R.I.P. Chris Cornell
Chris Cornell was a major influence and inspiration to everyone in Purusa. At a recent acoustic show, Zach and I paid tribute to him with one of our favorite songs of his. It's been an emotional couple of weeks, but at the end of the day, we are left to celebrate Chris' impact on us and the music world. Thank you for the motivation, the challenge to be better and dig deeper, and all the beautiful music.

The Big Takeover "Repair" Review:
"Due to a bitter breakup in 2004, this Portland, OR foursome never issued this completed 2003 second LP, despite praise for 2001's 101 EP and 2002's debut Spectacle. A 2014 one-off gig led to the band's reunion and now, Repair's belated release. Their robust, resounding music hearkens to the early 90's; imagine Gin Blossoms/Toad the Wet Sprocket alterna-pop crossed with heftier Pearl Jam/Screaming Trees grunge. But their cinematic rock also summons Radiohead and Catherine Wheel on "You're Strange" and "Man of The Year," while the direct drive of "Surrender" and "Bottom Out" suggests Swervedriver. Each is enhanced by the expansive guitars of Zach Hinkelman and Kris Kirkman, and the brawny bottom-end of Michael Izaak and Andrew Marshall. Kirkman's ardent, authoritative croom (and Posies/Disciples man Ken Stringfellow's piano, on two tracks) provides further purpose to cheer Purusa's "repair." (purusaband.com)"
