With Los Angeles being over saturated with eager indie bands, Verdugo is one album that really stands out.

Track Name: Portland
We were traveling north through the redwoods.
Couldn't stop, couldn't see through the trees.
Looking over my shoulder towards movement,
I can't believe what I had seen.
Climbing hills, Running trails,
Climbing hills, we're chasing the lines,
We'll go to Portland, Oregon
You're all I see
Portland, Oregon
Take it from me
Show me something that I can't believe
I ve got a feeling that we will never leave
All that I see fading fast
Out in the darkest night
We'll go to Portland, Oregon
You're all I see
Portland, Oregon
Take it from me
You're all I see
You're all I see
