The Portland Mercury posts a nice preview of the Watching Western Skies EP release party:
Alt-country band Riviera left Chicago—understandably, as that city has many, many other alt-country bands—and made the move to Portland, where there are no alt-country bands. Oh, I kid. Actually, the term “alt-country” unfairly boils down Riviera—who, yes, have their share of twang and strum and high, lonesome harmonizing, but also have depth in each of their songs, telling fairly involved stories in plain and appealingly uncomplicated ways. Their Watching Western Skies EP is an impressive introduction to these new Portlanders, offering ditties both pretty and nitty-gritty.
