The Standard

The Standard hail from Portland, where they began playing shows in 1999. Vocalist/guitarist Tim Putnam, keyboardist Jay Clarke, bassist Rob Oberdorfer, and drummer Rob Duncan had known each other from playing in various bands -- and in various styles -- around town, and as the Standard they incorporated all of that to develop a moody and unpredictable indie rock sound.

A self-titled release appeared through Barbaric in 2001, followed by the Touch & Go release August a year later. The Standard jumped to Yep Roc for the strong 2004 effort Wire Post to Wire, followed by 2005's poppier offering. Albastross. Their latest album, Swimmer, came out through their own imprint, Partisan, in 2008.
