New Taiwan Housing Project LP Available for Streaming

Spellbinding, noisy, experimental, unfiltered rock that resonates and lingers, Veblen Death Mask, the new album from Taiwan Housing Project, will be officially released tomorrow via Kill Rock Stars, but you can currently stream it in full over at Noisey. The album may feel chaotic at first; however, those non-traditional instrumental combinations create an engaging unpredictability, while still capturing pop sensibilities amid the heavy churning undertow. Catch Taiwan Housing Project’s record release show this Saturday, May 6 at Johnny Brenda's with Igneous Eyes and ESCAPE-ISM!





Lo-Fi Fraidycat take their stream of consciousness songs to Aalphaville on 05.06

Sometimes the simple things are best. That's true for the music of Fraidycat, an indie rock group who play no-nonsense songs about -- as their Facebook page professes -- "stuff that came up in therapy." For anyone needing a good dose of catharsis in the form of some upbeat tunes, Fraidycat will play ALPHAVILLE on May 6th, along with True Dreams, Yucky Duster, and Haybaby. It's all to celebrate the release of Other Better Places, their debut LP, which includes short bursts of poppy emotion in the form of tracks like "Best Pie" and "Fortune Cookies." You can stream the latter below. - Will Sisskind

The Toads' ode to Portland

Portland has become quite the popular place over the last few years. The influx of new residents has pretty much ruined what old locals have considered to be all that's in the city, with all the condos going up and old haunts going down essentially serving as proof of that.

But no matter how much Portlandia may have skewed (somehow accurately and inaccurately all at once) their depiction of Portland, The Toads have written their own little ditty about this rainy city. It reigns incredibly true.

With lyrics touching on how open Portland is with nearly every type of social and individual freedom, "Portland, Or" shows how much The Toads love their town in a catchy, pop-punky way. If anything, it should be the city's anthem. 

Give it a listen below and see how much of it sounds "so typically Portland."





Shadowlands climb up the steep and thorny way to heaven

Shadowlands know what's up when it comes to brooding darkwave and post-punk. Their sonance aligns more with the horror-esque sounds of a more "traditional" '80s style of post-punk while still remaining original, and definitely not coming off replicated. It's for this reason they're one of the first acts to come to mind when thinking of local bands of this genre in general, and why all of you voted them your favorite band to play the recent darkwave and post-punk festival Out From the Shadows Fest.

Another special victory for Shadowlands is that they've been chosen to play the next Brickbat Mansion night, Portland's female-led goth and darkwave DJ night. Lead singer Amy Sabin will join resident spinners DJ Curatix and DJ Wednesday in being the premiere ladies of the night.

This edition of Brickbat Mansion is an RSVP event held at the steep and thorny way to heaven on May 5, so if you wish to attend, respond via the Facebook event or by sending an email to rsvp@thesteepandthornywaytoheaven.com. Listen to the Shadowlands track "Fade" below and be on the lookout for their video for "Liberation," coming soon.
