Walk through the lyrical forest with Sasquatch

Not to be confused with the woods dwelling, hairy mammoth of a humanoid or the yearly festival extravaganza, but for the sake of this post, Sasquatch refers to the moniker adapted by your next favorite local hip hop act. Branden A., aka Sasquatch (or SQTCH, depending), hatches an apt lyrically flow atop old school beats and samples. The sound translates into an Atmosphere-esque delivery that sounds refreshingly present. His incredibly real and relatable lyrical content tackles parenting, intoxicant usage, pride and other struggles listeners can connect with. 

Sasquatch fits into the PNW's expanding hip hop community and could easily play alongside the Odd Future gang if he wanted to. His album, I'ts Okay...I've Died..., runs nine tracks of his talent. Check out "The 5th Floor/Elevators" featuring Dior Worthy below.

Instrumental band Second Sleep will soon take over your eardrums

With their debut onto the Portland scene happening just last year, Second Sleep have already affirmed their well deserved place in our fairly niche realm of local music. The two piece is made up of nothing but drums and guitars - a simplistic setup resulting in a zealous execution of prime post-rock. T.J. Burke and Bruce Reed transform distortion and weighty whirls into immutable forces that can't be ignored. So far, they've played a handful of shows and have the one easily accessible track, "Motoboats." The track is an instrumental definition of the duo's technical prowess, also acting as an indicator of what can be expected from their future releases.

Second Sleep will be playing with A Collective Subconscious and Arizona's With Our Arms to the Sun at the High Water Mark on January 13th and seem to have more and more shows stacking up in the new year.

Get post-holiday happy with Sad Horse

It's been a wet holiday so far, so if you weren't able to make it out to that free Sad Horse show with Haunted Head and Warm Trash a couple nights ago, you're actually in luck. New Years night, they'll be playing their latest album, start to finish, at Mississippi Records. Their Greatest Hits LP is comprised of just that, a grandiose collection of singles from the last almost eight years of their existence. The 26 track long LP of pleasant familiarity is also now available on vinyl. If you're just now getting into Sad Horse (or SH, as they now like to be referred to as), then check out their Greatest Hits record release set for a crash course in the delight that is SH.

Drop what you're doing tonight for the Ghost Mom reunion show!

No, that wasn't a mistake or some wack "clickbait" headline. Beloved and quite missed Portlanders Ghost Mom are doing a (hopefully not) one-time-only reunion show TONIGHT at the Know with adorable Burger Records baes The Shivas. It's been years since we've heard from Ghost Mom (okay, well like 2 or 3 years, since Lou Weed came out), and since we're not sure when they'll be gracing us with anything again, come to the Know tonight. 8pm. Seriously. It's Christmas week and this is their gift to us.

Rock out for Bernie Sanders

Those of you that support Bernie Sanders (which should be all of you, honestly), will enjoy the Bands for Bernie show happening on February 3rd at Mississippi Studios. It's a benefit show in support of Sanders' campaign, with half the proceeds from ticket sales being donated to his presedential movement. Playing the Bands for Bernie benefit will be Months, 1939 Ensemble, Dead Men Talking and The Fourth Wall. If politics are your thing and you'd like to express your support while still staying true to your musical core, mark your calendars. Tickets will be between $13-$15, but it's nice to know a great part of the proceeds are going towards a cause that actually matters.
