So one of my closer friends in Portland, Gavin, makes beautiful beautiful downtempo electronica, on the edge of chill-wave. He goes by the artist name Flower Petal Downpour, a quite appropriate name. Its perfect Portland music, when its raining outside and you just want to chill out and relax.. yet it is fairly upbeat and manages to counteract the depressing-ness of the constant gray sky quite nicely.
A couple months ago, he was recommending artists to me and started playing a song and I was impressed and asked him who it was, only to have him say it was one of his own projects he was working on… soo now that project is up on his soundcloud and bandcamp and its lovely, including the album artwork.. thats quite lovely in itself.
heres a couple of his songs, go listen to all of them on his soundcloud and then go download them [for free!] from his bandcamp 🙂
