FH002 Mike Coykendall – The Unbearable Being of Likeness

mike-coykendall

RIYL: John Lennon fronting R.E.M. &  really, really high

If you have heard of Portland’s Mike Coykendall, you probably know him from his association with M.Ward, She & Him and Blitzen Trapper, some of the bands he has produced, engineered and/or performed with over recent years. It often gets overlooked that he has a songwriting, performing, record-making history dating back to the mid 80’s. Midwesterners might remember Kansas prairie-psych legends Klyde Konnor; americana fans might remember the seminal San Francisco group The Old Joe Clarks¬†and a lucky few will have copies of the 2005 underground classic Hello, Hello, Hello. The Unbearable Being of Likeness is another dose of the hi-lo-fi avant-pop, DIY-aesthetic Coykendall slays at.

Mike Coykendall is a denizen of Portland, OR
