Portland Phoenix Music Awards 2011

It's time to vote in the Phoenix Portland Music Awards! Eternal Otter Records is very proud to have worked with a number of artists that have been honored with nominations this year.

We released the album Samples for Handsome Animals (only a few copies left of our final run - order here) by "Best Local Act" nominee Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. This is the last year you will be able to vote for Lady Lamb in the local category because she is blowing up! You can also grab the 7" split single Lady Lamb's Aly Spaltro did with her former bandmate TJ Metcalfe (now of Dead Man's Clothes).

Samuel James was also nominated for "Best Local Act" and "Best Blues Act" and you can pick up the split single he shares with D. Gross, another "Best Blues Act" nominee. You can vote everyday, so I recommend alternating between the two.

Jesse Pilgrim also picked up a nomination for "Best Roots Act", and you should definitely get your hands on his vinyl single "Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure", as well as his self-released killer new debut album Trial & Error. And if you missed his release show on Saturday then you missed one of the absolute best shows of the year.

Eternal Otter Records also wishes all the luck to the Lucid (Building of Song headliners), Meghan Yates (another Tower of Song/Building of Song alum), Dead Man's Clothes (who the Panda Bandits just played a show with at the Oak + the Ax), Jakob Battick + Friends (who invited the Panda Bandits to play Slainte and released an excellent new album), Portland Jazz Orchestra (who played the Casablanca screening we programmed at the State), and Big Blood & Olas, both made up of former members of Cerberus Shoal.
