PORTLAND CELLO PROJECT ( Aladdin Theater , 3017 SE Milwaukie) The hometown honeys in the Portland Cello Project bring you the usual bombast of their annual holiday show—now with extra Beck! They'll be playing songs from his new sheet-music-only release Song Reader , so this might be your only chance to hear that new album out loud—unless you're really good at reading sheet music.

The prolific Ty Segall is back with another great album. Being prolific in any field can be a sign of a furtive, inquisitive, restless spirit. Keen to push the boundaries, always striving to test oneself or, in Ty Segall's case, his audience as well. Equally it could be a sign of a lack of quality control, just throwing stuff out there, no sense of direction or plan, a reckless abandon about what it is you are presenting and what it says about you. It's clear...
Zur Grundausstattung jedes Haushalts bis weit in die neunziger Jahre hinein gehörte selbstverständlich: der Videorekorder. Ob man nun eifriger Nutzer von Videotheken war oder einfach nur die Lieblingssendung aufzeichnete, das Überspielen, Zurückspulen und die charakteristischen Streifen im Bild – die sich mit jedem Abspielen häuften – wurden zwangsläufig zum festen Bestandteil vieler in dieser Zeit gesehener Lieblingsfilme. Das war alles natürlich unglaublich umständlich, aber auch auf eine im Rückblick sehr erleichternde Weise unperfekt: War das Band kaputt, konnte man den Film halt nicht sehen – Sicherheitskopien, Torrent-Download, YouTube oder Streaming gab es ja noch nicht.

weiter, weiter, weiter, weiter ? ty segall gönnt sich keine verschnaufpause und langsam macht dieser junge typ wirklich sprachlos. mit »twins« liegt nun sein drittes album des jahres auf dem plattenteller und nein, wir hören keine überavantgardistischen ausflüge, die ins unendliche universum schielen, wie es output-maschinen wie omar rodriguez-lopez zelebrieren, wir hören das, was wir hören wollen von diesem wunderknaben...
The year's not done offering its best new releases just yet. Witness Tame Impala 's Lonerism , the Perth, Australia band’s eagerly anticipated second album which doesn't for a moment fail to impress on what our Music Director, Don Yates, calls "another imaginatively crafted set of expansive psych-rock that’s both sonically adventurous and highly melodic, with densely produced songs featuring swirling, effects-laden guitars, spacey synths, fuzzy bass, rumbling drums and Kevin Parker’s dreamy, Lennonesque vocals." Although you might not always agree with their ratings, Pitchfork gave the album a glowing and extremely rare 9.0 in its Best [...]
Via Pitchfork , Ty Segall and a Chicago local news team proved to be a winning combination yesterday, and with Twins arriving October 9th, Ty's been on a weird video bender of late.

In a world gone wild with all the socio-poltical-economic unrest you can handle; at least we can look beyond the former-first world problems for those kernels of musical inspiration from the week. After weeding through the hype about Chris Brown's controversial tattoo, the early 'leak' of Kanye's Cruel Summer comp or the fact that Blink-182 believe their best is still to come; we now look at what made our week more than worthwhile in no particular order. Tomorrow, Saturday, Se...
