Handsome Orders (2011)
Handsome Orders was recorded and produced by the band over the winter months in the band's newly built home studio. The new album is a tour de force of songwriting and production, showcasing an impressive blend of fuzzed out bliss, beautiful boy-girl harmonies, and sublime melody. Handsome Orders should more than satiate the fans of their 2009 critically acclaimed release "Heart to Elk." The new record will be available digitally and on LP and CD with amazing artwork painstakingly handcrafted and assembled by the band.

Heart to Elk (2008)
Point Juncture, WA actually hail from Portland, OR… and that makes sense, really. A true testament to this might be their new record "Heart to Elk" which shares much in common with their fair Rose City. Both Heart to Elk and Portland exude an intelligent beauty that is as much sublime as it is progressive. Also, Point Juncture, WA is a band that embraces a common Northwest D.I.Y. ethos as witnessed by the band's true passion for owning every step of it's musical evolution. From relentless touring and awe-inspiring shows, to home recording and unique hand-assembled records, Point Juncture, WA wants you to feel their love every step of the way. It is such a beautiful and undeniable thing and it is organic, electric and pure. After one listen of Heart to Elk you will have had your first taste and there is no denying you will feel that electricity pumping in your heart.

Mama Auto Boss (2005)
Another gorgeous album from Point Juncture, WA which doesn't come as a surprise but nevertheless, takes the breath away. With a transparent mixture of both acoustic and electronic ocabulary, their textures seem to reflect and cast light in multiple directions when their shimmering melodies come in, with full sparkling clarity. This is an album about color. Washes and floods of color, from wet color to dry color, from bristly to fuzzy. Simply put, it is an ideal disc for the emo rock and dream pop fan who ever thought she could get both in one album, especially with dub and electronica mixed in for even more depth and sonorities. Hands down, a stunning project.

You know those classic bands that really matter, not just because they write great music, but because they love each other and it shows in their playing? Those bands who have not a shred of smarmy pretentiousness and love to play music more than anything? Those bands who are dorky and unfashionable and couldn't care less? Point Juncture, WA is one of those bands. Portland needs more of those bands. JUXTAPONY EP is the best CD I've ever received randomly at a party. Usually, I'll give the ubiquitous unsolicited demo the cursory, albeit snotty and biased, listen. Nine times out of ten, the CDs that people give out are filled with boring, derivative tripe, and wear their painfully obvious influences like a bad t-shirt. And so I go on reluctant to listen to anything anyone hands me. Then a band like Point Juncture, WA comes along, slaps me across the face, and kicks me in the crotch. Powerful male/female counterpoint vocals make me think of bands I love like X or Blonde Redhead. The music is big and expansive, with sparse, yet powerful dub-like beats. One guitar, and lots of vibes and keyboards. Nice loopy basslines, too. Very well constructed. Produced by Skyler Norwood up in Camas, WA, JUXTAPONY EP is a great debut from a really solid band. PJWA is already creating quite a stir 'round here so order this CD and/or go see them ASAP. This girl, and four boys are taking the trash out on Portland, sucka.
