PDX Pop Now Day 1 - What to Expect

After months of strenuous hard work, the 13th annual PDX Pop Now Festival is here to be enjoyed by Portland's newest wave of all-age music appreciators. Each year, numbers of volunteers spend so much of their personal time trying to make the festival happen by showcasing the city's best up and coming artists and today, the fruits are now ripe for entertainment.

Sabonis, a somewhat shoegazey, somewhat lo-fi alt indie group is opening up the fest, using the chill vibes to ease everyone into a weekend of craziness. Saola, playing after Sabonis, is probably one of the greatest bands out there right now that still happens to be in high school. They're bringing the heaviest element to the day's lineup, with a doom metal output.

Folky stylings are represented by Loch Lomond, Dragging an Ox Through Water and Snowblind Traveler, with a country-ish twang coming from Jenny Don't & the Spurs.

Ali Muhareb's Mujahedeen and Eyelids are the trippiest of the bunch and electronic lovers Gold Casio are helping one of the only hip hop acts, Mic Capes, get bodies moving towards the end of the night.

The first day of PDX Pop Now offers a little bit of something for everyone, as do the other two days of the fest. It officially begins at 6pm tonight, so be sure to come out. It's free!


Castles redefine indie with their latest EP

Once you hear the higher pitched croon of Castles' Cody Myers, a nostalgic comfort for the early 2000's will rush over you. A reminiscent mixture of Mae with a bit of older school Dr. Dog and Tame Impala, Castles understand the ins and outs of alternative rock and have shown their capacity to make it easy to love and enjoy, without sounding passé.

Starting in 2014, the Portland 4-piece have released a self titled EP in May comprised of tracks that transport you to a whole other realm sonically. The combination of Myers' colorful vocals with impeccable playing from Eric Wenzel on lead guitar, Adrian Swindells on bass and Tom Wortman on drums make for an overall chill yet stimulating listening experience.

Castles is working on some new tracks and have got a few shows coming up, including one on the July 29 at the Waypost. Congrats on being the new Deli Portland winners, boys!


Saturday Night Sounds: Seance Crasher - "I Even Love You More"

Tonight, we've got a new one coming to you from Seance Crasher. "I Even Love You More" is a warm, jangly pop rock song that fills you with the feeling of just wanting to drive through the desert on a long road trip with that special someone. 

Featuring Tammy Barnes (aka Bambi B.) from Repatliens on bass and backing vocals, the harmonies between Barnes and Kevin Rafn are infectious and aid in creating the overall good feel about the track. 

On this lovely Saturday night, get in the fun having mood with "I Even Love You More."


A Much Needed Night in R&B

 It's more than obvious that with what is happening in the United States and really the entire world around us, that both as minorities and Americans alike, we need to band together. Race and sexuality shouldn't serve as another barrier that separates us and with an upcoming lineup of racially diverse and fluid artists, biases and hate need not apply in any way, shape to this night.

We've got Blossom, who offers one of the only vocal r&b representations in Portland. You've probably heard her popular "Black Magic Woman," and the EYRST vocalist will most definitely bring some black woman magic to the bill. There will be quite a few opportunities to see Blossom this year, including Pickathon at the end of the summer, which she'll be playing along with Chanti Darling.

Oh, Chanti, Chanti, Chanti! The range on this handsome honey is unlike what most vocalists are capable of pulling off nowadays. Chanti and his Darling team of swirvers, twirlers and musicians have been everywhere lately, and it couldn't be more well deserved. Blending funk, r&b, soul and love, Chanti Darling are running wild with that 'best new band title' sashaying their way into ruling our world. 

Hailing from Seattle, SassyBlack split from her partner Stas Irons in THEESatisfaction and has been making it quite well on her own with her jazzy stylings. This will be her first performance in Portland, so let's welcome her well.

This show is TOMORROW at Holocene. It's 21 and over and will have DJ Lamar LeRoy hyping the vibe in between sets. Spend $12, come stand together with us and just have a damn good time.


NEW TRACK: Genders - "Life is But a Dream"

A recent tug at the heart strings led Maggie Morris to write Genders newest sarcastically lovelorn track "Life is But a Dream," which premiered yesterday over at AllMusic. It shows Genders at their usual best, luring you in with incredibly relatable lyrical themes and charismatic song structure.

"Life is But a Dream" is officially releasing this Friday, with their single release show this Saturday at Bunk Bar with Divers and Times Infinity. The track peaks at their new Phone Home EP, due out soon. Listen to the track below.
