FRIDAY, JUNE 26Derrick Carter, Mercedes, Rose City Underground [HOUSE RULES] In 1995, Derrick Carter and Luke Solomon released the house-music compilation Seasons on their newfound (and now definitively classic) Classic Music Company label.

FRIDAY, JUNE 19Joey Badass [WHERE B.K. AT] The Brooklyn-born MC raps a style and cadence that brings to mind ’90s era legends like Nas and Notorious B.I.G.—despite the fact that he wasn’t even born when Illmatic was released. The 20-year-old prodigy’s major label debut, B4.DA.$$, is a fine bout of nostalgia for hip-hop’s golden age, with beats from DJ Premier and J Dilla and an interpolation ...   More

FRIDAY, JUNE 12 No Joy, Appendixes, Tender Age [LOVEMORE] It’s hard to break new ground in shoegaze. By definition alone, the genre tag—designated by the British music press in the late ’80s to describe loud, brittle bands like My Bloody Valentine and Ride that remained basically motionless onstage—is narrow in scope. Montreal quartet No Joy thrive not by pushing the boundaries of the ...   More

FRIDAY, APRIL 24Mikal Cronin, Old Light[RAMBLING POP] Mikal Cronin makes road trip music: laid back, with catchy choruses that are easy to sing along with and the kind of sentimental sunniness that makes you want to get the hell out of wherever you’re stuck for the moment. Maybe it gets a little repetitive, but in a way that’s never boring, just reliable. His recently released single, “Made Up ...   More

It remains to be seen if he can match the vocal elasticity of Bad Brains’ original singer, H.R., but based on his last Portland appearance, Bey is almost there in terms of onstage weirdness.
