January 2016
Little Star
"Being Close
"
mp3

There's something in the rain that falls in the Pacific Northwest that seems to breed a strong sense of creativity for our musicicans. The musicians I'm specifically referencing happen to be Little Star, whose early January release is a modern call back to the college radio era of the 90's, wherein Pavement and Dinosaur Jr. ruled the airwaves. Comparisons aside, Little Star hold true to their own validity. The ten trackson Being Close are all short yet poignant, each leaving their impression on you throughout the rest of the album. Bringing the best of Olympia, Wa and melding it with the classical syles of Portland, Being Close (and Little Star in general), are indicative of just one of the many scenes our city has to offer.

Faster, Faster, Bubble Cats!

Faster, Faster, Bubble Cats!

The featured shot may belie what I am about to say, but flying through fast shredding guitar riffs and screeching solos like four horsemen on amphets', Portland's Bubble Cats sure know how to shake it up in their outbursts of soulful garage punk. The distorted vocals, resembling in dramatic intensity Pixies' Black Francis' screams of despair, build upon a racing rhythm section a shambolic, and most electrifying style a la Reatards. It's alive, sounds like teenage fire, and if anything is certainly worth a trip down to the club to bang your head and break a sweat. Check out our listings on the right for more information on their upcoming gigs, as they'll be performing five shows in Portland over summer, kicking off at The Wilshire Tavern next Saturday! - Tracy Mamoun
