On their new album Portrait of, LA's Similar Fashion has wild, pivoting, and colorful arguments about how to move through Logan Hone's playfully melodic songs. John Dieterich (Deerhoof) produced the album, bringing electricity to Lauren Baba’s rich viola, clarity to Greg Uhlmann’s staccato guitar, and thunder to Jesse Quebbeman-Turley’s gargantuan drums.

The songs featured on Portrait of were developed over the course of two tours in 2016, during which Logan began to experiment with dance as an element of their performances. His heartfelt saxophone solos became increasingly full of gesticulation and footwork, and when the band played “My Heart & Lungs,” he set his horn down and danced across the stage. Portrait of folds different aspects of Similar Fashion's evolution into each other like a shuffled deck of cards — not so much a synthesis as a well-proportioned interspersal of elements from Bill Frisell's Americana, Arthur Russell's plainspoken disco, Tim Berne's contrapuntal puzzles, and Deerhoof's booming punk. In their latest release, Similar Fashion stays restless and exploratory, uncomfortable in its ostensible hometown of "jazz," but unwilling to settle for too long anywhere else.
