If you haven't caught on to Portland band Point Juncture, Wa. yet, then your truly missing out on one of the hidden gems of the year. The band released their fantastic album Heart To Elk at the end of last year, and it made such an impression that I had to include it on my end of the year 'Best Of list' after only limited spins. The wonderfully textured album got a wider re-release on Mt. Fuji records several months back, and it mixes effortlessly powerful indie rock, sugary pop, and perfect harmonies.
We caught up with the band while at a tour stop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with The Thermals, where the band gave us a nice intimate performance along a rocky waterfront overlooking the NYC skyline.
Point Juncture, Wa on myspace.
