Cut of the Day: "Hold On We're Going Home," Wild Ones (Drake Cover)

wild ones

You can't escape Drake, no matter how hard you try! Around the time of the rap superstar's appearance at the Moda Center in early December, we ended up writing probably a tad too much about the dude. So we'll preface this by promising this is the last you'll see his name mentioned here on LocalCut for the rest of the year. (There are only, what, two weeks left? Think we can manage that.) Anyway, ...   More

Video Roundup: Stephen Malkmus! Wild Ones! Casey Neill! Dresses! Illmaculate!

Plus, Lake Oswego rages against the machine!


Hey everyone! It's Friday. Here are some new videos. What a novel concept, right?! Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, "Lariat" As you may have heard, Stephen Malkmus—ex-Pavement frontman, fantasy sports enthusiast, newly re-minted Portlander and casual Timbers Army troller—and his Jicks have a new album dropping in January, under the wacky-ass name Wigout at Jagbags, and based on the lead ...   More

Album Review: Wild Ones

Keep It Safe (Party Damage)

Album Reviews
[ELECTRO DREAM POP] There’s nothing all that wild about Wild Ones. If you’re looking for truth in advertising, Keep It Safe, the title of the quartet’s debut album, is a better indicator of wh   More

Jon Mooallem, Wild Ones

Even more dead polar bears.

The conservation of American wildlife is not a happy story. Well, not one Jon Mooallem would read his 2-year-old daughter before bedtime. His debut book, Wild Ones: A Sometimes Dismaying, Weirdl   More

Cut of the Day: "Curse Over Me," Wild Ones

wild ones

Not sure when it was written, but the fact that Wild One’s new single is called “Curse Over Me” fits surprisingly well, considering the past year they’ve had. Last year was a little rough for the Portland-based quartet, as they experienced financial woes in light of their upcoming album release, hospital visits and the departure of a drummer Andy Parker. Despite a rocky 2012, the synth-pop ...   More

LocalCut's Live Reel: Wild Ones, "Rivals"


For LocalCut’s second Live Reel shoot, we hauled Portland’s Wild Ones and an elevator’s worth of instruments to the atrium of Noble Rot, a restaurant and wine bar on East Burnside with a mighty fine view of downtown. Playing a semi-electric set—which included a small Casio keyboard and an electric guitar hooked up to a belt amp (literally, an amplifier attached to a belt)—the band delivered ...   More

Scoop: Van Halen Ain’t Gluten-Free

Roth-Era gossip (without Wolfie).

WHY CAN’T THIS BE LOVE: Last week, someone dropped what we thought was a box of Voodoo Doughnuts at the WW office. Naturally, it sat for a few hours before anyone opened it. But in the box was s   More

Photo Review: Youth Lagoon with Wild Ones, Radiation City, Pure Bathing Culture and Pegasus Dream at Doug Fir, 1/21


So this was supposed to be a review of much buzzed-over indie-pop artist Youth Lagoon's first-ever Portland show at the Doug Fir...but then the weather happened. Long story short, the dude was forced to cancel. Never fear, though. In a city like this one, it's pretty easy to round up a few awesome local bands -- just stick your head out the window and yell, pretty much -- and make the show go on. In ...   More

Introducing Wild Ones

Well, how about this for a Tuesday surprise: Danielle Sullivan, Thomas Himes, and Clayton Knapp of beloved (and, sadly, inactive) local indie poppers Eskimo & Sons have a new band. And website. And five song EP, You're a Winner, that you can download for free. And a video that answers the question "What if Bjork's 'Joga' video was made using Windows 95?" The new group—who call itself "Wild ...   More
