New Track: "Congratulations" (Post Malone Cover) - Shelf Life

Shelf Life, a.k.a. Scott Leitch, recently put his own spin on Post Malone’s "Congratulations". Draped in a lo-fi aesthetic, the take dials things back a bit while retaining a residual sense of positivity. You can catch Shelf Life performing next in Philly at All Night Diner on Friday, February 10 with Microsoft Saint, Brittle Brian, and Chef Kiss.

New Track: "CainamaniaC" - Spirits

“CainamaniaC,” the latest from Spirits, glides on a silky silhouette of synth. A mystical-sounding flute initiates the journey; vocal harmonies close the emotional distance as the song stretches forward. Press play, and wander along with Spirits.

Water Slice play The Hi Hat on 2/1

With so many tremendous changes occurring in our country this past month, it’s nice to step back and appreciate the little things that make us happy. And this month, I’m pleased to say that Water Slice has been that ray of sunshine we’ve been looking for. Their newest single, “Our Hearts Don’t”, tells a story of true love, with artistic and righteous guitar strums soaking up the 70’s vibe. Emotional lyrics paint a nostalgic picture for those ever involved in heartbreak and what it means to lose yourself in order to find it again.

Keep an eye out for Water Slice, performing along side AAN at The Hi Hat on February 1st. - Kayla Hay

Portland's Best New Indie Pop Acts to Enjoy this Year

Last year was a pretty good year in local music. We've seen many faces tackle few genres, battling it out for the top spot in all our rotation of shows we attend, merch we buy and band pages we like. Of all the Portlander crusaders in Indie Pop, Reptaliens won the yearly reader's poll for the category, but there are a handful of other bands that caught the eye of our jurors and voters. 

At the top of that list is Little Star (pictured), the Good Cheer Records band that pulls the best from 90's college radio indie and emo, giving a modern spin to the classics of sad pop. Spawned from the ashes of a romanticized detriment, as are some of the best contributions to music ever, Little Star's small but estimable discography models moments of tender affection and soft aggression sonically and lyrically as a well rounded product to share with the masses. 

---

Next up we've got Mini Blinds, whose angelic twee pop quickly made them a favorite. Just in their first year of existence, their debut release Air Signs captures an innocence many long to hold on to.

---

Newer to the Portland scene, synthpop duo My Body hauled their danceable beats across the country from New York to share their creations with us. We couldn't be more happy about it, or their Seven Wives EP, released yesterday.

---

With one of the best guitarists in the city right now, Two Moons is an enigma of sorts. Their albums reflect a temperate delivery, but their live shows are a brute force to be reckoned with. They'll surprise you in all sorts of ways, but all of them pleasantly.

---

We've can't forget to show some love to our Honorable Mentions Small Million, Plastic Cactus and Point Juncture, Wa as well!
