Yours - Spin a Top
||Spin a Top
Portland band Yours isn't the Next Big Thing... yet. But listening to "Spin A Top," it isn't hard to imagine the day, very soon, when they are. Opening with a childlike chant that quickly snowballs into an indie rock anthem, the song's ringing guitars and ebullient vocals will have you airborne by the time "Top" reaches its stick-in-your-head chorus. On the flip side, "Ordinary Life" finds the duo of Matthan Minister and Adam Trachsel in a more reflective mood, exploring a stripped-down sound that underscores their stylistic range. More please!
