Atmosphere! Atmosphere! It’s everywhere and oh so clear.
Where Division Ends is comprised of Tyson and Jessica Kingrey and is perfect for fans of Radiohead or My Bloody Valentine. I lived with Where Division Ends for some months and never saw them perform. What I did hear came in the form of laptop speakers. I really should have insisted on making them play a show since the truth is I might not even be having a kickstarter for Take Out the Trash if it weren’t for them.
What happened is: I got a band together for one show. 1 show. After the show Tyson said, and I quote: “I’m not quitting.” This was the catalyst that enabled The Pac-Away Dots to form and Take Out The Trash to be recorded in the first place. It was Tyson’s attention to detail that empowered Take Out The Trash to become the record that is.
Tyson and Jessica are not just generous people – after all they let the album be recorded in the basement and all over the house. They truly created a rad space to live and rest in. It is this attention to detail and curation that makes Where Division Ends a compelling project that you should check out.
In their own words:
“Where Division Ends is somewhat of a young ghost in the Portland music scene. You can hear them, but rarely do you see them, and what you hear is only a fraction of what you know of them to be. That is, if you know them at all. Their music echoes the wonder years of 90’s Grunge and Shoegaze bliss while trying to find a slot in the present and a pathway to the future.”
Where Division Ends will be contributing song to Nate Allen’s Kickstarter Mixtape.
