Quirky pop rock played on homemade instruments.
Vortex Remover is a rock band from Salem, Oregon consisting of Peter DeGroot (formerly Anbot Rodroid) and Rob Groves (formerly Strawberries). They play quirky pop songs on a variety of homemade and/or toy instruments. Their sound has been described as "music for nerds," and they were once compared to a sasquatch in an article by the Salem Weekly. They have released three CDs: Rawkward Phase, Mrt, and Car Trouble.
