Be Portland reviews Loch Lomond at MFNW
"Big name: Loch Lomond. This band is a staple of the Portland music scene – and for good reason. In a magical style vaguely reminiscent of Sufjan Stevens tracks, Loch Lomond reminds you that there are nymphs and spirits wandering the foggy woods surrounding our small city. Frontman Ritchie Young was in classic form, hitting his signature high notes with all the intensity and grace that marks the group as a whole. The vocal harmonies were ethereal and honest as always, often reminding me that I am going to die. Morbid? Maybe. But more importantly, Lomond’s set invokeda series of beautiful images within me that began with my birth and ended with something equally all encompassing."
