We’ve teamed up with Banana Stand Media this spring and summer to premiere a series of videos recorded in and around Portland featuring Oregon-based musicians. Like opbmusic, Banana Stand is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. In that decade, they’ve recorded and released nearly a hundred live concert albums from (mostly) local musicians and expanded rapidly into the realm of video production in recent years. Now, the DIY production company is one of the most prolific documentarians of Portland’s robust music scene.
The latest video in this series features the music of long-running Portland rock band The Minders. In this stripped-down acoustic performance, the group’s lead singer Martyn Leaper plays “It’s Gonna Breakout.” The song appeared on the band’s 2016 release “Into The River” (which The Minders also played during an opbmusic session).
“It’s Gonna Breakout” was recorded on Oct. 22, 2016 in Portland, Oregon. The video was shot and edited by Darren Hartman. Audio for this video was recorded by Isaiah H. Brown.
