CE, Krychek, and Kala & the Lost Tribe to play National Sawdust's "THE REVOLUTION VOL. 11" on 1/21

Now in its 11th edition, "THE REVOLUTION" concert series at National Sawdust has consistently held it down by featuring talent both top-notch and under the national radar, but always local. Which is the reason why this ver blog decided to partner with them! This month's cream of the crop features CE of Quincy Vidal spitting and singing his solo stuff, Krychek's bizzare electropop and the loungy hip-hop of Kala and the Lost Tribe

CE (pronounced "See," pictured) is 1/2 of NY indie-rap stalwart Quincy Vidal, also an established emcee/producer. His solo recordings feature sedated instrumentals and potent lyrics that are mostly rapped but often sung as well. Krychek, the only non hip hop artist on the bill, will break the funky grooves with music that sounds like a surprisingly functional marriage between Nine Inche Nails and Tears for Fears. Their punky, spacy electropop is at times unstable, at others tranquil but always transfixing.  Kala and The Lost Tribe serve the classic, never cliché, combo of poignant, clever rapping over jazzy, keys-driven backing tracks. Check out their recent single/video 'Chill" streaming below.

You can catch these NYC artists live at The National Sawdust on 1/21 - and copies of The Deli will be there! —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

New Track: "All In" (Feat. Cynthia G. Mason) - Sun Airway

Before 2016 ended, we were delighted by the news of Sun Airway's return after a four-year hiatus with his single "FOAM". And now, just barely into 2017, we are treated once again to the second sampling from his forthcoming LP, Heraldic Black Cherry, called "All In". The vibrant calm of Sun Airway's latest track also features backing vocals by Philly singer-songwriter Cynthia G. Mason.

Peace Out to Pony Village

For damn near a decade, Pony Village have become one of the more household names in Portland, despite being named after a mall in North Bend. Lead singer and guitarist Ryan Barber has transposed his memories of growing up in the coastal southern Oregon town into the indie pop songwriting that's gained Pony Village such a cult following. Sadly, fans won't be getting much more from the band since tonight, Pony Village is being laid to rest.

Exactly why their Rontoms Sunday Sessions set tonight will be their last performance ever, we're not sure. We were always able to count on Pony Village, no matter how many lineup changes or other random occurrences popped up. Needless to say, whether they play more shows, make more albums or not, they'll always be a Portland favorite.

Weather permitting, you can catch Pony Village's last show later this evening at Rontoms with Ali Muhareb. As always with their Sunday Sessions events, it's free.

Satellite Mode unveils new single + plays Irving Plaza tonight (01.06)

We gave NYC's indie pop duo Satellite Mode a "Buzz Alert" back in November (yo, when we say it, we mean it!), and we are glad today to find out they are playing Irving Plaza... tonight! These guys just released a new single, entitled 'Warm Fire Lightning' (streaming below) that confirms their talent what good we had to say about them a couple of months ago. This is quality pop that feels timeless. If you move fast, you might still be able to grab a ticket for tonight's show, they are opening for Great Good Fine OK. If not, well... enjoy the new single!

Weekend Warrior, January 6 - 8

The Orange Drop commemorate their latest album Stoned In Love, available via Mega Dodo, with a release show this evening at Bourbon & Branch. Sifting invitingly through vaporized warmth, the band circumvents one’s mind from cold exterior, shifting the focus onto a heady, melodic atmosphere. However, that cerebral journey goes beyond the pillowy marshmallow drifts, traversing treacherous heart-palpitating terrain amid the ethereal experience. Tonight, they’ll be joined by the consuming, thunderous thumping, heavy-psych module of Meddlesome Meddlesome Meddlesome Bells. The gloomy, resonating, sonic aftermath of Lunacy, a.k.a. Nick Kulp (ex-Far-Out Fangtooth, ex-Creepoid), also celebrates his latest release Life We Choose To Follow (Funeral Party Records) while the space-bombarding, reeled-in cruise of Seafrost kicks this show into gear. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
