This Restless Enterprise
(The Very Foundation)
by Marcel Feldmar
"This is sexy (very sexy) Portland, OR indie-pop with dark twists and an unapologetic hip strut swagger; this is the Afghan Whigs and Urge Overkill filtered through Tindersticks and Nick Cave; this is highway driving garage rockabilly twee wrapped in red velvet; Leonard Cohen meets Paul Westerberg. Contradictions fly, but the sound is steadfast and true. Combining the talents of members who also play with Decemberists, Blue Skies For Black Hearts, The Upsidedown, and others, The Very Foundation hit on a new sound with an old school style, and fingers snap, and hearts are broken, like a perfect late night fling you wish would last longer, but it's gone before you wake, leaving only a lusty note on stained bed sheets.
