A Deli Premiere: Toebow’s art-pop debut EP “Spirit Mane”

The members of Toebow have been simmering around the city’s music scene for a while now, you might recognize some of them from projects like Zula and BOBBY, but Spirit Mane is the first release to come from the band. The EP’s four tracks are doused in kaleidoscopic arrangements and ethereal sounds, like a dream pop interpretation of the experimental musings of groups like Tortoise, Stereolab, or King Crimson—but the pop in dream pop is important here. While opening track “I’ll Be Gone” leans into jazz-inflicted chord progressions, “Starfucker” delivers heady electro energy, “Belong” swirls in odd-shaped melodies, and the title track closes with a slow-moving cloud of other-worldly effects, the band never shies away from the pop end of the spectrum. Spirit Mane introduces Toebow as a group keen on invention yet willing to bridge the gap between music that is arty and music that is accessible. The EP is out tomorrow, but you can stream it in its entirety below. Catch the band April 7th celebrating the release at Trans-Pecos alongside Balún and Floam. – Cameron Carr

Out From The Shadows Fest accompanied by new Songs From Under the Floorboard compilation

Dave Cantrell knows what's good when it comes to post-punk. As Portland's resident cognoscente of dark sounds, Cantrell has shared his knowledge regarding the peak of the genre's original years, from 1977 to 1983, as well as on present-day synthwave, darkwave and post-punk through his leading source of a radio show, Songs From Under the Floorboard. This weekly space has been turned into a compilation album, and it's coming out right in time to pair with the fourth year of Cantrell's curated festival Out From the Shadows.

Out on a split between local labels Accident Prone and Green Noise Records, the Songs From Under the Floorboard comp highlights just a few of the amazing artists Cantrell has discovered so far from around the globe, including Spain and Germany. The tracks on the compilation are rare and previously unreleased, the proceeds from what hopefully will be the first of many being donated to Planned Parenthood. As far as local representation is concerned, trio Vice Device are the only Portlanders on this volume of the comp, but there are quite a few named on the Out From the Shadows' bill.

Ritual Veil has been blowing up the scene lately and is expected to take the stage, along with the anarco-death rock of Over and the punk wave sounds of Arctic Flowers. Vibrissae's shoegazey synth sounds, some electro-industrial feels from Die Robot and some classic, gritty post-punk from Deathcharge

Out From the Shadows IV starts tomorrow. To purchase tickets and find more information on individual day's sets, view the Facebook event page. Songs From Under the Floorboard Vol. 1 drops on 4.06, but stream the compilation in full below.

Ed Pastorini releases "Strange Lures" LP on 04.14, see the eerily beautiful video "Loss"

Ed Pastorini has been around New York's underground music scene for a minute- the multi-instrumentalist and composer is a member of 101 Crustaceans, who've been a band since the 1980s. Now, Pastorini is back with a new record as a solo artist, called Strange Lures, which is out today. His charming, eerie video for "Loss," a song about just that, is filled with clips of serene landscapes, houses being bulldozed, and ghostly couples dancing. There are also a few brooding images of the artist projected into parts of the video, making for an altogether haunting experience. The release show for the album is set for April 14th at the Owl Parlor in Brooklyn. - Geena Kloeppel

New Pulgas Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Open to Most Things (Bolied Records), the second full-length album by Philadelphia’s Pulgas, a two-piece consisting of Simon Martinez and Zane Shields is a tundra of spectral delight. Its a sonic quest that is as cogent as it is unhinged. The record’s nine tracks contain multitudes, offering its listener new delights upon each return to their world. The compositions are complex yet surprisingly digestible, with dense atmospheres hovering over intricate rhythmic sequences and playful melodic components. - Josh Kelly
