Three of Portland’s best guitar-oriented “scene” bands—Turtlenecked, Cool American, and Strange Ranger—have been assimilated by the East Coast indie rock Borg, having moved to New York and Philadelphia, respectively. With some seasoning, however, up-and-comers Stoner Control could fill that vacuum—their 2018 LP Alone in the City weds careful pop songcraft to the self-effacing shreddiness of ’90s indie rock bands like Dinosaur Jr. and Superchunk. Alone in the City contains a multitude of grin-inducing moments, but the best of the bunch is opening track “Hollywood Hills,” which sounds like Ted Leo on muscle relaxants and features a chorus worthy of the pantheon.
