Portland disco kings, Strength have been packing venues and setting dance floors on fire for a few years now with their suave, sexy, butt shaking electronic disco pop. Part electro, part Rolling Stones, part best drunk make-out of your life, these three puddle town gents, Bailey Winters (vocals), Johnny Zeigler (keyboards, programming), and Patrick Morris (guitars, drum machine, bass) make dance music chock full of positive vibes, funny lyrics, and unforgettable hooks. Their second album, “Mind-Reader” drops September 3rd on Community Disco. Chris Young over at Oregon Music News did a great story and interview with them that I highly recommend. Read it here. More info on how to buy the record soon. If you’re in Portland, see them live at Holocene for their CD release party with special guests Fake Drugs and DJs Copy and Patricia Furpurse.

“Metal” is also available on vinyl along with a sister release (on Aerobic International) by Falsetto (aka me, Nicolas from Sugar and Gold and Loose Shus!)
