Girl Fest is Giving Us Life

A much needed celebration of female power, Girl Fest is back with a showcase of some of Portland's best female musicians of the moment. Hosted by the soulful Blossom, this year's installation of GF touches on a few different genres, including jazz, folk and hip hop, to me enjoyed by all ages.

Coco Columbia has been a local love we've grow to appreciate more and more, with her refreshingly modern and eclectic take on jazz. Her voice, along with her production, have become indicative of the variety of other music scenes the city provides.

Other upbeat offerings come from some of the only female rap artists in Portland's market right now, including Karma Rivera. Taking a beat and fully making it her own, Karma's rhymes give the best of relatable expression and fun quips. Building off of that, duo Neka & Kahlo mix angelic bedroom pop with hip hop that results in a trappy type R&B that we need much more of.

Courtney Noe could easily dominate the pop charts with her retro ballads and after the Fish Eye EP, we've been dying for more of Haley Heynderickx's acoustic folk.

Thankfully Girl Fest 2017 is still happening tonight at the Crystal Ballroom. It's an all ages show, including some performances from young artists involved with local youth music nonprofit My Voice Music, so bring all your loved ones out for a night of true female empowerment.

The Fantastic Plastics talk about gear on Delicious Audio

It's almost impossible to not be immediately smitten with the Fantastic Plastics. With their bright colors and quirky demeanor, the Brooklyn-based duo re-imagines retro-synth pop for the 21st century. While they're sure to delight nostalgia seekers, the band's catchy, fun tracks have a wide appeal that's sure to draw in even the most discerning Brooklynite. The artists were kind enough to talk a little bit about their expansive synth collection, and just what dimension the Fantastic Plastics come from. - Olivia Sisinni

The Undercover Dream Lovers bring their angular synth pop to Our Wicked Lady on 2/4

The Undercover Dream Lovers's cover might just have been blown. The NYC synth-pop band recently sold out Rough Trade, and has been getting attention from a glut of music blogs. I guess it's hard to stay covert when you're busting out catchy dancehall tunes--especially when tracks sound far larger than the bedroom they were recorded in. The solo project of Brooklyn-based Matthew Koenig, The Undercover Dream Lovers delivers synth-heavy hooks, angular instrumentals and soft, understated vocals that together have the kind of magic that will instantly draw you in. Catch him at Our Wicked Lady 2/4 with Saint Marilyn and Violent Sands, but in the meantime, stream his latest single below. - Olivia Sisinni

BASECAMP Creates Atmospheric Electronica

BASECAMP offers an electronica that incorporates elements of chillwave, house, club music, and hip hop. Though often uptempo, it retains that jazzy subdued melody and structure you might find in a Flying Lotus track. Imagine Thundercat cut a record and had a young James Blake croon over it, and you understand the magic of BASECAMP. The production is crisp and clear, lacking the abrasive trappy sub bass that so often taints today's electronica. The arrangments are complex enough to satisfy the music nerd, but not too esoteric so please the dancers and ravers. This group has something to offer everyone, so be sure to catch the their show or order their latest album, In Stone here
