Wheetay brings semi-electronic soul to The Tin Roof (10.11) & The Country (10.13)

The funky, stripped-down Southern soul made by emerging act Wheetay—fronted by Thomas White—is exactly what the Nashville scene needs right now. White takes on the responsibility of writing, recording, producing, mixing, and mastering all the tracks, yet he still considers the project a collaborative effort as his friends play a role in inspiring his tracks and bringing them to life. Explained in his own words as a “lo-fi approach to high fidelity music,” Wheetay is finally taking to the stage with a lineup of live shows, in which he will combine live instruments with looping tracks. The sultry, semi-electronic sound created by White and co. is fresh, fun, and a nice change of pace for Music City. If you can’t make his show tonight at the Tin Roof, then definitely make sure to catch him opening for Willie Shaw at The Country on the 13th. - Lilly Milman

Grooms hosts Brooklyn Bazaar Release Show on 10.25

Returning with a fifth album set to further the band’s exploration of ambience and shoegazey guitar effects, Grooms brings the music to Brooklyn Bazaar on October 25. Lead singles from Exit Index showcase swelling synths amidst the moody wash of sound without straying from Grooms’ usual noisy fare. The band’s brigade of fuzz and other-worldly effects is ideal for live shows where the onslaught of guitar and drums crashes into you with the force of a brick wall. One of the few brick walls you should be excited to crash into. – Cameron Carr





Isador releases debut single "Falling"

Warren Heller, formerly of Dream Logic and now performing as Isador, has released his first single under his new moniker called "Falling". The new track comes as Heller's first as a signee of 300 Entertainment, the label of Fetty Wap, Migos, and Young Thug. "Falling"'s repeating lyrics and building echoing vocals have a trance-like quality about them; when taken with the thumping beat, the song takes on an intoxicating groove much like Heller's remix of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky", which in 2013 alerted many new listeners to this rising talent. Listen to "Falling" below. - Will Sisskind

The Shacks take their dream-pop to scattered venues across the US in the fall

It’s difficult to believe that The Shacks’ “Strange Boy” was the first song that Shannon Wise ever recorded, but that’s how the story goes. The New York based duo (made up of Wise and Max Shrager) formed almost by accident, which only amplifies their chemistry. When Shrager’s whimsical arrangements are combined with Wise’s saccharine soprano, a sound akin to magic is created. The Shacks’ debut self-titled EP is a spooky and sweet bedroom pop masterpiece, and it leaves the listener wanting more. This fall they'll be playing a bunch of shows scattered across the US. Our friends at Delicious Audio asked guitarist Max Shrager a few questions about his guitar tone, see link below. Check out their latest video for single "The Strange Effect," streaming below. - Lilly Milman

Delicious Audio Q&A with Max Shrager of THe Shacks about guitar pedals and tone.





Friends of Noise hosts music for everyone!

Advocates of all-age safe spaces and music venues, local organization Friends of Noise is doing yet another bit of good to bring music to community... for free. 

From 4pm-8-pm today, Friends of Noise is hosting their "Music For Everyone Day" at Portland City Hall. This is the nonprofit's second attempt at throwing this event, since the initial date had to be rescheduled due to poor air quality caused by the wildfires surrounding the city. Nevertheless, FoN have forged on to bring a wide range of artists to those around the downtown Portland area today.

Young artists are strongly supported by FoN and a couple of them will be taking the stage, like Daniel “D.J. Max” Lasuncet and 15-year-old singer/songwriter JoJo Scott. My Voice Music project BLK + IVY will also perform, along with poet Maurisa Destiny Golden and some of the bigger Portland names. Skull Diver's alternative psych rock is sure to make everyone swoon, while the raw energy of the Woolen Men should perfectly juxtapose the gloominess of today. 

Other youth-oriented organizations and programs were also a part of making this event possible, such as My Voice Music, Outside the Frame, Marrow PDX, Momentum Alliance, SMRYC, the Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls and the Bus Project. It should be noted that water and restrooms are available inside Portland City Hall, but that patrons will have to undergo a back check upon entry. 

If you're looking for something free, fun and inclusive of all-ages and people, Music For Everyone Day is definitely something worth checking out.
