Mind over mind

Greg Klein leaves Dark Hollow for Right of Way
As a string band, Dark Hollow Bottling Company were an awfully good rock band. Much of that spirit continues in Dark Hollow singer Greg Klein’s new project, GK and the Right of Way.

Or: Why if you vote for Susan Collins, you’re a bad person
Long walks and straight talk with the Democractic Senate challenger.

New words, old beats

Essence explores The Root of It
Whatever the rap equivalent of “she could sing the phone book and I’d dig it” is, that’s Essence for me.

The Crunk Witch that they are

Down from the country: Heartbeats in Hyperspace
Three albums in, Crunk Witch are now far more than novelty. The all-digital, husband-wife duo of Brandon Miles and Hannah Collen have created enough material at this point to establish a clear method behind what can sometimes seem like madness.

Fire on fire

Caro Khan introduce themselves as Pyronauts
From the varying deliveries and styles through the three fully instrumental tracks, there’s a lot to consider in Pyronauts , with equal attractions in playing it loud in the car with the windows down and in the headphones.

Hip hop summer

New records from Alias; the Yeti; Dynamo-P & Micodin
For pure output, it’s hard to argue Portland is anything but a hip hop city.

Seven-man army

Old Crow Medicine Show arrive with the Remedy
Lately, it’s been open season on “Wagon Wheel,” which has become the acoustic musician’s “Freebird,” one of the very few songs that people actually know well enough to find it funny to request.

Amos Libby's five weeks in the heart of the conflict

Play oud in the West Bank
"(Israeli) immigration asked me at the airport why I didn’t leave when I could have and I said it was because I felt safe. They told me I was nuts.”

What you say, Ryan?

Ghost returns with Proper Placement
Ryan’s calling card is his sincerity. While the production and presentation are of a genre, you won’t find him talking about puffing the chron or dissing women or dropping a million f-bombs or using a bunch of contemporary rap jargon. He’s got a plan and he executes it, with more variety and modes of attack than he’s had on display to this point.

Betty Cody, 1921-2014

The Maine music community lost a hidden giant last week with the death of Betty Cody, at 92.

Adventures in lo-fi

Pigboat treat us as equals
One obvious reason for heavy music is catharsis, a healthy release for all the built-up bullshit modern life entails. Like kickboxing class for suburban women, but with lots of black clothing and long hair.

music_mamasboomshack_list

Full horns ahead

 Mama's Boomshack explore the Speed of Soul
An arrangement of alto and baritone sax, trombone, and trumpet combining to front a band like Mama’s Boomshack grabs your attention so completely. There just aren’t many bands doing that.

Everything old is new again

Portland dons a cape and soars this summer
Perhaps you missed Old Port Fest. As much as that event might be a shit-show of faux-Bourbon Street nonsense, the way Portland effortlessly throws up bands that any tourist would think are riding hits on the radio is impressive as hell.

Double displacement

When Particles Collide release the explosive Photoelectric
When Particles Collide's first proper full-length, Photoelectric , fulfills all the promise of last year’s excellent EP, Ego .

An artist in Transit

Joe Gallant goes country
Dude’s gone from Jack Johnson to Jimmie Johnson, trading in hushed singer-songwriter fare for big country tunes suitable for the infield at Daytona.

Interesting Delays

Nice Places help you make it out alive
The entire package might remind you most, locally, of the Satellite Lot records, especially in the production sound and the vocal treatment.
