Portland's Twelve Gardens is the melancholy pop duo of guitarist/vocalist Chetty B. (of the now-defunct Sister Palace) and drummer Katie Krussel (of Golden Hour). Their music sounds like a solitary rainy-day bike ride under the umbrella of cherry blossoms—earlier in the week the trees were in full bloom, making the street a tunnel of reds and pinks, but now they're wet, wilting, and fluttering downward with the raindrops. Twelve Gardens has sporadically played shows since last summer, culminating in the February self-release of their debut tape, no more cool '93. It's characterized by a slow-fast/quiet-loud approach to songwriting reminiscent of Pixies and the Softies, with just one song extending past the three-minute mark. Despite its brevity, no more cool '93 is notable in its breadth of emotionality, which is perhaps best exemplified on the repetitive track "Bicycle." CAMERON CROWELL
