The latest ish of XLR8R is on the stands. This year the “Annual City Issue” picked little ol’ Portland, OR. for a focal point–a departure from the megalopolises of past (Berlin, New York, Paris). HUSH is pleased to have merited a spread with a loose family tree illustration (above) that really only scrapes the surface of the wild and crazy creative cross-polinization that happens here in Stumptown. So pick it up at your local fresh culture dealer or download a digital copy for free via the PDFcast.

Happy Birthday…to us!
We are delighted to share this party favor with you: DECA: A HUSH 10th Anniversary Compilation. It’s a rare snapshot of an invigorating cross section of artists mostly calling Portland home. The majority of its 28 tracks (tracklist below) are previously unreleased, and it features a 36 page pdf booklet.
One note: Should you opt for the convenient, high quality zip download you’ll find you’re given an opportunity to pay an amount of your choosing for it, with the proceeds to go to funding a retreat for the artists who participitated. Songs are the richness of our community and we enjoy sharing them. It is an increasingly rare and meaningful gesture–which does not go unnoticed–when one is willing to pay for them of their own volition.
