Cumquat Tape Release Show at Titan House July 16

As public service to the Philly DIY scene, the merry folks at Titan House refuse to stop the rock, and will be hosting a show that will blast their neighbors with everything from heavy fuzz to electronic backbeats, laughter to tears, and cigarette smoke to loud, sanctimonious conversations with a strong socialist overtone. First on the lineup is Cemetery Flowers, whose swirling atmospherics, driven by repetitive black metal progressions and layered feedback over massive '80s-sounding electronic drums, creates the perfect Burzum-JAMC storm that’ll make your ears hum. Cumquat, a.k.a. Kevin Sullivan is an experimental electronic project that makes heavy use of samples and found sound, altering them into swelling, looping, danceable rhythms. The vocals steadily pursue a melody throughout the chaos of altered, erratic noise and rhythmic samples. He'll be celebrating the release of his new EP, Prickly Glazer, out now on cassette via Gambling Debt Records. QQQ follow up with his classic dystopia-electronica sound, which emphasizes a more smooth, cruising texture in composition. And finally, touring act Grave Pool will close out the night with their sweeping surreal sound that is derivative just as much from '80's dream pop as from early ‘10's chillwave. Synth sounds expand and disperse like jetstreams, while guitars swell and echo like the revisiting of an old memory. Titan House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, $5, All Ages. - Bryce Woodcock





A Much Needed Night in R&B

 It's more than obvious that with what is happening in the United States and really the entire world around us, that both as minorities and Americans alike, we need to band together. Race and sexuality shouldn't serve as another barrier that separates us and with an upcoming lineup of racially diverse and fluid artists, biases and hate need not apply in any way, shape to this night.

We've got Blossom, who offers one of the only vocal r&b representations in Portland. You've probably heard her popular "Black Magic Woman," and the EYRST vocalist will most definitely bring some black woman magic to the bill. There will be quite a few opportunities to see Blossom this year, including Pickathon at the end of the summer, which she'll be playing along with Chanti Darling.

Oh, Chanti, Chanti, Chanti! The range on this handsome honey is unlike what most vocalists are capable of pulling off nowadays. Chanti and his Darling team of swirvers, twirlers and musicians have been everywhere lately, and it couldn't be more well deserved. Blending funk, r&b, soul and love, Chanti Darling are running wild with that 'best new band title' sashaying their way into ruling our world. 

Hailing from Seattle, SassyBlack split from her partner Stas Irons in THEESatisfaction and has been making it quite well on her own with her jazzy stylings. This will be her first performance in Portland, so let's welcome her well.

This show is TOMORROW at Holocene. It's 21 and over and will have DJ Lamar LeRoy hyping the vibe in between sets. Spend $12, come stand together with us and just have a damn good time.





Austin Favorites Holiday Mountain Want to Know Your Name in New J-Poptastic Music Video

Reigning Austin odd pop champions and 2014’s Deli Austin Artist of the Year Holiday Mountain are back to whack you upside the brain with a new and ultra-colorful music video that’ll get your summer party going. The vid, for new hard-dancing quirky ass pop song ‘Cómo Te Llamas,’ is all future fashion, exaggerated butts ‘n boobs and Holiday Mountain lead Laura Patiño using her trademark voice to ask what your name is while heading a troupe of brightly bedecked dancers (clothes designed by up-and-coming Austin fashion house Witchxxdoctor) through a surreal J-pop infused world of fun that has been put together by director Brittany Reeber. Holiday Mountain has been cemented as one of Austin’s groups most willing to flirt with pure pop music, while also being one of the acts most willing to push creative boundaries, and as you’ll see below, they’re still driving hard in that lane here in the middle of 2016. Get your weird on below, y’all.
