My interview with John Gourley of Portugal. The Man was rescheduled twice, somewhat fitting considering how busy the Alaska-formed, Portland, Oregon-based band seems to be.
Fitting neatly but not too neatly between the folk-pop sheets of sound of bands like the Decemberists and the Head and the Heart, Chesapeake, Virginia band the Last Bison roams down its own anthemic path through "Bad Country."

Every week on "loudQUIETloud," Mondays 11 p.m. - 1 a.m. Central, KDHX DJ Chris Ward seamlessly blends his favorite music with bargain-bin gold.
