Bio

Redmond, OR is the last place to find anything of significance, especially when talking in terms of indie rock. Located in central Oregon (a 3 hour drive south of Portland) and nestled between the skiing wonderland of Mt. Bachelor, the hiker’s haven of Smith Rock and littered with more golf courses than there once was farmland, it is a new home to yuppies and nature fiends and somehow three guys who play music that almost no one there would listen to, but that record exec’s in New York City and Los Angeles definitely liked.

Composed of brothers Cy and Seth Erickson these analog purists have just released their third full length Kimono Dragon on Poison Tree Records (debut Barroom Confessions was self released in 2002 and 2005’s self-titled effort was released on Turquoise Mountain/Rainbow Quartz). True anolog purists, the Erickson brothers record their music in their houses and strictly stick to tape, capturing the warmth that has been long lost among records of recent years.

Kimono Dragon is 14 songs of home spun honest rock and roll that has a realness to it that hundreds of bands living in big metropolis’ have been trying to emulate for decades. So it should be no surprise that a duo of small town country brothers who prefer Busch Light over Stella Artois were able to nail it right on the head.

Over the past two years, AM Interstate has appeared at CMJ, SXSW and most recently played some International Pop Overthrow Festival shows in Vancouver, BC and England.
