Mixtape | February 2017

February is always a fantastic month for new music. With SXSW right around the corner, it’s a huge driver for new music and this year was another great one. Now that February is over and we are two months down into this year, it’s time once again to get our monthly mixtape into your hands. We’re psyched to hear new songs from Blondie (yes that Blondie), Andrew Combs, Matt Vazquez, the Shins, Foxygen, Father John Misty and tons more. I’ve had a ton of fun putting this together, and hope you enjoy.

Look for Law and Order in September.…

On the other hand, the surplus of vintage clothes, furniture, and retro-themed music events suggest that we have an even stronger allegiance with the 60’s and 70’s. Regardless of decade, a prominent selection of Portlanders are indisputable masters of aesthetic preservation, making it no surprise when throwback bands like Foxygen find their shows sold out and well-attended. The opening…

New Music | Foxygen – Make it Known

Foxygen – Make It Known This has to be one of the most interesting sounding tracks I’ve heard in a while.  Its a classic rock influenced track that keeps sounding a bit like Neil Diamond’s Girl, You’ll Be a Woman, crossed with a bit of psychedelia, and an unorthodox song structure.  It’s a very impressionistic sound that comes from different times, and places, very strange, yet still extremely engaging, and nice to listen to. The band, consisting of Sam France and Jonathan Rado, was just signed to Jagjaguwar and will be releasing a 7 track LP, Take the Kids Off Broadway…
