Gabe Hascall, "Just Dust" (unreleased demo)


Gabe Hascall has been through a lot for a 31-year-old. He went from playing for a decently well known ska-punk band, the Impossibles, in his hometown of Austin, Texas, and collaborating with Impossibles bandmate Rory Phillips to form Slowreader, an Elliot Smith influenced project, to living ...   More

LEAK: Starfucker, “Medicine,” Jupiter (Badman Recording Co.)


Our cross-dressing darlings are at it again. With all the hype circling around the band's self-titled debut, Starfucker's eight track (ten on vinyl) EP/mini-album Jupiter comes highly anticipated.

Listening to “Medicine,” Jupiter's first single, heightens my eagerne...   More

The Dimes, "Lovely Mary Dyer," The King Can Drink The Harbor Dry (Self-released)


Mary Dyer was a protestor—a Puritan-turned-Quaker who did not agree with Boston's law banning Quakers from the colony. Being arrested three times (and narrowly escaping a death sentence) for publicly defying the newly instated law was not enough for Mrs. Dyer, who returned to Massachusetts...   More

Paper Brain, “Dead, Dead, Dying Town,” Ain’t Nobody Cares (Self-released)


The second track off Paper Brain's second album, Ain't Nobody Cares, takes no time to start up. Mike Wroblewski's slightly off-key (in a good way) voice lead the song from the very beginning, as he sings, “It's a dead, dead, dying town/ Ain't nobody's gonna be around/ I know, it's all be...   More

LIVE REVIEW: Portugal. The Man, Saturday, March 14 2009 @ Doug Fir


My dad always used to critique a live performance on how it compared to the recorded music. If the band sounded pretty much the same live or recorded, it was a good show; if not, well…

If this was the only standard my father held a band to during a show, he would ha...   More

Michael the Blind, "Hard Times" (Unreleased)


“Hard Times,” a new recording by Michael the Blind, is definitely an appropriate song right now. I know the economic crisis has been beaten over our heads way too hard lately, but let's face it—times are motherfucking tough.

The Portland singer/songwriter (who really ...   More

Ack! Awesome Oregon Food Bank Benefit Show Tomorrow at Holocene


Here at WW we often get overwhelmed with weekly music events (because there are so many in our fine city!), and sometimes space (or our scatterbrains) restricts all of the goings on to be printed in the publication, but, that does not mean we do not cover them! When there is a fabulous show coming up,...   More

Panther, "Like A Bridge On Fire," The Birds EP (Altin Village)


From the sounds of the first single off Panther's German-released EP, The Birds, it seems as though the local dance duo has strayed from its electro-psych funk base.

“Like A Bridge On Fire” is a hell of a lot barer than the tracks that comprise 14kt Gold, the EP's pred...   More
