Formed by three Portland natives, a transplant from southern Oregon and a British expat, Fault Lines is one of the most distinctive bands to hit the city's music scene in recent years. Their punchy garage-pop is reminiscent of Portland predecessors Sleater-Kinney and Sweden's Hives, with traces of Jack White and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Their debut album, Tapes & Wires, was recorded by Larry Crane at Jackpot! Recording in October 2012. Crane, who invited the band his studio with him after seeing them play at a local venue, worked closely with the band to capture the energy and fervor of their live shows while showcasing their ability to skillfully craft catchy pop songs with deep hooks you can't shake. The result is a record that demands the listener's attention from the first fuzzed-out guitar riff to the last winsome harmony. 'A combination of straight-ahead rock with unexpected layers of percussion, harmony, and dynamics. The rhythm section generates incessant momentum alternating between non-sense backbeat and addicting neo-funk. On top Sara Hernandez channels equal parts Grace Slick and Debbie Harry while effortlessly sharing the limelightwith soaring guitar lines.' - Garrett Haines, Treelady Studios.
