Portland purveyors of multi-layered psychedelic/experimental musical musings Jaw Gems have made one heck of a cool video for the song "Star Visor". But truth be told, the song stands on it's own; taking twists and turns through a hypnotic forest of textures that include some pretty nifty vocal effects and a whole lotta xylophone, bass, drums and keys.The song is from last year's record "Take A Sip Of My Wish."

Ready for "Star Visor?"
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
