New Music Video: "Baby" - Needle Points

This morning - we wanted to get your week started off right with Needle Points's new video for "Baby," off the band's latest release Feel Young. Model/fan Federica Hermann makes us all want her to be our baby in the vintage-y footage. It has us longing for those carefree, summer nights where you ain't got shit to do but hang, drink beers and wild out to your favorite tunes. We're definitely ready to leave this winter behind already!

Portland Does SXSW: TYuS

Once one of if not the biggest genres of the '90s, R&B was known for being the go-to soundtrack for making love and karaoke jams. R&B has been making a comeback lately, with many artists of a younger generation turning to the styles their parents loved (and possibly used to bring them into the world) to drive their musical creations. Portland's arena for the style is pretty open, but local young'n TYuS wants to make sure we "never forget" him.

The title of his album, Never Forget is fuilled with tracks that incorporate the best of the new wave of trap beats and the sensual, archetypal sounds that serve as nostalgia for most of us. He must be doing something right since he's now signed to Warner Brothers Records, but his more DIY approach to romantic hip hop is something we all can't help but appreciate. TYuS doesn't play around Portland much but whenever he does, panties are sure to drop.

Portland Does SXSW: Necklace

In all the ways modern bands call back to classic styles, there seems to be one  group whose elements aren't as directly in use or recognized. Of course, The Beatles can be considered a band influential to everyone, whether direct elements and nods can be heard in an act's songs or not. But one of Portland's newest outfits, Necklace, take it to another level by creating soundscapes that call back to the group that invented fandemonium.

Not much is really known about Necklace, and they seem to like it that way. Little active online presence makes for a mysterious air about the band, leaving current and potential fans with some tweets, a couple of tracks and a series of gawdy but enjoyable pic art to use as profile pictures. Looking past their aesthetic, Necklace produce modern indie based in '60s pop. Their lyrics are driven by sarcasm that slightly offsets the lighthearted feel to their sounds, but somehow the package works as a whole. We're excited to watch them grow into one of the more bigger acts in town.

JOME reach for the top on rising new track, "Mountains"

 "Mountains", the new single by electro-pop project JOME, is a buoyant reflection on appreciating the good that we oftentimes tend to dismiss. Harbored by its effervescent and gossamer sounds, the duo of Jesse Marc and Christoph Andersson attempt to find joy in the present moment even if the song is essentially about struggling to win someone's affection. But you really couldn't tell from the outset, as "Mountains" offers an emphatic declaration that feels very, very alive.

"Mountains" is the first single off of the pair's forthcoming debut EP, Tunnels.

 

 

 

 

 

Last spring, LA based songwriter Jesse Marc posted the first track from his new project, JOME. Five minutes after it premiered on Consequence of Sound, he received an email from New Orleanian writer/producer Christoph Andersson (G-Eazy, Olivia O’Brien, Monopol) asking to work together. “I thought it was spam,” Marc said. “It happened too quickly.”
 
Marc and Andersson met up in Venice, CA for an afternoon and immediately saw eye to eye musically. After both working in the pop music world for a number of years, the two were yearning to make something different, something with a deeper emotional resonance. Somehow, before they even met, their vision for the project had already aligned.
 
​​​​​​​"Mountains" is the first single off the pair's forthcoming debut EP “Tunnels.” Anchored on whirring synths and an instinctive beat, the woodland pop gem finds the budding duo musing on a fractured romance, beginning "I took you for granted / I was so lost in the game." And as his forlorn melody is carried away by wind-chime soaked sonics, he offers up a repeated sanguine hook in an attempt to win back his lover: "turn the city into gold / above it we will grow, until we're taller than mountains."
 
"It’s a song about finally achieving your goals and the feeling that comes along with those moments," JOME says about the song. "It's also a reminder to not take things for granted and to appreciate how far you've come, because it's so easy to forget where you started."​​​​​​​

PREMIERE: Sea Fuzz - "Garuda Dreams"

*photo by Eric Evans

All the little bits of sunshine we've the last couple days have been absolutely amazing, but the newest video and album from our favorite sunny shoegaze/ocean grunge outfit Sea Fuzz makes this Vitamin D daze we're all in even better.

The perfect follow up to 2015's self-titled EP, Sky Gazing is just the record we need going into the warmer months, boasting sounds reminiscent of rocking out to crashing waves while relaxing on the shoreline. Take the first single and video to come from the album, "Garuda Dreams," a gazed out track heavily led by forceful drumming and chaotic cymbal hits as an example. The track's light drenched sound is due in part its mixing, with the Om's drummer Emil Amos contributing to it.

"For this song, I was privileged to seek out the help of one of my favorite musicians of all time, Emil Amos, to help with the mixing and mastering," says Ben Heckler, the soul of Sea Fuzz. He goes on to say: "I gave the track to Amos and he completely transformed it, adding the perfect amounts of lo-fi grittiness to the vocals, guitar and drums. He really understood the aesthetic from the get-go and he knew precisely what the song needed to remain heavy and powerful, yet dreamlike."

Watch the trippy video for "Garuda Dreams" below. Sea Fuzz will be playing some shows locally and in Europe in support of Sky Gazing, out on Spirit Goth. Stream the album on Sea Fuzz's Soundcloud and Bandcamp pages.
