Acid Tongue
ACID TONGUE is an American-bred garage band heavily influenced by AM-radio soul, folk and psychedelic rock. The band is composed of GUY KELTNER & IAN CUNNINGHAM – perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques.
After years of extensive traveling throughout the United States, as well as some experimental therapy in a Mexican yurt, the boys have united to produce their take on the music of their parents’ generation. Incorporating imagery of the afterlife, dream-states and drifter-culture, ACID TONGUE seeks to enlighten listeners to their swingin’, contemplative lifestyle.
Recorded in Seattle & Portland during the tumultuous 2016 election, Acid Tongue’s debut album, aptly named BABIES, is a soulful, stoney, heartfelt approach to modern psychedelia. Engineered and produced by Battleme’s MATT DRENIK (Charlie Hilton, Danny Dodge), the album provides a glimpse of blue-collar American soul warped by a crumbling American democracy and a rose-colored look back at 90s pop culture.
Deeply influenced by Southern R&B, Motown, folk and doo-wop, the current incarnation of ACID TONGUE is an ode to a life spent on the road and a head stuck in the clouds. Equal parts LOU REED, THE GROWLERS, BRIAN WILSON & MAC DEMARCO, the sound is a dark reflection on childhood romance, confusion, Satanism and suicidal thoughts familiar to anyone suffering from the American condition.

Having been a fixture in the Portland music scene for the better part of a decade as front man for both No Tomorrow Boys and The Criminal Guitars, Danny Dodge’s first solo effort, “Baby, Let Me Be Your Mess” is a notable departure from the garage/punk of his former bands. Showcasing jangled power-pop riffs and clever lyrical hooks, Dodge’s new found project will relate more to the likes of The Byrds and Tom Petty than the punk of old. Songs like “You Need a Man, Not a Hurrican’” and “Worry ‘Bout Ya” cut to the heart of fond memories, romanticizing the listener with a 70’s era blast made by a front seat rock radio. The lyrical wordplay in songs like “Yakima Canutt” recall Dylan-esque motifs, smacked with a sense of dark humor Dodge acquired from long nights obsessing inside the American songbook. His obsession with things passed not only shaped him as a songwriter, but as a believer in the immortality of the hook. Enlisting the help of Dodge’s right hand man, Randal Blaschke on guitar, Roselit Bone’s Matt Mayhem and Victor Franco on bass and drums, respectively, Criminal Guitars’ Jacob Decker on organ and Jenny Don’t on backup vocals, Dodge built a powerful backing band to give life to the songs. The result is a 10 song collision of rock and country, diving into the well of Roger Miller and Stones-era Beggar’s Banquet with relative ease. Cut mostly live in a two day window at Portland’s Get Loud with Matt Drenik at the helm, there’s no denying the urgency and spirit of this Portland rock ’n’ roll band.
