A record we missed in 2017: Lexie (side project of Frankie Cosmos and Warehouse)

Lexie is a collaboration between NYC's bedroom pop chanteuse Frankie Cosmos and two members of Atlanta's Indie Rockers Warehouse (Alex Bailey and Doug Bleichner). The trio quietly released this side project's 8 track debut “Record Time” in June of 2017. The album, recorded with Carlos Hernandez of Ava Luna, lives up to both band’s past achievements, although it's obviously more skewed towards Greta Kline's intimate pop format. Those who are in desperate need of new material after enjoying 2016's sublime "Next Thing" should check it out. - Cameron Carr, photo by Sarah Cass





Wine Lips - "Opera Ghost" Music Video

One of my favorite records of 2017 was from Toronto garage trio Wine Lips. The whole album is great front to back with wild guitar and a thumpin rhythm section that’ll keep ya groovin’. They nail the fuzzy garage tones while keepin’ the tunes catchy enough to appeal to more than just fuzzheads. In their video for “Opera Ghost” the band is competing against each other in a hot dog eating contest which looks a good time. Watch out…it gets messy. Celebrate guitarist/vocalist Cam’s birthday at the Bovine Sex Club on January 13th where Wine Lips will be joined by Séance Sisters and Possum. – Kris Gies





Greenhouse - New Single, Shoegazin' at Hard Luck Bar 01.13

This Toronto based shoegaze band Greenhouse has just dropped a brand new single. “Acetate” has a peaceful beginning with Sunday afternoon vibes during the 90’s indie rock inspired verse. The band fires up the instrumentation for the chorus but keep the droning vocals that adds a nice contrast to the music. If the Smashing Pumpkins went full shoegaze it might sound like Greenhouse. They play live in Toronto at Hard Luck Bar on January 13th along with Tijuana Taxi and the Spiracles. – Kris Gies





Explode int the new year with Explode Into Colors

Portland felt #blessed in its own little way when Explode Into Colors reunited last year. There've been bursts of excitement on their end by way of a couple shows here and there since their reunion, but the next two nights are where the real party is going to be at.

The New Year's Eve weekend is going to be lit with two nights of colorful sets by them, as presented by XRAY.fm, but the supporting acts of each night are sure to provide some turn up as well. The bill for the 12.30 show includes the experimental cumbia of Sávila and grooves spun by Daniela Karina. NYE itself is tinged with r&b and hip hop, with soulful vocals and dancing from vocal and producer collaborators Maarquii + Jvnitor and a guaranteed sultry set from songstress Blossom.

Tickets are still available, so add one or both of these shows to your NYE itenerary. 





A pre-NYE party with Ethereal Sea and more

It's pretty much a general consensus among everyone who paid attention to the excess of crap that happened this year that 2017 can't fuck right off. Seeing as New Year's Eve celebrations are a big deal in Portland there's plenty of opportunity to say that sayonara we all seek, but for New Year's Eve eve? There will be some "heavy music for heavy times," as advertised. 

At the Kenton Club on 12.30, the purveyors of such heaviness range in their sonic density without fail, each elevating their sounds from a foundation of psych. Eugene's Sacred Trees involve hypnotic swirls of sound hazed by unrefined airs of lo-fi garage, while Robots of the Ancient World offer straight up stoner rock. Menin gets a little bit harsher will doom laden riffs, and Ethereal Sea embody facets of each, melding stoner, doom, psych and garage into a pretty powerful force.

Get the pregame started a night early.
