Bust a move with New Move.

Portland's Jesse Bettis traffics in sounds under the name New Move. The dude may have a beard but there's nothing Portlandia about his tunes. Instead of hipster noodling the band's self-titled debut delivers classic and timeless power-pop.*

Over ten songs he delivers catchy, crunchy melodies and an occasional blast of baritone sax (which when employed actually sounds more like a sawing wave of growling distortion that actually creates lovely but rugged counterpoints to the melodies floating overhead).

Stream New Move below and consider throwing in a few bucks to download it and get a CD or LP.

*Yes, I know Portland isn't populated by only hipster bands. I was making a joke.
