Minus 5 Cover Lynyrd Skynyrd on benefit compilation CD
Compilations CDs will forever be known as the tombstones that speckle the audio graveyard of unsold and ignored music. Most are haphazardly assembled collections that hold no central theme, like a poorly put together mix CD without the personal touch.

Released by local label Arena Rock, Bridging the Distance (in stores April 17, with a digital version including six extra songs available online) is a complete exception to the idea that compilations are a waste of record store shelf space. Benefiting local nonprofit organization p:ear, the album is made up of some of Portland's finest bands, all of which take on the brave task of covering classic songs. The tracks are a vibrant example of the rich variety of music, and generosity, our town has to offer. In their own words, a few of the bands that took part in the compilation explain themselves.

Tuatara - East Of The Sun out June 2007
Tuatara is back after a long silence, the band recorded around 28 songs last year, and the first batch of them will be presented on June 2007. "East Of The Sun" is the first part of a double disc with the second one being released in October 2007. While all the pervious Tuatara albums where instumental only, this time the songs feature lots of guest vocals including: Mark Olson and Gary Louris of Jayhawks fame, Dean Wareham from Luna, Victoria Williams, Mark Eitzel of American Music Club, John Wesley Harding, Jessy Greene, Adama, Coleman Barks and Scott McCaughey.

No reason to wait till June to hear the record, it is already streaming from the Fasthorse Jukebox

Tuatara Celebrating Ten Years
Tuatara is celebrating ten years as a band with the release of our fifth studio album titled "East Of The Sun". The album will be released in June of 2007, but you will be able to hear various songs from the 15 song album posted here on our My Space page, and also on the jukebox page of our regular website: Tuatara.com.

We recorded and mixed the album at Studio Litho in Seattle, our home base so to speak. Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey and myself wrote the music, and then we sent the instrumental tracks to the various singers who wrote their own lyrics and then sang them. I was producing the sessions and playing drums, keyboards, and percussion, which kept me quite busy for most of the last half of 2006!
