Ora Cogan shares two songs from upcoming album, plays Union Pool on 05/14

Ora Cogan plays a unique blend of psychedelic folk, dark wave ambient and experimental dream pop.  Her new album Crickets is scheduled for a full release later this year, but is currently sharing two tracks to listen to now.  Title track “Crickets” presents a circular time signature via cascading guitar figure and bell chime percussion.  Ms. Cogan’s vocals emerge unexpectedly and float above the defined rhythm, adhering to a much looser structure.  A variety of keyboard synths are employed, creating pulsating textures underneath changing segments.  There are elements of Fairport Convention’s Sandy Denny and Renaissance’s Annie Haslam in the sweetly powerful vocal phrasing and loose psych-folk performance.  Second track “The Light” builds off of a tambourine and snare percussion pattern with syncopated counter strikes.  Ora’s vocals feel more intimate here, leaning closer to the ethereal charm of Kate Bush.  Ms. Cogan will be appearing at Union Pool on 05/14. - Dave Cromwell


Green Noise Reopens, Celebrates with DJs and Live Music

Portland is the kind of place where vinyl appreciation is taken seriously amongst much of the masses. While we've lost some of our beloved record shops, the few that are still around are special places that see much business at times other than just Record Store Day. Green Noise Records has lasted throughout the years, changing locations a couple times since its original southeast locale, but they've found yet another new up in northeast that they're celebrating throughout the weekend.

Starting today, Green Noise is hosting their own sort of welcoming party, slated with sets from djs and bands alike. Most of today's festivities, which started around noon, are dj sets. Patrons are invited to peruse the shop's offerings while enjoying records spun by djs like Vera Rubin, Erich Zann and Ken Dirtnap, or tomorrow's live performances from EMS, Low Culture and Davey Quinn

Admission is free and if you scope a few records you'd like to pick up, everything is 15% off the whole weekend. Come check out Green Noise's new space, some awesome bands and djs, and some new vinyl sounds as well.

30 Best Places for Music in PDX? Let's see!

 Clickit Ticket, a ticket resale marketplace that specializes in helping customers find sold out or otherwise hard to get tickets, has taken the time to compile a list of the 30 best places to catch live music in Portland. For locals, some of the names on the list aren't surprising. Places like Mississippi Studios and Holocene are essentially household names and recurring weekend haunts at this point.

Where the gets interesting is with its featuring of certain less popular-to-the-masses spots. They're not all by any means venues but certain diamonds in the rough, like Spinella's Off the Wall or Andina Restaurant, where patrons can catch more varied arrays of music.

Part list for newscomers and tourists, part reminder of places that haven't closed down yet for locals, Clickit Ticket's list is fairly well rounded. Look at it in full and see all the ones you've been to HERE.
