Feeling a bit camera shy


Portland's My Favorite Everything--- their sound is an in your face tour de force of searing guitars accompanied by driving, angular bass hooks and arithmetical, puissant drum cadences. At the forefront is vocalist Maggie Browns lissome and spirited stage presence. Her lyricism exhibits a unique vehement flair reminiscent of Karen O, but with a brazenness that is more pensive. Since relocating to Portland, Oregon, the bands founding couple (Brown and her husband/bassist Shane Asbery), with the additions of guitarist Zach Hinkelman and drummer Jonathan Kreitler, are putting forth a raw vigor and unrepressed energy that is too often lacking in a sometimes seemingly quiet and rainy city.

In addition to her boisterous stage presence, Browns songwriting is indicative of a complex individual with multifarious conscious and subconscious cognitive design. In the groups song Arrogant, Brown confronts superficiality, with an emotive and agonizing hurricane of imagery. And youre so cool with the labels youre wearing/Design a time for me/Convenience is everything/And its so true all the things that youre saying/Degrading me is therapy/Your self esteem means everything. There is unyielding realism in her words representative of the human condition. There are mixed emotions relaying anger, self-deprecation, and optimism rather than verse-chorus-verse of idealistic storytelling.

As bands and artists come and go in a city over-saturated with creative juices, it is easy to over look the talents of the truly noble acts shrouded by self-serving and myopic media. The band has burgeoned into a sonic component of the citys vibrant and artistic community with the versatility of performing acoustic or fully plugged-in shows. Without fail, MFE confronts the audience with a creative resonance that is unabashed and unapologetic rock n roll
