Hurry Up, Hornet Leg, Blesst Chest

When: Tue., Sept. 10, 9 p.m. 2013


I've said it before, but Hornet Leg is one of the best and prickliest pop bands in Portland, whether they're tripping through the garage, making arty noise, or working with sleek dance grooves. On the band's latest long-player, Wrecking Ball, Chris Sutton (also of Dub Narcotic Sound System) leads us through another dark pop journey filled with loads of hooky twists and turns. One listen, and I'm ready to call it my favorite of 2013 (hear the proof in "Summer's Eve" and "Slave Ship"). Hornet Leg remains a sort of enigma, creeping out for select performances, which always add an extra layer of grit and stench to Sutton's fantastic pop songs. Creepy, sexy, cool. MARK LORE
