In October 2014, Jackson Boone and his band of psychedelic misfits released their debut LP, Starlit, at a jam-packed Alberta Street Pub. Immediately after the set, Boone and videographer Ryan Bell drove to Cannon Beach to begin setting up for the recording of the band's second album, Natural Changes.
Produced again by Riley Geare (Unknown Mortal Orchestra), Boone retreated to a family home right on the Oregon coast with palatial views of the Pacific Ocean as his muse—a particularly zen kind of recording vibe for someone who's known for his allegiances to positive energy anyway. The result is a positively gorgeous slice of psych-folk that somehow surpasses the majestic scope of Starlit, one of the best albums to come out of Portland in 2014.
Natural Changes is officially being released on September 9 with an album release show at Mississippi Studios, but Boone and Bell's mini documentary for the making of Natural Changes sees a release this Monday, May 25 at the Doug Fir. Portland's Bike Thief and New Orleans rockers Hildegard open—$5 in advance and $8 at the door.
You can check out a trailer for the documentary below, in which Boone's cosmic affinities take hold and manifest themselves through his very unique prisms of thought and sound.
