Black Market Sunday is a new band on the Portland scene however all of the members are seasoned veterans. They have been busy recording and are ready to hit the stage. Their sound is familiar and new at the same time with elements of psychedelia and solid rock with their own unique flavor. Every song on the 5 song CD they gave me is a solid stand alone cut.
