music_snaexcover_list

Living with Snaex

Giving the finger to a time of moral crisis
Snaex's new record The 10,000 Things is all a big fuck you to what? Us? Lingering dreams of making music for others to consume? Society at large?

music_muddyruckuscover_list

The Big Muddy

Ryan Flaherty brings the Ruckus
Some people just want it more.

music_tallhorsecover_list

Tall Horse, short album

With Glue , they leave you wanting more
If Slainte did nothing more than allow Nick Poulin the time and space to get Tall Horse together, its legacy may be pretty well secure. Who knows what will eventually come of the band, but Glue, as a six-song introduction to the world, is a damn fine work filled with highly listenable, ’90s-style indie rock.

music_rodgerscover_list

Rodgers, over and out

The piano-rock that's in the headlines
It’s been a long time since standing up and pounding on a piano and belting out lyrics has been much of a thing.

pop_Sunset_www_list

Sunny, no bluster

Sunset Hearts explode with wwwindswept
There’s no point in making music if you’re not being honest.

music_featherlungscov_list

Bird on a wire

The Feather Lungs show big heart on Arrival
You certainly can’t say Feather Lungs lack ambition.

music_scottgirouard_list

Light at the end

Four songs from Scott Girouard
Scott Girouard is hard to miss, locally, bu t he’s never before released any of his own material.

music_beamandfinkcov_list

Once, twice...sold!

Beam & Fink recall Smith & Simone
Imagine if bands could only ever play their own songs. What a drag. It would sure as hell make it harder to hook up at a wedding.

metal_hessiancover_list

Forged from iron

Hessian's debut is heavy in a weird way
On Bachelor of Black Arts — to borrow a phrase from French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan—Hessian “traverse the fantasy.”

music_spoonercover_list

Jason's Chemical romance

From underwater demon to lab rat
The mind can wander here. It’s good for lawnmowing or woodstacking or, maybe later in the year, shoveling the driveway. Just like it’s a fit for drinking and carousing with friends and maybe shaking your ass a little bit later in the night.

music_gkcov_list

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.

music_ladyessenceroot_list

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.

rock_awaasdying_list

Long live AWAAS

It's Great Dying
It’ll take a break-up to realize it, but the city is going to miss AWAAS.
By: NICK SCHROEDER  |  August 21, 2014



music_carokhan_list

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.

music_dynamop_list

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.

music_oldcrow1_list

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.

music_ghostcover_list

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.
