The Source Suggests

by Ethan Maffey

4 Peaks Music Festival

June 20, 21, 22

Rockin' A Ranch

$135 at bendticket.com

It's in Bend's backyard, it features some of the best string band, bluegrass and—this year—funk around, and it's also an impeccably run event. The 2014 edition of the 4 Peaks Music Festival features jangly tunes from Railroad Earth, bass-slapping dance tunes from Dumpstaphunk and new-grass from Bellingham band—and Bend favorites—Polecat, among others. Camping is a blast and with local brews and tasty food, 4 Peaks is a rustic and very Bend-like experience.

French Exit

TV Girl

Independent

The debut album from the Los Angeles-based synth pop team TV Girl is in a word: mesmerizing. Hypnotic, European-inspired beach tunes dress up the record with rich notes of Sweden's Radio Dept. and Athens, Georgia, trance-pop act Washed Out. Standout tracks are the lazy, electro-layered song "Pantyhose," and the summer-time strolling song "Hate Yourself."

Fund on Kickstarter

New album from Crushed Out

A couple of years ago, Brooklyn's little known indie, husband and wife duo Boom Chick played a great set—in a terrible time slot—at Bend's Summer Festival. Their garage/surf rock and lo-fi scratch of aggressive vocals resonated well with the early afternoon heat. Now, renamed Crushed Out—the result of legal action—the pair is back in search of funds for its third album, already titled, Teeth. Ten bucks nets a copy of the album in all its grimy rock goodness and 25 dollars fetches the more desirable vinyl version.
