New Lux Perpetua EP Available for Streaming & Download

Since the turn of 2016, Lux Perpetua aka Justin Wolf has been on a monthly EP releasing run. His latest Music for Solipsistic Tendencies meshes frenetic experimental folk with mellower moments of internal contemplation. It’s as if the search party expanded the perimeter, only to realize what they were looking for was too close to originally see. 

Shaking Through w/Hemming

For the premiere episode of the new season of Weathervane Music's Shaking Through (above), the documentary series revamped its usual format a bit, giving us a more in-depth look at their featured artist Hemming (a.k.a. Candice Martello), who has already had quite an interesting journey in the music industry. From getting her feet wet fronting the indie-punk duo Omar to winning VH1's reality show music competition Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, you definitely learn some valuable lessons from Martello's experiences and get the honesty that she's now trying to achieve with her music. You also find her creating a wonderful track, "All I Want," with friends Augusta Koch and Allegra Anka of Cayetana and Matt Schimelfenig and Pat Brier of Three Man Cannon. Take the new single for a spin and download it for free below!

PDX Pop Now's Comp release party coming soon

 Exactly one week from now, Holocene will be host to yet another year of PDX Pop Now's compilation release show.

This year's release show will highlights three of the comp's artists, with performances by classic pop act the Minders, along with the noisey indie rock of Months and the endlessly entertaining experimental set from Kulululu.

Admission to the all ages May 15th show is $8-$10, which comes with either a physical or digital copy of the compilation. Listen to Months' comp contribution, "Cannibal," below.

Brooklyn's Stone Cold Fox celebrates new EP at Mercury Lounge tomorrow (5/7)

Last week, Brooklyn indie rock quartet Stone Cold Fox released its electric new EP, ‘Tunnel Vision.’ Reportedly recorded over the course of two years yet bursting with urgency, the five-song effort starts its ominous magic with the reverb-backed “Contagion” (streaming below), a track that pleasantly melds The Strokes’ early ruggedness with Tame Impala’s solid psych rock. Middle track “Morning Light,” similarly, radiates with a guitar-based warmth that could be a refreshing antedote to a gray day, recalling the great ELO tracks of the late ‘70s. In short, ‘Tunnel Vision’ illuminates wonderfully strange magic. To celebrate the EP, Stone Cold Fox plays at Mercury Lounge tomorrow (5/7). – Zach Weg

Hurry Record Release Show at Everybody Hits May 6

This evening at Everybody Hits locals Hurry will be celebrating the release of their new LP Guided Meditation, out now via Lame-O-Records. The positive reviews have already started coming in for the album, and are well-deserved. The project has come a long way from Matt Scottoline’s bedroom (probably?) to a tight and polished trio with 2 LPs under the belt. The group is filled out by the DeCarolis duo of Rob (ex-Univox) and Joe (Psychic Teens), who play drums and bass respectively. Markedly more produced, Guided Meditation drops a lot of the fuzz for nimble lead guitar lines and shifts in dynamics. Not to say there isn’t still a bunch of crunchy guitars, because there are, but the range of Scottoline’s songwriting and the bands attention to detail are more apparent on this latest batch of recordings. Fans of Teenage Fanclub will still dig this album, but so will fans of Brian Wilson. The guys from Hurry also recruited a bunch of friend’s to come along for the ride tonight, which includes Telepathic, Fake Problems frontman Chris Farren, and Cave People. Everybody Hits, 529 W Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $5, All Ages - Adam G.
