Weekend Warrior, March 17 - 19

Winter seems to be a final attempt to assert its authoritative force. Despite this recent and lingering development, there is some good news The Love Club has awoken from hibernation, and will emerge this Saturday evening at PhilaMOCA. Mitch Esparza, Kyle Press and co. stretch sonic boundaries, experimenting with raw blues-garage sensibility. A steady stream of bruising rhythms and powerfully persistent guitar riffs curate the potent, engrossing onslaught of heavy, otherwise known as Hound. This local pairing lay the groundwork for a tandem of Canadian outfits. A gravitational punk-feel compounded by a psych-prog capacity that brews and brims letting the instrumental threads to matriculate in weaving fashion, heralded low profile stalwarts Simply Saucer, headline traversing a wide terrain from a simple, sticky pop-inflected songs to adventurous expansive treks. Free-floating in an airy psych-pop abyss, Poppy Seed & the Love Explosion, set the table. (Photo by JUMP Philly) - Michael Colavita

Portland Does SXSW: Alexandra Savior

Not all that glitters in the bright eyes of youth is gold, and Alexandra Savior seemingly proved that to herself. The 21-year-old songstress has a velvety croon that melts into your ears like butter, but the soothing comfort listeners get from her vocals didn't comfort the sadness in her own soul.

Right out of high school, Savior moved from the Portland suburb of Vancouver, Wa to Los Angeles to jump start her music career. Her trip was successful, quickly granting her a record deal with Columbia Records and a creative partnership with Alex Turner, the frontman for the Artic Monkeys, but while positivity was coming from all directions work wise, Savior felt there was a social disconnect between her and her new Los Angeles peers. She even told local paper Willamette Week how she thought many of them were "the devil or something" because of her youthful insecurities.

But she's turned all of those woeful feelings into inspiration for her songs. Think Lana Del Rey meets Kate Bush, Savior's tracks have themes of heartache and regret, living up fully to the designation of melancholy pop. Her debut album, Belladonna of Sadness is due out next month.

New Music Video: "The Dirge" - Eric Slick

You find a seriously depressed Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania) in his new music video for the single, "Dirge," which also stars Natalie Prass. It recently premiered over at Clash, where he had a chance to share a bit of insight into the bleak, black & white world (below).

"The post election trauma has left a lot of people feeling hopelessly glued to their social media. The video for 'The Dirge' is an absurdist look into a dystopian living space where Natalie and I try to make the best of our existence while painting our nails, exercising, and singing karaoke on a yoga ball. The computer is watching us and we are watching the computer, ad infinitum."

Slick's debut solo album is due out on April 21 via Egghunt Records. He'll be performing tomorrow afternoon at Kebabalicious, as part of the Boomfantasy Showcase of Dreams 2017, and you can welcome him home from the road on Wednesday, March 29 at World Cafe Live, opening for singer-songwriter Tift Merritt.

Portland Does SXSW: Danielseventwo

Portland is rich with many things, particularly wealthy people. Though the city is becoming incredibly gentrified and the few diverse cultures we used to have are being steadily pushed out, the music and creative community is trying its hardest to hold on to its roots. Musically speaking, the city isn't in any way wealthy with rappers, but Danielseventwo has firmly kicked his foot through the door.

At just 21 years old, Danielseventwo (aka 72) has been coming up in the rise of Soundcloud rappers, sticking to rhyming about what he knows about while others tend to use their bars for flexing on faux memories. His tracks swing between slower paced jams and quickly delivered flows, offering great variance by keeping listeners intrigued. He's dropped two EPs and a number of popping singles, including one of his newest trap heavy bangers "Priceless." Hopefully we'll be seeing more from him soon.
