Weekend Warrior, October 20 - 22

Play The Songs You Like, the new full-length album from Radiator Hospital, officially comes out today via Salinas Records. In a corresponding move, the band will headline a release show this evening at First Unitarian Church. There’s a fuzzy familiarity in these songs - a bouncy enthusiasm that one can latch on to. Lyrically, one finds him/herself paging through a photo album as those sharp but ever-fading memories push back up to the surface. Even the sad points gain a luminous glow, the more time passes. The quartet continuously finds a way to tap into and trigger the communality of personal experiences, with a delicate, united, melodic touch. Tonight, they’ll be joined by the tender-rocking Baltimore trio of Outer Spaces, and capturing a kindred-comforting warmth, Emi Night-led Strawberry Runners, whose new EP In the Garden, In the Night is also now available courtesy of Salinas Records, reinforces the billing.  With a new EP on the way, local trio Eight will kick off the festivities. – Michael Colavita

New The Trust Fund Kids EP Available for Streaming & Download

As he builds toward a debut LP, Kevin Connor, a.k.a. The Trust Fund Kids, recently issued a fresh EP The Sky Looks Like A Videogame. Creating a musical compound of upbeat jangle with underlying ghostly synth/keys, these songs pleasantly haunt. Nightmarish tales of isolation gather steam, as the light fixtures in a narrative tunnel are gradually brought to full power. There’s a vibrancy that persists through the dim times.





PREMIERE: Homies - "Time Goes By"

There are many things lacking in Portland as a place, especially within the music scene. Despite the obvious deficiency in diversity, there are key figures and artists within the scene that continually contribute to changing that. Homies are considered some of these figures. Led by Omar Cervantes and Ralf Rodriguez, the hazy, fuzz laden Spanish dream-surf they produce is one to easily enjoy. Their newest music video provides just as much of that minimalistic pleasure.

Artistically shot, the video that accompanying their track "Time Goes By" is in all black and white, splicing in deep notes about the concept of time, and how it is essentially meaningless. Flames and a flower are an intro before displaying "nada es nuestro." Translating to "nothing is ours," it's a perfect delineation of what the video is trying to portray.

Nothing, including time, may be truly ours, but there are still positive things that can be done with the construct. This Saturday 10.19, Homies are playing La Fuerza: a Bori-Mex Benefit, a disaster relief fundraiser meant to benefit those who suffered during the hurricanes in Mexico and Puerto Rico being held at the Portland Mercado. Sets from Brown Calculus, CilantroMáscaras, LuvJonez and Coast2c will also be happening, with proceeds going to the community kitchen construction project by Patronato de Arte ContemporáneoOregon para Puerto Rico and Jóvenes x Puerto Rico. There's even a tampon drive for Portland Menstrual Society and Amy Nieto-Cruz's donation to Puerto Rico so bring new, unopened product.

Until then, enjoy Homies' new video below.

Lizard Kisses opens for Florist at The Park Church Co-op on 10.27

If you’re a fan of Florist’s ambient folk melodies and subtle production, you’re probably pretty excited about the group’s latest album and October 27th headlining show at The Park Church Co-op. You’ll probably also fall for opener Lizard Kisses. The Brooklyn collective’s music has a similar melancholic minimalism, though veering in its own directions. Light on percussion, heavy on dual low-high vocals, and full of charming instrumentation like synth and glockenspiel, Lizard Kisses’ sound is somber and heartwarming at the same time. Get to the show early and see if you can resist falling for them. – Cameron Carr

Folk artist Sierra Blanca "Paints the Road" in new video

Nashville native via El Paso, Texas, Jethro Gaglione is the multi-instrumentalist behind Sierra Blanca. Having recently been featured by Spotify's Fresh Folk playlist, the artist is looking to continue building on the momentum by premiering here "Paint the Road", a DIY project crafted from footage Gaglione shot during his trip from Nashville back to his home of El Paso, featuring many friends and family he met along the way. It's a road trip song in the tradition of Willie Nelson's classic "On the Road Again", yet closer to the relaxed front-porch style of Iron & Wine. Sierra Blanca's EP Honorable Mention is out November 10, 2017, and you can catch him live on the 9th at The Cobra for the release party. - Chris Thiessen
