IMPORT
Like Portland, Seattle suffers a sunshine deficit. And yet our neighbors to the north send us the perfect shimmering, warm retro-surf-girl pop for summer: La Luz has a new record on Portland’s Water Wing label and a show at the Know on June 28. laluz.bandcamp.com

BIG IDEA
Local start-up Crowd Supply pushes beyond Kickstarter by pairing that site’s formula—creative ideas + online donations—with distribution. When a proposed product wins funding through the site, the company provides packaging and shipping services. “We have warehouses,” says cofounder Josh Lifton. Since March, Crowd Supply has boosted garment and gadget makers, like Portland’s Wild Outdoor Apparel (pictured). crowdsupply.com

RADICAL REBOOT
A new look for Boyd’s Coffee plays up history. “They’ve been around since 1900,” says Marc Cozza of the Portland design group Commonwealth. “The guys who built the St. Johns Bridge drank Boyd’s.” Commonwealth’s packaging nods to vintage orange Boyd’s cans, with archival images and retro branding. The “4231?2” roast, for example, references the original Boyd’s coffeehouse on SW Morrison Street. boydscoffee.com
