The Doug Fir will be host to a lineup comprised of some the Deli's Portland's most prized artists tomorrow. The Cabin Project are having their record release show for the new Unfolded, joined by Deli Portland Artist of the Year for 2015 Coco Columbia and the instrumentally dynamic and colorful Human Ottoman.
The orchestral pop of The Cabin Project boasts grand choruses and harmonies paired with scopic string sections, manifesting a desirably mellow affect that landed them the runner up slot in the Deli's Year End polls. Katie Sawicki, the Brooklynite that founded The Cabin Project, developed her vision over the last near decade by injecting an intimacy of poetically heartfelt lyrics paired with a musical output that's just as affectionate. Now joined by Zanny Geffel and Rebekah Hanson, The Cabin Project's full sound translates into an ornate projection on all members' innermost emotions.
Unfolded is the third release from The Cabin Project and promises to be the most sentimental yet. "[Unfolded is] an album about despair, loss, hope, freedom, heartache, justice and love. We hope that our listeners will connect with the words and feelings of this record and believe that it is catharsis for all who have felt these universal feelings within their own journeys through life," the band states on album's intent.
Coco Columbia's angelic jazz pop fills an empty pocket in Portland's rock dominated music scene, while Human Ottoman's revived take on the typical instrumental makeup of a band (using only a cello, vibraphone and drums) is sonically raucous.
An album stream for The Cabin Project's Unfolded will be available on the Deli Portland site before the release show tomorrow, so be sure to familiarize yourself before you see it live at this Deli endorsed event.
