Speed up your pulse tomorrow at Holocene

 The next installment of Willamette Week's quarterly showcase, Pulse, is coming up tomorrow with a lineup that's set to liven things up. WW's Best New Artist Last Artful, Dodgr will be headlining the event with her lit, trappy beats and a tone of voice that brings even more intrigue to her flow.

Current Deli Portland Artist of the Month nominees Pleasure Curses will be mixing up the night with a bit of electronica just after the new musical project from Ripley Snell and Grape God, Wine+Coffee, opens up the night with their experimental hip hop outlet.

Pulse is a free, quarterly 21 and over event that's meant to feature some of Portland's best in the underappreciated hip hop and r&b scene. With lineup's like this and of Pulse's past, they're doing a damn good job at it.


Rare Diagram debut new live lineup

 Rare Diagram's latest release, Secret Shot, boasts an elevated sound from the band. Taking a more orchestral route to their already voluminous chamber-esque indie pop, Secret Shot shows Rare Diagram in their next phase.

To properly express their higher level, Rare Diagram's next show will be ramped up for proper execution. Their live set will now feature two additional backup singers and a trombone quartet, enhancing the beauty of the stage performance to match the album's grace.

Also on the June 8th Bunk Bar show bill is Astro Tan, who are dropping their new psych tinged r&b cut Whiskey + Water EP and Old Wave, who will be rounding out the night with their twee, Of Montreal like indie pop.

Come witness the new bloom of Rare Diagram, pick up a new tape and sway about.

PREMIERE: The Reverberations - "Mess Up Your Mind"

 The Reverberations make you take a trip back in time to rock's golden era of the 60's, with their keen ability to dial in to the classics without seeming forced or stale. They bring that element of lighthearted fun that made 60's era garage and psychedelia so alluring (well, fun and drugs).

Each member steadily grew and established their musical prowess in other bands like The CRY! and Sundaze, bringing each of their individual talents together in a way that doesn't sound like your standard fuzzed out band.

The Reverberations are gearing up to release their new LP Mess Up Your Mind. If the title track is any indication of how the rest of the album will sound, then we're all in for a tripped out treat.

Check out the premiere track "Mess Up Your Mind" below.

Let time fly with BCxLD

 The pairing of a good producer and a great emcee is like that of a strong celebrity couple -- only sheer magic can come of it. That's why My, How Time Flies, a music project from emcee Lucas Dix (of Jellyfish Brigade) and producer Brass Clouds, should be well received.

Making music together as BCxLD, the two have got chill hip hop mastered. With the second installment, My, How Time Flies II, just dropping in May, the duo lay out slickly delivered rhymes over concrete beats, resulting in what's almost like the Pacific Northwest version of Atmosphere. Many tracks call for a contemplative reaction, while others just straigh make you want to bob your head to the beat.

My, How Time Flies I and II can be streamed on the duo's Bandcamp page and for updates on when the next in the series is coming out, like them on Facebook.
