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.

GUN help keep PDX punk alive

 Remember back in the good ol' days when punk wasn't all about how you dressed, but almost all about how you played and the raw appeal of your music? Keeping in that faith, GUN are maintaining that magic with their sheer, unapologetic hardcore punk, performed through a partly performance art veil.

Their self titled demo blasts into your ear drums with a sharp force and includes some deep cuts from the Kingsmen and Rudimentary Peni, but it's their stage presence that will really draw you in. In a somewhat Delocated fashion, GUN evoke feelings of spirited mayhem with loud bursts and shouts of aural chaos.

Become a part of the GUN movement and start your June off with them, along with the Sweatpants, URCHIN and On Drugs, at the Dacha tomorrow night. They'll be leaving for a West Coast tour the beginning of July, so get your fill of them live while you can. It's a sight to be seen.

PREMIERE: WE THE WILD - "Exodus and Decay"

Portland isnt' exactly known for it's hardcore scene. As a town that's had indie music on lock for years, the underlying scene doesn't get nearly the credit it should, especially when compared to how thriving it is elsewhere. 

Aside from the genre's suppression, the obvious slow death of the music community as a whole has left many somewhat at a loss. Locals We the Wild found inspiration out of this, using the current state as fuel for writing their upcoming debut full length From the Cities We Fled, to be released in August.

Today we're premiering "Exodus and Decay," which pulls direct influence from what's happening all around us. Speaking of the track, the band says: 

"'Exodus and Decay' was written about the alarming state of portland's local hardcore scene, and the attitude of apathy that locals have taken to our passion for the music we create. Our city is letting what we've put all our heart and soul into simply rot away in the streets. And bands are finding themselves seeking opportunities in other cities with audiences that provide the support and attentiveness that we need to sustain ourselves.”

PREMIERE: Casey Burge - "Comin' Fulfilled"

We'd like to start your morning off with a fresh track from a familiar face and a new label. Casey Burge, mostly known for his involvement in his other bands Minden and No Lala, has released a solo track on new artist development group and record label Golden Brown, based in Portland.

A total of three PDX artists, including Burge, made it onto the first in the label's international Perfectly Toasted Compilation series and their debut release, Perfectly Toasted, Vol. 1. His track "Comin' Fulfilled" opens up the compilation and gives a great introduction to the style and feel the label is going for-ultimate chill.

Make your gloomy morning a little more enjoyable by giving Casey's song a listen below and sneaking a peek at the rest of the Perfectly Toasted, Vol. 1, which comes out June 17th.
