1939 Ensemble: Howl & Bite

1939 Ensemble: Howl & Bite

1939 Ensemble have one of the most unique set ups I’ve heard in recent years. The group consists of a drummer, a vibraphone player and droning noise which provides an ominous backdrop for the percussive duo. The two create instrumental songs that range from passive, ambient soundscapes to violent crescendos and use the spaces in between to build and deconstruct transient melodies within each piece. Their first release, Howl & Bite, was released last April is an assault of spacey compositions that are as enticing as they are eerie. See the two perform at PDX Pop Now on Friday night for what’s sure to be a memorable show- Benjamin Toledo
