NEW TRACK: Genders - "Life is But a Dream"

A recent tug at the heart strings led Maggie Morris to write Genders newest sarcastically lovelorn track "Life is But a Dream," which premiered yesterday over at AllMusic. It shows Genders at their usual best, luring you in with incredibly relatable lyrical themes and charismatic song structure.

"Life is But a Dream" is officially releasing this Friday, with their single release show this Saturday at Bunk Bar with Divers and Times Infinity. The track peaks at their new Phone Home EP, due out soon. Listen to the track below.

Divers do Dead Moon on new 7"

Indie punks Divers have been riding high since the release of their debut LP, Hello Hello, last year. The LP saw great praise from numberous outlets and come April 19th, we'll officially have another reason to praise them even more. Dirt Cult is releasing Divers' new two song 7". Side A is the rockin' track "Achin' On," but it's Side B we're focusing on right now. The B side features a well executed cover of Dead Moon's "Can't Do That." Vocalist Harrison Rapp perfectly emulates Fred Cole's croon, while still maintaining originality. Creepily enough, the tracks were internet-launched on the same day former Dead Moon-er Andrew Loomis passed away. 

Check out Divers' take on "Can't Do That" below. For comparison, the original Dead Moon track can also be found below. Rest in Peace, Andrew.

Get up and Get Outta Town!

The first of its kind (well, maybe not in the whole world, but here in Oregon at least), the Get Outta Town series is in its infancy, with it's first edition to take place on January 30th. The premise of the Get Outta Town series is to encourage local music lovers to venture away from Portland's usual venues and see a different part of the state. It's an amazing idea, and Get Outta Town #1 will be held at Coyote Woods in Estacada, Oregon. Playing the inaugural bill will be Divers, Woolen Men, Ah God and Abronia, for tickets on a sliding price scale of $5-$10. Proceeds will partially go to the bands and partially go to coverage of any damage that happens to the property.

Just in case you drive down there and get a little too fucked up for the drive back to town, the Get Outta Town launchers are in talks with the local and independent Red Fox Motel for a potential discount for attendees, so stay tuned!

Divers Release 'Hello Hello'

Divers stand out. It’s irrelevant to define their sound by one or two genres. Harrison Rapp, Seth Rapp, James Deegan and Colby Hulsey have already claimed a description: “sweaty dynamic”. The four-piece release their debut LP, Hello Hello, via Party Damage and Rumbletowne Records on February 17th. 

The quartet take calculated rises and falls through their sound, effectively bringing you up through energetic songs and mellowing you out with songs like “Great Escape”. The balance is something to remember. This Sunday, 2.15, Divers will perform at the High Water Mark Lounge for their hometown release show, which will also serve as a benefit fundraiser for harm reduction in Portland. Pageripper (also releasing an album), Marriage and Cancer, and Thin Coat are supporting. 8pm, $5.

Stream the album in it's entirety now in advance.

Lux Perpetua Opening for Divers at Boot & Saddle Dec. 4

Divers are headlining Boot & Saddle this evening before they release the debut album that they've been pushing on Pledge Music. And it will be a solid home performance for South Philly natives Lux Perpetua, who have been marching to the beat of a new drum since the release of Hehbehdehbehbehdeh over the summer. The album that was named for a sound he made while yawning is a bold & beautiful result of a half-decades worth of material that former Extraordinaires member Justin Long had created under the new project. And the addition of Matt Gibson (The Extrordinaires, ex-Man Man)) and Spencer Carrow has elevated the project into a full-fledged power trio that has impressed during live performances. Although the majority of its members call Brooklyn home now, Philadelphia is the second home to Cuddle Magic, where a couple of its members still reside. With what the vibrant indie orchestral folk sextet has been recording in the studio since September, it’s likely that we'll be seeing more of them in 2015. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill
