PowrSlut release single off forthcoming LP, play release show at Out of the Blue on 8/5

Boston band PowerSlut have never played by anyone's rules but their own, and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. The lead single off their second LP "Girl Crush," is as evocative, or even moreso, than the ironic alt-rockers have ever been, telling the story of a girl the singer has a "girl crush" on.  The lyrics are hilarious, espcially the chorus where Linnea Herzog repeats "Girl crush, girl crush, no homo," bringing back a phrase that most people probably asummed had died alongwith other unfortunate high-school sayings. PowerSlut have always demonstrated a real talent in creating music that messes with the listener's expectations and pokes fun at society while still satisfying sonically as well.  PowerSlut are set to release their second album titled The Second Coming on 8/5 alongwith a release party at Out of the Blue Arts Gallery and More. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Beautiful Machines Introduce New Album - Bridges

The San Francisco based band, Beautiful Machines is back with their new album, Bridges.

Bridges takes the band in a new direction, deepening their exploration of live analog/electronic music. The album is purposefully arranged to take the listener on a journey, like cycling through a Tron-grid landscape to launching into a euphoric stratosphere. Thoughtful, dynamic and full of rich powerful choruses, wide lush verses and tangential bridges, this album strikes a chord and "bridges" technology and emotion.

The 2nd of a trilogy and thematically bridging Disconnect : : Reconnect (2014) with its following concept album Singularity (2017), think of Bridges as an inter-dimensional gateway connecting a circuit or a thought.

 PDX Pop Now's 2016 festival weekend is coming to a close and with its posted lineup, it'll be ending on a high note. Youth bands Fossa Club and the Living Skins open up this sunny Sunday, leading into the blowing up and of Blowout.

Cilantro will be offering a more worldly spice, followed up by a lively punked fueled performance from Bobby Peru.

Deli Portland favorites A Volcano, Force Publique and Cat Hoch have slots on the closing day, along with experimental noise act Consumer, who shared his spontaneous sounds on the PDX Pop segment featured on KATU.

Renaissance Coalition breakout artist Maze Koroma will spit some mad flows just before one of Portland's current biggest bands Summer Cannibals closes out this year's fest just before the 10 o' clock hour.

PDX Pop Now Day 2 - What to Expect

Day 2 of PDX Pop Now actually starts at noon, with Friends of Noise and Music in the Schools act The Scribes. Mr. Bones will be repping an early but good spot for Good Cheer Records, and the Tamed West round out a nice early afternoon block of performances before the afternoon starts kicking in.

Andrew Endres Collective is bringing some jazzy vibes to the fest and Wave Action is filling in for Little Star just before 3:30. 

Old Grape God and Speaker Minds are the fest's hip hop flavor for the day leading into punk af Tiny Knives and Love Cop, who have got their self described "hood goth" on lock.

Experimental artist Antecessor will ring the night in with a bit of strangeness, followed by a block of r&b feels from Lola Buzzkill and Fur Coats. Older school Portlanders Wooden Indian Burial Ground are closing out the night on a garagey note.

With just today and tomorrow left, PDX Pop has been off to a great start!
