey Clouds) the label seems more like a community than an office where you distribute and promote music.  I like that, but I can be a sucker for grassroots good guys that offer me good music to listen to – I’m funny that way.   Why don’t we give you a label specific playlist and for those of you that are new – consider this an introduction to the the label!

Let’s dig into the talent shall we?!

    I just recently bought Brown Bird’s – “The Devil Dancing” CD direct from Peapod. When at their site, I checked out some of the other artists on their roster and was impressed with most everyone. It is becoming harder and harder to keep up with so much good music being released as of late. I thought this internet thing was supposed to make it easier! Instead, it just keeps opening more and more doors for me. Pretty fun times we live in.

  • Don’t forget Dead End Armory! They’re my favorite band out of Portland. The lead singer (Wes Hartley) is also doing some solo stuff with Ron Harrity, amazing country folk stuff.

    Thanks Vandal!
