Panther, "Diamond, Violence (E*Rock Remix)" (Unreleased,found on KRS's page)

Wouldn't it be greater than great if producers of Bosom Buddies decided to recast the old '80s sitcom and turn it into a Portland-based reality show starring E*Rock and Panther's Charlie Salas-Humera? From the follies of the pair's previous, haphazard band to the attic recordings of Panther's deb...   More

Laura Veirs at The Mac Store, May 31, 2008

On Sunday I caught Laura Veirs at the Mac Store. With two assumed bandmates and two plush animals for company, she began her set promptly at 5 pm. Aside from both old and new songs from her catalog, there was some political improv in the form of a song about Obama. As much as I love Barack and ...   More

Photo Review: Glass Candy at the Roseland, May 23, 2008

Due to a Sasquatch-induced coma following that outdoor festival, I spaced the fact that I'd shot Glass Candy at the Roseland. What else could explain my lapse in posting? Not Glass Candy's set itself—that's for certain, as it was the best Glass Candy set I've seen to date. Never in a mill...   More

Gossip, "Standing in the Way of Control (Le Tigre Remix)," Standing In The Way Of Control Single

So far this is the best Gossip remix I have heard. And I guess the fact that it's not even by MEN, the post-Le Tigre project of members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman, but Le Tigre itself, is also worthy of acclaim. Still, something tells me frontwoman Kathleen Hanna wasn't actually involved (so ma...   More

Photo Review: Portland Bands at Sasquatch

Seattle definitely had a bigger handle on the local bands element at this year's Sasquatch than Portland did. Fleet Foxes, J Tillman, Throw Me the Statue, the Blakes and (all too many) more instantly outweighed Portland's showing of the Shaky Hands and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks. There were ...   More

Hang the DJ: DJ KENOY

My first exposure to DJ Kenoy came by way of a stroll down Hawthorne one winter night earlier this year. As I walked past Metro, the store's speakers called to my electro-loving ears. Not knowing who exactly was sounding from those speakers, I stepped in to find out. While the woman working inside ...   More

Ianfidelity, "Dry Clay Ave.," Free Are the Broken English (Self-released)

When I first heard the acoustic guitar chords and subtle beat of Ianfidelity's "Dry Clay Ave.," I immediately thought of Everlast. Remember him? That connection took me straight back to middle school when people still listened to the radio and Everlast's song "What It's Like" dominated radio ...   More

Big Q&A: Portland Musicians Get Political on Election Day

With the Barack the Vote concert last Thursday at Bebati's Pan, and the Decemberists stumping for Obama by way of a performance at the candidate's rally on the waterfront Sunday, I got to thinking of Portland's myriad of other bands and their take on politics.

It's election day: What better time...   More

Decemberists to Rock with Barack on the Waterfront Sunday

Oh those sly Obama campaign managers. First they announce that Barack Obama will making an appearance on the waterfront this Sunday, setting into motion an inevitable RSVP frenzy. Now comes news that the Decem...   More

Hang the DJ: HR Paperstacks

Leigh Feldman, a.k.a. HR Paperstacks, has dazzled us before. No, not from his position behind the DJ decks at Hot Mess (where he surely does impress), but on LocalCut's Compilation of Love post, ...   More
