Daydream Machine Releases New Single - Modern Prophecy

Portland's Daydream Machine has released a new neo-psych, single entitled, "Modern Prophecy." The band is gearing up to release their full length album, The Show Must Not Go On LP in March 2017 and features appearances by: The Dandy Warhols’ Peter Holmström, Federale’s Colin Sheridan, The Upsidedown’s Matt Moore, and M. Ward/Rick Bain keyboardist Nathan Junior. It's been three years since we've seen anything from Daydream Machine so we're super excited to see new music coming from them!

Take a listen to "Modern Prophecy" below and keep an ear out for the band's full length album.

Sip that Soul Syrup with Tribe Mars Tonight

Have yourself a hefty pour of some sensually funky soul syrup with Tribe Mars, who amid a lineup change still boast the same incredible output. Now featuring the talented Vaughn Kimmons (of POPgoji and as Brown Alice), the group's interesting arrangements are only elevated by the ardent vocality of Kimmons.

Rescheduled from its original weather-postponed date and location, Tribe Mars will be joining Blossom tonight at new downtown nightclub NYX for some Sunday Sessions vibes, hosted by multitalented singer-songwriter-producer Fritzwa.

It's free, so let your soul glow up in the city's newest spot with music starting at 9pm.

Mood Music: Burials - 'Laccolith'

 Proggressive metal mavens Burials have taken shredding to a whole new level since their self-titled debut back in 2009. Though we've only seen one other release from them so far, 2013's The Tide, the boys are back with a new split with the black metal messiahs of Los Angeles, Exhausted Prayer. That split ever so appropriately dropped yesterday, on the first Friday the 13th of 2017, and its release show is tonight.

One of our favorite local doom bands Usnea will be playing, along with Chico, California's Touch Fuzzy Get Dizzy and newer outfit Tithe, with this being their first show. Get in the mood and catch them all tonight at the High Water Mark. Proceeds from the $8 show are going to Planned Parenthood.

Girl Fest is Giving Us Life

A much needed celebration of female power, Girl Fest is back with a showcase of some of Portland's best female musicians of the moment. Hosted by the soulful Blossom, this year's installation of GF touches on a few different genres, including jazz, folk and hip hop, to me enjoyed by all ages.

Coco Columbia has been a local love we've grow to appreciate more and more, with her refreshingly modern and eclectic take on jazz. Her voice, along with her production, have become indicative of the variety of other music scenes the city provides.

Other upbeat offerings come from some of the only female rap artists in Portland's market right now, including Karma Rivera. Taking a beat and fully making it her own, Karma's rhymes give the best of relatable expression and fun quips. Building off of that, duo Neka & Kahlo mix angelic bedroom pop with hip hop that results in a trappy type R&B that we need much more of.

Courtney Noe could easily dominate the pop charts with her retro ballads and after the Fish Eye EP, we've been dying for more of Haley Heynderickx's acoustic folk.

Thankfully Girl Fest 2017 is still happening tonight at the Crystal Ballroom. It's an all ages show, including some performances from young artists involved with local youth music nonprofit My Voice Music, so bring all your loved ones out for a night of true female empowerment.
