The Portlanders of Trio Subtonic made a second appearance in our studios armed with material from their new album "Fiction," their first for the ultra-hip Ropeadope record label. It features a pair of cool contemporary covers of songs by Elliott Smith and Sia, and live in our studios the band played the Black Keys' "Little Black Submarines", but it's their original songs that really shine.

Along with Galen Clark's fluid playing on keys, bassist/songwriter Bill Athens and drummer Russ Kleiner dropped their groove into some complex pockets in a display that's emblematic of the soul, pop and even hip hop flavors of 21st-century jazz.
