“Dresses are an indie-pop duo from Portland.”

Check out the band at their official Website, Facebook, Twitter. The band’s latest release is their wonderful debut “Sun Shy” and you can hear a bunch of it as they stop in Pittsburgh tomorrow night at The Smiling Moose for the early show. I want to thank Jared Ryan Maldonado (Guitar/Vocals) for talking a few to participate in this edition of First/Last.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • “Beautiful Letdown” by Switchfoot.

  • “Hummingbird” by Local Natives.
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • “Helplessness Blues” by Fleet Foxes.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • I honestly cannot think of anything! Maybe Passion Pit’s newest album… wasn’t a huge fan.

  • Switchfoot.
  • Last concert?
  • Third Eye Blind and TEAM.
  • Favorite concert ever?

  • Thanks, Jared. Really diggin’ your album. Hopefully I will see you tomorrow night.
