Deathlist Song Release

This past month Deathlist released a new song, “8 Eyes” off their upcoming album A Canyon. Elusive and sly, “8 Eyes” is a hard song to get a hold of. However, that just means it’s all the more rewarding when you do, even if it’s only for a moment. The anxiety-packed lyrics provide the right amount of tension for the more cheerful riffs and beats present in the song. Listening to it is a hypnotic, immersive experience. It brings up a lot of feelings. Getting a glimpse of that one sliver of moonlight on an otherwise dark night. The first breath of cold, fresh air taken after dancing in a packed, sweaty crowd. It’s a great song to start the year off with.
 
Deathlist's album release party will be taking place at The Fixin' To, Sunday February 9th. Abronia will also be playing a set, along with new project John-Paul H.

Girl Fest 2019

Well, we’re officially a few days into the new year and everyone is beginning to gear up for whatever surprises might be in store. Personally, I would love to get my year off on the right foot, which is why I’m so excited about Girl Fest 2019. Taking place next Thursday January 10th, Girl Fest celebrates female artists in the Pacific Northwest. The organizers set up a stunning and fiery lineup this year. Starting 2019 off with an empowered and united attitude, artists such as Dirty Princess, Kayela J, and Cry Babe will be playing sets. Each act brings something unique and powerful to the table.
 
For the full lineup and to buy tickets, check out the Facebook page here. The show is taking place at the Holocene and will be all ages.

Plastic Weather's New Music Video

Plastic Weather just dropped a music video for their song "Doppelgänger." Filmed entirely on an iPhone, the video is fast and chaotic. It shows the members wandering around the Enchanted Forest theme park, wearing a variety of crazy, menacing, ridiculous masks. It’s enchantingly creepy. If Alice in Wonderland was a synth-based musical, it would look a lot like this music video. The goofy, gothic aesthetic fits the mood of the song quite well. As the band dances around the park, their playfulness not only highlights the chemistry the members have with each other, but with their audience as well. Watching them makes you feel like you’re one of the gang, in on whatever prank it is they’re playing. Give it a watch below!

Dolphin Midwives and Mordecai at White Owl Social Club

Dolphin Midwives and Mordecai are teaming up for what’s sure to be an emotional and synth-driven night. The bands will be playing at the White Owl Social Club, Thursday December 27th. Listening to Dolphins Midwives puts you smack dab in the middle of a dark, calm night with the rays from a full moon kissing your brow. The sensitivity and depth present in the delicate strumming of the harp creates an intuitive and self-aware atmosphere. It puts you in touch with both the artist and yourself. Mordecai is known for their unique infusion of early 2000’s emo-ballads and electro-synth sensibilities. The band sounds like a more mature version of the songs you listened to in your bedroom as an angry teenager.

The sets start at 9, and the show is 21+. Tickets are free, so make sure to stop by!

KayelaJ

Kayela J’s latest album Homage (Thank you) came out this fall, and you really need to listen to it. As the album title suggests, it pays tribute to her inspirations, with each song on the album dedicated to a different artist. Known for her own clever lyrical style and fast beats, Kayela brings a new twist to iconic styles such as Salt-N-Pepa and Lil Kim. With this album, Kayela J is well on her way to becoming one of the greats. 

Give Homage (Thank you) a listen below!
