PREMIERE: We Are Parasols - "No Movement"

On this gloriously sunny Friday the 13th, the Deli would like to cloak the sun's bright rays with a new, darkwavey track from We Are Parasols. "No Movement" guides you through its aphotic tones, baiting you with low tempos and hauntingly angelic vocals. Brooding and moody, the track is both calming and chill while still provoking sonic interest.

The satisfyingly hypnotic video for "No Movement" is hard not to zone out to. Its black and white cyclical machine work visuals calls for a droned mental state. As the second single to come off We Are Parasol's upcoming debut Infrastructure, "No Movement" makes a lasting impression as an indicator of the band's potential output, and more than substantiates their place in Portland's darker scene.

Infrastructure comes out May 20th on the bands' No Movement Records. Check out the video for "No Movement" below.

Animal Eyes are back with 'Where We Go'

Animals Eyes have made a glorious musical return with their first album since 2013's Ursus. With Where We Go, the band has reached one of their highest points musically as its songs pack a heavy emotional punch, supported by an elevated production. They've really come into their own with this one, which is why their album/vinyl release show at Mississippi Studios tomorrow is more than worth attending. 

Their live set is captivating, and with Fauna Shade and Sama Dams, there will be much to enjoy. Tickets are $5 and music starts at 9pm so show up on time! Below is the first track to come off Where We Go, titled "Mushroom Hunter."


Mattress is back with a new track, "Fuck the Future"

 Mattress' low, loungey tones have been a favorite around town since he started a few years ago. Mixing the Vegas appeal of Tom Jones in a nightclub with the sensually deep vocality of Nick Cave and a bit of Jamie Stewart's eccentricity, Rex Marshall has filled a niche we didn't even know was empty. 

Yesterday, he released a new, somewhat nihilistic track called "Fuck the Future." It's sentimentally exactly how it sounds - a catchy diddy that's more about living in the moment than worry about all the crap that's coming later. 

His track release show is tomorrow at the Liquor Store with Roselit Bone and Jenny Don't & the Spurs (who are also releasing a split that night!), and his new album (recorded in Isaac Brock's studio) is due out this summer on Brock's label, Glacial Pace Recordings

Listen to the track below and be sure to get to the Liquor Store on time since Mattress opens up the night's bill.


Get your low key dance on at the Liquor Store tomorrow

Combine the resonating sounds of Mamai with the soul tinged dream pop of Ellis Pink and 80's-esque electronica stylings of Fringe Class and you've got the makings for a chill night of swaying. It'll be the funkiest thing to do on a Tuesday and for $6, definitely not a bad way to take in an evolving music scene in the city. Be at the Liquor Store at 9pm so you don't miss any part of this 21+ show.


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. The comp, which has featured upwards of 40 Portland artists (both on and off the festival's bill) for quite a few years now, has presented the city's varied music scene with artists of all different genres. 

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.
