Tuatara - East of the Sun review
The implied purpose of most supergroups is that the resulting new band consolidates everything you like about each member's respective band into a musical juggernaut that everyone can like. Very rarely does that work as advertised, however, which is probably why Tuatara works where so many like groups have floundered. The members of Tuatara—who include R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, Minus Five frontman and Young Fresh Fellow Scott McCaughey, and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin—play against type, rock guys making spacious instrumental music intended for film soundtracks.

Minus 5 Cover Lynyrd Skynyrd on benefit compilation CD
Compilations CDs will forever be known as the tombstones that speckle the audio graveyard of unsold and ignored music. Most are haphazardly assembled collections that hold no central theme, like a poorly put together mix CD without the personal touch.

Released by local label Arena Rock, Bridging the Distance (in stores April 17, with a digital version including six extra songs available online) is a complete exception to the idea that compilations are a waste of record store shelf space. Benefiting local nonprofit organization p:ear, the album is made up of some of Portland's finest bands, all of which take on the brave task of covering classic songs. The tracks are a vibrant example of the rich variety of music, and generosity, our town has to offer. In their own words, a few of the bands that took part in the compilation explain themselves.
