Banana Stand’s first record of 2015 is from Seattle’s Fox and the Law, and we couldn’t be happier they made the trip. It’s an exciting chance to feature something different. Fox and the Law have a sound you don’t find as often in Portland. Here, it’s all psych-rock, or folk-rock, or Americana, or garage (Fox and the Law is garage-y too, but who isn’t). In context of the Portland scene, it’s fun to listen to something that gets back to just rock, 70’s-style, with all its bravado and scale. I’m glad we could capture that on this record.
Producer, Banana Stand
We had no idea what to expect. And that made for a really cool experience. Sharing drinks with the crowd, high fiving our friends between songs, cracking jokes with everyone. It was a really great party and a ton of fun to play in such an intimate setting.
Guitar & Vocals, Fox and the Law
Fox & the Law was very comfortable and collected, but it didn’t detract one bit from the ripping/dueling guitar solos and massive energy from the rhythm section. It was a perfect blend of party and professionalism.
Recording & Mix Engineer, Banana Stand
Gotta love Fox and the Law and the Banana Stand. Fox and the Law came in and rocked the house. That, uh, that pretty much describes it. All around just some really talented fellas combining powers, and making something top notch. If it’s not for the love of the game, what’s it really for?
Camera Operator, Banana Stand
