KZME Presents Stumptown Music Fest

Just when I was starting to think Portland music was winding down after an eventful summer, our friends at KZME put together an amazing Portland-infused lineup for the inaugural Stumptown Music Fest. This Saturday, Alhambra Theatre (formerly Mt. Tabor) will showcase 8 bands that have all had incredible past years and have made a sincere impact on the Portland scene. The mainly folky lineup starts 5PM and is slated to go on until 12:30, giving you a full night of amazing sets. Beginning acts will include the avant garde sounds of Billy Goat and Like a Villain. Sets by Portland’s vintage-pop heroes, the Lower 48 will be featured as well as PDX pop queen Sara Jackson Holman. The neo-folk sounds this city is known for will be diligently represented by the likes of Alameda and Bike Thief and the night will end back with the soulful rhythms laid down by Minden and the dance rock duo, Dresses. All of these bands had amazing accomplishments in 2013 and will mostly likely follow the trend in this next year. So come on out to support a night of Portland rock. - Colin Hudson

Album Review: Echosmith, 'Talking Dreams'

My family and I have a running joke about starting a traveling band. The only reason we never did it was to avoid the inevitable tragic end; One of us rises to fame while the others stand in the background, embittered and ignored, shaking tambourines and oohing - that and no one can play drums. Disco-tinged Indie pop quartet, Echosmith, have managed to break the mold. As their spotlight shines brighter, their siblingship remains in tact. Signing to Warner Brothers in 2012, they have officially released their debut album, ‘Talking Dreams.’ The album opens with two bombastic, high energy tunes, “Come Together” and “Let’s Love” that blast you like a fireworks show. These kids are having a really good time, and they won't allow you to be a wallflower in the process. But they aren’t all positive lyrics and dance beats. They follow up with album stand-out, “Cool Kids,” opening with a reverb-drenched space-bound synth intro that leads you down a path towards one of the most clever, unforgettable hooks you’ll hear this year. Title track, “Talking Dreams,” picks up where the few fillers on the album leave off. It’s a song fit for a Nashville star whose shoes they are bursting out of, reminding you why they are poised for a big breakout. 'Talking Dreams' has the feel of a classic pop record with true intentionality. It hits its highs and lows right when you want them, grabs you by the throat with its hooks, and has real heart. The layered arrangements, intricate guitar solos, and arena ready anthems sprinkled throughout the record belie the quartet’s youth. It’s a truly impressive effort that seasoned veteran’s would be hard-pressed to surpass. In no effort to choose obvious favorites, it’s impossible to ignore lead singer, and sole sister of the bunch, Sydney’s crystal clear belt that could give Hayley Williams a run for her money. That said, it’s obvious the group is greater than the sum of its parts. (It doesn’t hurt that they could each be the star of their own CW series). Check out Echosmith’s first single, “Cool Kids,” streaming below and catch them at The Roxy November 19 during their nationwide tour that kicks off this month. - Jacqueline Caruso
