Portland, Oregon: the land of hippies, acoustic guitars and forests. But what else is lurking among these stereotyped tropes that Portlandia has forever cemented in larger American consciousness? Surely a TV show cannot fully define a city—and never has. In order to reveal a richer look at the ever-evolving, highly varied culture of the city, we wanted to offer our take on a few of the most interesting bands making music in that city right now.

Before even reaching Boise’s downtown there was something different in the air for this year’s Treefort Music Festival . Namely, there were construction cranes cutting through the Boise skyline, a sight unseen for at least seven years. Most notable is the skyrise sprouting at the corner of 8th and Main Streets, a site previously referred to as The Boise Hole, for its ambitious plans for large development and subsequent loss of backing — it was literally a giant hole in the ground for more than 10 years, a downtown void for a decade, the mental presence of something larger, but [...]
10. TAME IMPALA Lonerism [Modular] LEGGI LA RECENSIONE Kevin Parker è un tipo tutto svampito, ma quando prende in mano la chitarra sa cosa farne eccome. Anzi, “Lonerism”, una sorta di “Magical Mistery Tour” aggiornato al 2012 (psichedelica pop e rock) è praticamente interamente opera sua: è lui che pensa, prova, suona sei e quattro corde nonché pianoforte, pelli e tutto ciò che gli capita a tiro, e registra. Salvo portarsi appresso, ovviamente, una band in [...]

There's no Friday Films this week, but never fear: Eaux have released, rather handily, a new video! I saw Eaux supporting Dillon a month or so back, and enjoyed it thoroughly; not just the aesthetics of Sian Ahern, but their overall sounds - swarms and swirls of dense, noirish electronic pop. Listening to their songs is like shutting yourself in a gloomy, poky boudoir, candlelit, only the ghosts of furniture visible, the world a door away but miles and years away, a forgotten thing, an unwanted thing.

Two strong music videos from Portland bands, both with "gold" in the title, and both with the theme of returning to nature, hit the internets this week. Let's have a look, shall we? From AU , we get a glimpse of a boy who goes to the Mediterranean Sea's golden shores to find his truer self. Italian Roberto Ortu directs. Second, post-rockers Forest Park get back to their pre-adult selves, even their pre-modern [...]

"Everybody want to be a rapper, glad I'm an emcee." Tha Guyver takes some shots at the haters on this new track "Blessings". The song is produced by A.U. and is off Tha Guyver's forthcoming EP, Ignorant Excellence . The EP is being produced entirely by Na$im Williams, except for this track, which was produced by A.U. Peep it below.
Photo Credit: Lexi Namer It’s hard to describe what amazing musicians AU (@autheband) are - you have to see it for yourself. Unfortunately, there weren’t many people experiencing the jaw-dropping musicianship at Mercury Lounge’s early show on Thursday evening, with the room nowhere near as full as it often gets for the late night shows. Still, the fans that showed up for Portland based AU and Tu Fawning (@tufawning) were treated to a great night of [...]

For those of you on the West Coast right now you could do a lot worse than head to Portland right now and attend PDX Pop Now! at Refuge PDX (116 SE Yamhill, Portland, OR 97214) on July 20th - 22nd for (free & all-ages). This year's fest will include performances by AAN, AU, Lord [...]
As the front-woman with Au Revoir Simone , Erika Spring both moved feet and broke hearts. On Hidden , the first taster of her solo material, she takes all the positive elements of that band and simply raises the level. Marching up the hill and planting her flag firmly in the ground from the outset, Hidden is a measured but wholly confident blast of electro-pop that eats up all the usual, seemingly OTT, superlatives we seem to bring out with every release from the Cascine label; dreamy , effortless, intoxicating, luxurious, transcendental.. .
