PDX Pop Now's Comp release party coming soon

 Exactly one week from now, Holocene will be host to yet another year of PDX Pop Now's compilation release show. The comp, which has featured upwards of 40 Portland artists (both on and off the festival's bill) for quite a few years now, has presented the city's varied music scene with artists of all different genres. 

This year's release show will highlights three of the comp's artists, with performances by classic pop act the Minders, along with the noisey indie rock of Months and the endlessly entertaining experimental set from Kulululu.

Admission to the all ages May 15th show is $8-$10, which comes with either a physical or digital copy of the compilation. Listen to Months' comp contribution, "Cannibal," below.





Keep NYC insane! Guerilla Toss, PC Worship and Palberta play Palisades on 06.04

We believe the health of a musical scene can be measured by the amount of bands that are completely out of their mind, and also by the amount of music fans interested in attending their shows. In this regard, there's a quality gig at Palisades in about a month (Saturday June 4th) that shines a bright, although rather psychotic, light on NYC, involving two local bands that sound nothing short of irrational (Palberta - pictured - and Guerilla Toss) and one coming across as "seriously disturbed" (PC Worship). Taking inspiration from subversive movements like No Wave and early Post Punk, without sounding simply amateurish (that's the hard part!), these groups represent NYC's current sound of "uncompromise" - and the sparkle that keeps the Rock'n'Roll flame alive in this problematic and increasingly art-hostile city.





Lavachild returns with single 'Kandy' + announces debut EP

'Kandy,' by Brooklyn electronic chanteause Lavachild, is a song (as singer Chantel Marie puts it) about 'greed and lost perspective,' so it's kind of appropriate for us to blog about it on the day Donal Trump has de facto won the Republican Presidential Nomination. (Ok, ok, this is not a political song at all, but... you know, today Trump is all we can think about!). This is Lavachild's eeriest and edgiest tune to date, developing on top of abstract, moody and ever-changing layers of synths and a simple, tenuous electronic drum pattern. Chantel Marie's voice - as sensual as always - carves delicate, haunting melodies. The track makes us look forward to the band's debut EP, scheduled to be released later this year.

From the digital submissions: Airlands prepares sophomore LP

Brooklyn based artist Kevin Calaba performs under the moniker Airlands, a sophisticated art pop project that's about to release its second studio album. Calaba's liquid vocals encapsulate passion and longing. Single 'Love & Exhale' (streaming), off last year's self-titled debut album, is an intense ballad exuding almost mystical peace and tranquility; it will please the fans of Peter Gabriel from the 'So' years. The record is a perfect collection of music for the end of a long day, something many New Yorkers may appreciate. - Amanda McCall

Muscle and Marrow debut new track, announce 2nd album

 Muscle and Marrow barreled onto the scene with 2014's The Human Cry, with rave reviews. The pair, consisting of vocalist and guitarist Kira Clark and drummer and sampler Keith McGraw took their sound to various stages in support of the album last year, including a raving performance at the 2015 PDX Pop Now Festival as well as playing to a packed house with True Widow at White Owl. Whether you deem them as metal, experimental or some sort of dark folk, it's undeniable that their emotive sounds evoke a contradictive chaotic calm.

Lucky for us, Muscle and Marrow premiered a new track yesterday via She Shreds. Coming off their upcoming sophmore effort, Love, "Bereft Body" builds up with a quiet vocality from Clark, leading into a cacophonic spree of instrumental emotion that suddenly stops, leaving desire.

Love comes out May 27th on The Flenser. Dive into "Bereft Body" below.
