Its been a good couple of weeks for Saturna.   We played an awesome show in Seattle with The High Violets, Levator and Romance (thanks to Seattlest for the show preview).  Last week in Portland we played the KEXP PDXplore showcase with The Purrs, Shorthand For Epic and Bombs Into You and this Saturday played Rock Paper Scissors at the Division St. Fair with Southerly, The Lightning Bugs, Theda Bara, and a bunch of other bands.  We’ve been having tons of fun playing with old friends, making new ones and preparing for our MusicfestNW festival appearance in September with The Prids, The Sun The Sea, Green Circles and The Heavenly States.

Saturna is still making waves in the college music world, being played on over 200 radio stations in medium rotation or higher, as well as numerous podcasts and internet radio stations, including Leopard Print Lounge.  Check out the podcast from The Hollydog Blog where they feature Pop Rocks along with songs from BRMC, Muggabears, Handsome Furs and more.  Big thanks to The Retro Music Snob for pointing us to the Broken Dial Mixtape Vol 12 that also includes Pop Rocks next to songs from Iron & Wine, Art In Manila, BOAT and more.

Big thanks to VH1 who were nice enough to announce the release of Some Delicious Enemy as well as put up a Saturna Artist Page which lists tour dates, discography ect.

Saturna was recently featured in the The Oregonian’s Band In A Box as well as the on the Indie Music Filter blog.

And last but not least, one of our favorite blogs, Berkeley Place, says that if you’re into Saturna, JAMC, Mogwai or Yo La Tengo you should check out Dirty On Purpose and we agree.
