The Crossettes


The Crossettes are a new all-girl Portland band that rule all schools. My friend Jenny & I played together when we both lived in Brooklyn in a band called World Atlas, but her main jam was a duo called Ribbons. Relocation sadly ended Ribbons, but when she teamed up with this crew, good things came together really quickly. Fate found us both in the Northwest at the same time, and a week or so ago I was lucky enough to work with the band recording a sweet demo at Alex Yusimov's Northeast Portland 92% analog studio The Pool (see photo to the right, me looking like a haggard drifter pretending to be Brian Wilson, as usual). The band did three songs and man, they sound great. Here's one that I did a slightly more dub-inflected mix of, but search out the real deal and most importantly the band's shows, which is where the shine shines brightest!

ALSO: "Crossettes" is a pyrotechnical term for when specific fireworks cross trails of sparks. There are still good band names out there!!!

Not good band names: "Skeleton Diamonds", "Luther Can-Dross", "Consenting Dinosaurs", "Beavis & Bartholomew", "The Gimlets", "Lucky Lucifer Twins", "Branch".
