UPDATE!

Hey y’all.

The creators of Gaycondo aren’t dead… we are all just very involved in other projects right now.

Jon is putting together a VINYL compilation of Portland based duos in a collection called “We Made These Songs”. It will be out later this year and is going to be totally awesome.

Paul is riding his bike like a mad man!

Em is currently writing for a new music blog called Outsider Music Press. It features reviews, photos, videos, etc! Kind of on the theme of her “tragically unheard of column”. Exposing insider knowledge on outsider made music. Check it Out!

Nickey: I’m vlogging!

That kind of sounds like a new disease, doesn’t it? Ohhh, I was up vlogging all night, and I feel awful!

Anyway, it’s not. It’s a video blog! I’ve been in Seattle since last August working at the awesome nonprofit video production program for teen girls, Reel Grrls. My coworker Maile and I have been talking about doing a vlog of our rambling pop culture convos for a long time… And so we finally did! In this video we discuss Bristol Palin and her new anti-teen pregnancy PSA.

If you want to see more of Reel Grrls, be sure to check out our new and improved Grrl Blog!

SWALLOWS “BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY” OUT NOW

Dear readers,
Sorry for the hiatus on the blogosphere…. Jon and I have been very busy with band stuff and we are proud to announce the release of our latest album!


SWALLOWS

“BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY” OUT NOW


BUY NOW ON CDBABY

“Between the Sea and Sky is a surprisingly rich-sounding album, with the band’s elastic Electrelane-like grooves shifting seamlessly into knottier riffing and prog-rock complexity.” – Portland Mercury

“Portland’s Swallows—purveyors of jangly, spiraling guitar progressions that remind of Television and Rainer Maria, albeit laced with a distinct riot grrrl edge. The duo’s latest effort, Between the Sea and Sky, throws back to the cassette tape era with a playful lo-fi aesthetic that never feels cutesy or forced.” – Willamette Week

“On the album’s anthem, “When They Come to Us,” vocalist Em Brownlowe holds an even tone and sings carefully over a bed of toms, “When they come for us they’ll come to our door / And they’ll peek inside / And all they’ll find is love.” Brownlowe, 25, and drummer Jon Miller, 27, who both identify as “queer,” explain the song is a reaction to legislation against same-sex marriages. But had they said it was about Tibet or the Spanish Inquisition, that would have been believable, too. The song’s simple lyrics and melody make it universal and subtle — qualities of most good protest songs — and the fact that it draws its strength from the humble confidence afforded only to those who are right in any struggle makes it beautiful.” – Jason Simms, The Oregonian

“Their new work demonstrate a mastery of controlled intensity, with compositions meditating on a modality and building in force and intricacy into bold poetic landscapes.” – Crappy Indie Music Blog
