Jeff London’s Progress

2008 08 16 07:48

Jeff London is paying Portland a visit for the first time in a couple of years. Says End Hits: “London used to be a fixture in our local music scene. Evidently [he] grew tired of our cheap rent and easily livability, so he high-tailed it to New York a few years back.”

He played a cool, spare set on a hot Thursday night at Towne Lounge delivering the classics and songs off his ’07 release The Bane of Progress. Here’s the title track from the album, which Local Cut says “alternates between sounding a bit like Hush labelmate Kind of Like Spitting, R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe and, well, himself”:

“The Bane Of Progress”

In the following clips he blurs the lines between “33″ and “The Bane of Progress with some harmonica.
