James Kindle was not actually in Pendleton when we made our trip. His band, JD KIndle and the Eastern Oregon Playboys, was scheduled to play at the Great Pacific.
But nature happened. Trucks slid and smashed. So we caught up with him in the studio in Portland. We cover the latest record, working with Sean Ogilve of Musee Mecanique, and the band's life as a commuter organization.
Details on the band's upcoming residency right here.
