Portland's My Favorite Everything--- their sound is an in your face tour de force of searing guitars accompanied by driving, angular bass hooks and arithmetical, puissant drum cadences. At the forefront is vocalist/guitarist Maggie Brown's lissome and spirited stage presence. Her lyricism exhibits a unique vehement flair reminiscent of Karen O, but with a brazenness that is more pensive. Since relocating to Portland, Oregon, the bands founding couple (Brown and bassist Shane Asbery), with drummer Jonathan Kreitler, are putting forth a raw vigor and unrepressed energy that is too often lacking in a sometimes seemingly quiet and rainy city. As bands and artists come and go in a city over-saturated with creative juices, it is easy to over look the talents of the truly noble acts shrouded by self-serving and myopic media. The band has burgeoned into a sonic component of the citys vibrant and artistic community with the versatility of performing acoustic or fully plugged-in shows. Without fail, MFE confronts the audience with a creative resonance that is unabashed and unapologetic rock n roll.
