The Helio Sequence

The Portland-based duo Helio Sequence is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Brandon Summers and keyboardist/drummer Benjamin Weikel. Debuting in 1999 with an ambient, psychedelic sound that placed as much emphasis on the guitar as Summers' muted vocals, the band issued the Accelerated Slow-Motion Cinema EP before dropping the full-length Com Plex in 2000. Helio Sequence's 100 percent home studio approach allowed for a lot of sonic experimentation, and that aesthetic informed the swirls and layers of their evolving sound. When it did touch the ground, it was at points between My Bloody Valentine, Mouse on Mars, and the weirder side of the Elephant 6 collective. Young Effectuals followed in 2001 before the Helio Sequence jumped from the roster of Cavity Search Records to Sub Pop, releasing the more auspicious Love and Distance in June 2004. The album gave an unprecedented amount of prominence to Summers' vocals, but the singer was unable to keep his throat in shape on the subsequent tour. He returned to Portland, his voice severely damaged, and was forced to relearn the craft through a series of vocal exercises and lifestyle changes. Taking cues from another raspy-voiced singer, Bob Dylan, Summers steadily regained the use of his vocals, and the Helio Sequence returned in 2008 with Keep Your Eyes Ahead. While on tour in support of the album, the duo's rented studio/practice space flooded, wiping out some of their gear and leaving them in need of a new space to record and create. The band's new digs at a remote, disused industrial building offered them the seclusion necessary to experiment and stretch out. The results of these insular experiments informed the more patient, languid sound of 2012's Negotiations. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

I wish pandora had a way to filter out all the "willows"...
I bet it really pisses them off when someone calls them The Hello Sequence.

Hey Willow, if you listen closely to the lyrics they're clearly perveying an agnostic message. Ya twat!

Love this band thanks to Pandora!
Loving this band
jsprake: I doubt they stole the show from MTB. Helio is good, but not that good.
Lately is an AMAZING song.....awe s o m e vocals among everything else.
Willow, you're an idiot.
I wish they would take their Christianity messages elsewhere and not on Pandora because only Agnostic people listen to internet radio.
Saw them a few years ago under Minus the Bear, both were great but Helio stole the show. Brandon was very chill when he met peeps after the show. I wish I got to meet Ben, most entertaining drummer ever.
I have always enjoyed this group.
1st timer...Grea t sound.
brandon summers != brandon flowers (of the killers). took me a second to recall this after reading the bio
this group makes me happy im from portland right now :)

They've really evolved over the past 8 years. New stuff sounds good.
I don't hear them as often as I would like to. See? You never know. I can't seem to rid my stations of that horrible Paramore band. I like THS a lot though. I even bought a T Shirt from Sub Pop.
Psndora loves these guys. They play them on all my stations , almost all the time. Not bad though.
They sure do R.I.P!
We love these guys - definite musical gem.
These guys rip.
= a rainy, quiet suburban morning

One of my favorite artists; their music is filled with beautiful snappy realness. -- definitely worth your time and money.
such a good band!!
These guys are awesome!!!
One of my favorite bands....the guitar work is amazing....t h e songs are beautiful.
Sounds like James, thought it was.
kat_kro
These guys rock. This is a great sound.
Ben is by far the more entertaining to watch live, but Brandon can hold his own with dual harmonica/gu i t a r while singing. I am lucky enough to have seen them twice in concert, the first time having no clue who they were, but the program called them trance music, so I went and then got all their music after that. I love all of their songs and cannot pick a favorite!!
Excellent.
doironc
I just saw them live, and all I can say is Amazing!
