A door stands open on the beach, framing the incoming surf. This is the opening shot of the new video for “Energy” from Julia Logue, and also serves as the framing metaphor for the Portland singer’s most ambitious video to date. “Energy” is the penultimate track on Welcome To Your Sunrise, Logue’s debut record released just at the end of last year, and the song serves as the setup to the record’s titular closer, the dusky arpeggios building over a lurching beat, with Logue looking for a way through. Repeated throughout the song are the following lines, more mantra than hook: I don’t like what ..read more

It seems fitting that the sun was shining the day Brainstory came to town, one of the first late spring days in Portland that carries with it the faint tune of summer. Brainstory is a sunny band, unequivocally Californian, and sprawling into all the nuances of that descriptor, taking up the lineages of jazz, rock, soul, and r&b, drawn cross-country and baked together under the light of a psychedelic star. As the sun set, they took the stage at Mississippi Studios to the pause menu theme from Goldeneye N64 before launching into an opening jam, and then into “Listen,” the third track from th ..read more

Old Grape God digs in on EATING OVER THE TRASH

From the opening bars of EATING OVER THE TRASH, the new self-produced album from Old Grape God, the pressure is mounting. If you’ve been counting, it’s the Portland rapper’s staggering 41st release, and that number is itself a testament to the truth of the project’s emotional core, which is learning how to balance the external pressures of life by exerting equal and opposite pressure back outwards. For Old Grape God, that outward pressure is the act of creation, a positive force which allows the artist to maintain an equilibrium with their environment. If all the talk of unseen pressures soun ..read more

Where does a song come from? Is it birthed from within, or is it floating out there somewhere, waiting to be caught? The answer, as explored on ODDITIES VOL. 1, the new project from Saroon, is both and neither. The truth is more like: songs come from the intersection between the self and the world, and rather than thinking of songs as objects, we might instead consider them to be a process. To really understand ODDITIES, VOL. 1, it might help to look back at the birthplace of this collection of songs, namely Honest Jams, a songwriting podcast hosted by ayal (who releases music as Saroon) and ..read more
