Founded in 1998, pacificUV was formed by Clay Jordan and Howard Hudson. Their debut album, longplay 1, was released in 2002 and shortly after their tour supporting their album; co-founder Howard Hudson left the band. The album received widespread praise from The Big Takeover and Rolling Stone, which called the album “a masterpiece.” After releasing their follow-up EP, Jordan relocated to Portland from Athens, Georgia.

In April 2008, pacificUV, now comprised of Jordan and bandmates Mike Irwin on keyboards, Matt Kline on bass, and Jesse Robert on drums, will release their second LP. Several songs on longplay 2 are textured, languid laments similar to the first record, while others, like the 10-minute long “Orson”, are dense noisescapes, which threaten to collapse in on themselves. Lyrically there’s something added as well, with words invoking a mood akin to the ambient shadow of a Lee Friedlander photograph or the dripping Southern Gothic intuition of a Tennessee Williams script. Recommended!
