Podcast 57: Marriage Records
- Words: Bryant Rutledge
With XLR8R.com being rather Portland-centric these days, we decided it wouldn't be a proper celebration of good old PDX without a podcast showcasing some of the Northwestern city's music. So we got ahold of Marriage Records' Vice president Jordan Dykstra, who curated this exclusive mix for us. Dykstra, whose resume includes work with Valet, Parenthetical Girls, Atlas Sound, and scores of others, runs the day-to-day activities of Marriage Recs, is a longtime violist and string player, and pretty much lives by the laws of email. He gathered a sampling of some of his label's finest–from Dirty Projectors to the aforementioned Valet, to his own moniker, Dash!–and turned them into this hour-long mix.
