<p>Portland's Eric Crosby is blessed with musical genious. His brilliance has been showcased in various groups through the years, including <a href="http://yourselfandtheair.bandcamp.com/">Yourself &amp; The Air</a>, and <a href="http://settlersbandcamp.bandcamp.com/">Settlers</a>, but his solo project <a href="http://handsin.bandcamp.com/">Hands In</a> is truely on point. Through a combination of loops and live perormance, he creates a blend of lo-fi psych that I could listen to on repeat for days.</p> <p>The track 'Take Time Enough' off his January 2014 release Polyester Itch floats through a dreamy cloud of punching synth, sampled drums and spaced out soothing vocals that can lift the heaviest of depression on a gloomy Portland day. Listen to the full album <a href="http://handsin.bandcamp.com/album/polyester-itch">here</a>. - <em>Travis Leipzig</em></p>
   

Charts and Hands In at Rontoms 1.5

Calling on their spaced out, summery, surf-pop good vibes, Charts are the perfect remedy to lift the grayness cast by old man winter here in Portland. These guys killed it so hard in 2013 with their short but tasty summer release, Vacation, I have no doubt that 2014 will be the year of Charts. Also on my “killing-it radar” is Hands In, the electro psych pop solo project of Erick Crosby, front man of rad Chicago transplant band Yourself and The Air. According to his Facebook page he has a new album coming out soon titled Polyester Itch so keep your ears to the ground, but in the meantime he leaves us with this weirdo teaser. Join me this Sunday night, January 5th, at Rontoms to kick 2014 off right. Hands In at 9:30 and Charts at 10:30, the show is free. -Travis Leipzig
