Editorial Review

Not to get all geographicist on you, but if you heard the gentle, acoustic folk-pop of A Weather and had to guess where the band hailed from, Portland, Ore., would probably be one of your first guesses. And hey, you'd be right on. The quintet's songs contain seductive, male/female vocals - not just harmonies, but verse trading, an underutilized tactic that does a great job adding some light tension to these quite gorgeous songs. The band opens for similarly mellow and pleasing local folkie Meredith Bragg at Galaxy Hut.
