STREAM Mobilities' 'Time Hasn't Swallow Us Yet,' Out Now

If you couldn't already tell by their name, Mobilities is a band about free movement; fluidity in their instrumentation, production and genre influences is part of what makes Mobilities such an enjoyable and dynamic group. Their self-titled EP was one of the first tastes of their particular flavor they shared with the world, but their debut full-length Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet goes even further to showcase their spirited musicianship.

Most of the songs on Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet were written by lead vocalist/guitarist Eric McCauley and bassist/vox Brett Sparrey (though each member had a hand in writing their own parts) and recorded over about a five month span at Toadhouse Studios. Musically, you can hear the influence bands like Queens of the Stone Age, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and local phenoms Portugal. The Man have had on them, blurring lines between what's considered alternative, experimental rock, indie, garage and punk. But, Mobiliities takes their songs in their own direction lyrically and sonically. The album is thematically based on social issues, touching on political and philosophical issues as well. It's a journey from start to finish, and one that is worth taking with the band.

Catch Mobilities, along with Eugene's Childspeak and The Von Howlers, for the Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet album release show 2.24 at Kelly's Olympian. Dive into the album in its entirety below. You won't be disappointed.





A jazzy sendoff for Coco Columbia tonight

Portland is losing another one to the brighter skies of Los Angeles, and that one happens to be chaotic pop songstress Coco Columbia.

Since her debut in 2014, Coco Columbia quickly won over hearts with her perfectly crafted concoction of dreamy indie, jazz and electronic pop. It's why she was voted one of our top artists back in 2015 and has continued to end up on numerous lists as considerably one of the more eclectic artists in town. 

Those that have grown used to catching Coco Columbia's sets locally will be a bit blue at the news that tonight, she and her current band are playing their last Portland show before her big relocation to LA. Playing alongside Coco at Mississippi Studios will be one of the Deli Portland's other "best" acts LiquidLight and Childspeak, coming up from Eugene. There's no doubt that she'll be back for more sets in the future, but be sure to come out to get enough of her poppy jazz fix to tide you over.
