Dark Yoga On Cable Access (sorry, not tonight, but soon)


Unfortunately, I don't know jack-shit about television, so you're on your own in finding this, but Dark Yoga--a massive collab between Adam Forkner (White Rainbow), Honey Owens (Valet, Nudge), Brian Thackeray, Matt McDowell, Aria Benner and Dan Barone--is playing Portland Cable Access tonight. I tried parsing ...   More

The Watery Graves, Wednesday & Saturday, July 25 & 28


[POST-JAZZ] With even the most outgoing band, there's always a chance that things will change once the “record” button is pressed on an interviewer's machine. But at the cluttered warehouse office of Marriage Records, no one in the Watery Graves batted an eye. Drummer Adrian Orange—fighting t...   More

Travel Light: Passing Through With Chromeo


OK, Chromeo's not from Portland. The Montreal/New York duo's hardly "local" (though, there's a few imitators running around town). So, maybe my little electronic music column's breaking the rules this week. Sorry.

The duo of Dave 1 and Pee Thugg just put out their second album (not including a ...   More

Mattress, "Space Heater," Who Do You Lust (Tiny Wolf Records)


Yep, this is Mattress, believe it or not. Rex Marshall pawned his bizarre old blues guy voice for some space effects and a new drum machine. Hopefully, whoever snags it next will be kind to it.

The above quote popped up as a Myspace bulletin today posted by hipster speakeasy cum "hipster speakeasy" Dunes. I don't know what it means.

Fist Fite, Friday, July 13


[HYPERACTIVE SYNTH-PUNK] A couple of weeks ago, Fist Fite frontwoman Jonnie Monroe excused away a drunken, feverish mess of a show by saying, “[It] was a funny, sweaty tribute to not being a shitty band anymore.” The show was, in fact, wonderful: The band delivered a screech-filled set of synth-dri...   More
