ENTRANCE and Bill Callahan Play Starline Social Club in Oakland - 2/4

Don't miss ENTRANCE at Starline Social Club in Oakland on Saturday, February 4th w/ Bill Callahan in support of his upcoming album, Book of Changes.

ENTRANCE's Book of Changes (out Feb. 24th) is a poetic song cycle about the seasons of the heart, tracing an emotional journey through longing and emptiness to peace and redemption. The record achieves a seamless melding of the personal, political and philosophical, a vibrant document of an artist hitting a creative stride and discovering an expansive new sound. The first single "Always the Right Time" takes the same energy of ENTRANCE's protest track, Not Gonna Say Your Name and points that energy towards the positive, grabbing life by the horns and celebrating what's most important: "It's always the right time for love".

Slaptop Releases New Music Video - Another Life (feat. Geneva White)

We're excited for you to check out Slaptop's new music video for his singer, Another Life (feat. Geneva White).

 

San-Francisco producer Slaptop revealed the plans for a debut artist album, With You, due out March 3rd, 2017 via his own newly founded label Sunsquad Records. So far, fans have been treated to two cuts from the project- "Passenger" a magnetic indie-dance cut co-signed by The Magician for his label Potion Records, and "I Try," a dance-pop cross over single featuring a mesmerizing vocal line from Olivia Florentino.

Taking us deeper into the upcoming LP, Slaptop has now released the third album single, "Another Life." Featuring vocalist Geneva White, "Another Life" comes to fruition thanks to hypnotic four-on-the-floor rhythms, deep synth, a sub quaking bassline, and finally a set of unforgettable lyrics that are sure to be lodged in your brain long after the tracks final beats. A strong indicator of what's to come on the remainder of the album, "Another Life," proves to be an enigmatic dance track ideal for peak hour club play.

Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE's Residency is in Full Effect

In conjunction with this weekend's Sabertooth Music Fest, Showdeer and Al's Den are hosting Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE as their residency for the next six days. Though it technically started last night, many special guests will be joining in on the dark psych folk fun, led by the beautiful swoon of Laura Hopkins.

See the flyer above for a breakdown of each night's LPDP pairings. Each night is free, 21+ and starts at 7pm so if you're gearing up to head out for the night, stop by Al's Den and see them tonight with Haley Heynderickx.





Matthew Fountain & the Whereabouts' "Written on Your Wall" Makes You Reflect on All Your Conversations

From shredding in Mississippi metal bands as a teen to a West Coast move resulting in a new sound, Matthew Fountain has taken the familial jazzy influence of his upbringing and turned it into the artsy folk pop us Portlanders get to experience today.

With anywhere from three to eight of his musician friends joining him live as part of the Whereabouts, Matthew Fountain's tunes lyrically reflect the familiar struggle we all have with reflecting on self-identity, social interactions, the future, love and other strong forces we experience. Some of these themes can be heard on his newest track, "Written on Your Wall," that came out just over a week ago.

Through moody chamber folk and a somewhat theatrical production, "Written on Your Wall" touches on the all too common human tendency of hearing what we want to out of conversations and other people's words. Its syncopated arrangements and interesting key changes keep the listener attentive while engaging in its relatable storyline. Give it a listen below





GOOD ANYA "GOOD EFFORT" EP

Good Anya was formed in 2013 in Dundas, Ontario. They're a 4 piece dreamy alternative band with catchy riffs and perfectly lazy vocals. There is definite 90's vibes to them even though I don't think they were alive for much of the 90's. The music would fit right in on the classic days of the Muchmusic Countdown. The singer has a more modern indie feel to his vocals or perhaps a bit of britpop. Kinda sounds like the guy from Phoenix. Good Anya released their latest EP last year titled "Good Effort" which is very true. There's 4 solid indie rock tracks that'll leave you wanting more. So then you can go see em live at the Baby G on Friday February 3rd. - Kris Gies
