Scully bring their "California sunshine, Brooklyn grit" to Union Pool on 7.28

Scully formed after the breakup of California-based garage rock group The Splinters, when three of its core members reunited in Brooklyn. Their perfectly self-described brand of “California sunshine, Brooklyn grime” features easy going pop melodies blended with heavy psych influences, along with the scuzzy and lo-fi nature of garage rock. Last year the band released a split with La Luz that featured their track “Don’t Want That”. Scully’s latest single “Wave” puts the band’s poppy psych sound on display with shimmering guitar tones and hazy vocals. “Wave” is the first single off the four-pieces upcoming EP No Sense, which will be released on August 19th through Fire Talk. Scully will be playing Union Pool on July 28th in support of fellow psych-garage rockers Honey. - John Honan

Teen Body unveils video for "Bored Window" + plays Shea Stadium on 07.27

Teen Body's debut LP Get Home Safe flows between wispy, delicate sections and more agitated moments filled with with tension. The four-piece recently released a music video for single “Bored Window” that also plays along this dichotomy, opening with lighthearted and playful scenes of band comradery, at least until they start killing each other - in all likelihood because of creative disagreements and ego conflicts related to the band! The group's placid dream pop acts as a surreal commentary to the final, bloody scenes, in a way remoiniscent of Spike Lee's use of loungy jazz over violent sequences. Teen Body will be playing live July 27th at Shea Stadium. - John Honan





PDX Pop Now Day 3 - What to Expect

 PDX Pop Now's 2016 festival weekend is coming to a close and with its posted lineup, it'll be ending on a high note. Youth bands Fossa Club and the Living Skins open up this sunny Sunday, leading into the blowing up and of Blowout.

Cilantro will be offering a more worldly spice, followed up by a lively punked fueled performance from Bobby Peru.

Deli Portland favorites A Volcano, Force Publique and Cat Hoch have slots on the closing day, along with experimental noise act Consumer, who shared his spontaneous sounds on the PDX Pop segment featured on KATU.

Renaissance Coalition breakout artist Maze Koroma will spit some mad flows just before one of Portland's current biggest bands Summer Cannibals closes out this year's fest just before the 10 o' clock hour.

This year's PDX Pop Now festival was one of the best to date, with an outstanding turnout backing one of the most diverse lineups in its history. It'll be exciting to see what the non-profit has up its sleeve next.





PDX Pop Now Day 2 - What to Expect

Day 2 of PDX Pop Now actually starts at noon, with Friends of Noise and Music in the Schools act The Scribes. Mr. Bones will be repping an early but good spot for Good Cheer Records, and the Tamed West round out a nice early afternoon block of performances before the afternoon starts kicking in.

Andrew Endres Collective is bringing some jazzy vibes to the fest and Wave Action is filling in for Little Star just before 3:30. 

Old Grape God and Speaker Minds are the fest's hip hop flavor for the day leading into punk af Tiny Knives and Love Cop, who have got their self described "hood goth" on lock.

Experimental artist Antecessor will ring the night in with a bit of strangeness, followed by a block of r&b feels from Lola Buzzkill and Fur Coats. Older school Portlanders Wooden Indian Burial Ground are closing out the night on a garagey note.

With just today and tomorrow left, PDX Pop has been off to a great start!





Last Littler Philly Show (For Now) at Everybody Hits July 23

The lifespan of an indie band is often short-lived in these modern times, and the Philly DIY scene is bracing itself for another little heartbreak, as half the members of four-piece Littler prepare to move across the country. It hurts to see them go, especially as they were starting to receive a bit of national attention. Their bubbly brand of Slumberland-soaked twee-punk and emotion sheathed in prickly fuzz will be sorely missed, and I'll be keeping an eye to the western horizon in hopes of their return. The band's last booked show in Philly will be held tonight at Everybody Hits, with a host of avant acts that will add an interesting contrast to Littler’s unabashed pop devotion. Ursula, a recent transplant to Philadelphia and self-proclaimed no-wave band, will open the night with songs that know structure but no tune. Their decidedly unmelodious, repetitive riffs and harsh vocals hang in tattered shreds from steady, plodding beats, seemingly the only orienting component of the music. Palm, another local favorite, will also be performing their incredibly nuanced, arcane, avant-math-pop, which treads the seam between melody and dissonance, while covering more compositional ground within a single song than many bands cover in an entire album.
