Monotonix at the East End, Tuesday, December 30th

First thing's first: Did Montonix's show on Tuesday night match the glory of the trio's MFNW set back in early September (a raging, almost violent show that wound up with the band members hanging from trees in front of Satyricon, their instruments floating in the crowd's hands)? Not quite. But d...   More

Hang the DJ: DJ Invisiboy

On a staircase at a house show a couple Saturdays ago, my friend and I hustled down the second we heard the repetitive synths of Calvin Harris coming from the front room. It'd been a long time since either of us had heard the Scotman's brand of trippy electro anywhere other than our own iTunes,...   More

Fleetwood Mac, "Everywhere (DJ Invisiboy remix)," Unreleased

The hallmarks of Fleetwood Mac's 1988 hit "Everywhere" remain in tact in this mashup/re-edit—such as Christine McVie's coos of dedication and the shimmering piano keys—but now come paired with a little Neptunes production by way of DJ Invisiboy. The subject of this week's Hang the ...   More

DJ Zimmie, "Push My Love (Salt-N-Pepa versus Justin Timberlake)," Unreleased

It's been a while since we've highlighted a mashup as a Cut of the Day, and I can't think of a better track to return with. Justin Timberlake's "My Love?" Awesome. Salt-N-Pepa's "Push It?" Awesome. Together? Even more awesome. Who do we have to thank for such a master mix? Why DJ Zimmie, of cou...   More

Hang the DJ: DJ Zimmie

When DJ Zimmie graces the decks tonight at Branx, it could be one of the Rose City's last chances to get in on his action. Yes, the Pittsburgh transplant is leaving Bridgetown to relocate back to Pennsylvania's City of Bridges come January. It's a sad case when you consider his skill set that p...   More

Idioflux, "So Long, Sun, My Friend," With Flying Colors EP

Did you know that the year's shortest day is quickly upon us? Yes, the days will continue to wane as we approach winter solstice this Sunday, Dec. 21, the date of 2008's darkest period. In light of the timing there doesn't seem to be any better time for a lush instrumental with the title "So Lo...   More

Microfilm, "Fox & His Friends," The Slingshot Orchestra

Lately I'm finding it fun to have a bit of a Q&A with whatever band happens to be the creator of Thursday's Cut of the Day. This week it's newly minted PDX residents Microfilm and their brooding house track, "Fox & His Friends" from the electronic duo's second LP The Slingshot Orchestra. In a ...   More

Photo Review: Panther at the Doug Fir, Friday Dec. 5

Who's afraid of a big bad wolf? How about a band called Panther? Without the steel bars of a zoo enclosure for protection, the audience at the Doug Fir on Friday night gazed from a distance, seeming to mistake the eccentric Portland duo for its wild animal namesake. Even with the plea from fron...   More

Dragging An Ox Through Water, "Aces," Rebukes! 7"

I've said it before and I'll say it now (and likely again in the future): I love the internet! Maybe a little too much lately. A lot too much lately. I thought the disappearance of the TV from my living room would be a new start and open my schedule up for more noble pursuits such as taking up...   More
