Portable Shrines for the Cosmically Inclined

Posted by on Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 11:43 AM

(Electric Tea Garden) It's great to see Portable Shrines—who hosted three editions of the psych-rock-intensive Escalator Fest—active on the live-show front again. The collective's operatives—the recently wedded Aubrey Nehring and Rena Bussinger—formed Ecstatic Cosmic Union last year and ever since have been lofting sweet clouds of gentle, warmly glowing psychedelia on guitar, keyboards, and rhythm box. It's aaawww-some. Seattle keyboard savants Panabrite (Norm Chambers) and Mood Organ (Timm Mason) have received copious praise in this paper's Data Breaker column, so I'll just reiterate what's already been written: They're two of our most rigorous practitioners of ambient, cosmically inclined synth music.
