A.M. Mills Grapples With Heartache at Ortlieb's Nov. 30

After originally learning about a full-length album being in the works with the help of Terry Yerves and Quentin Stoltzfus (Light Heat, ex-Mazarin) about a year ago, A.M. Mills, led by Drew Mills of Blood Feathers, has finally shared not an LP, as expected, but a six-song EP, simply titled First Recordings. Its introspective narrative finds Mills wandering over Dylan-esque musical terrain as he grapples with heartache and the ghost of a lost love. It's a cathartic release, and A.M. Mills will be sorting through this collection of songs/feelings and more this evening at Ortlieb's. They'll also be be joined by August Wells, the collaborative project from Ken Griffin (Rollerskate Skinny, Kid Silver, Favourite Sons) and John Rauchenberger, and local Philebrity singer-songwriter Joey Sweeney. Ortlieb's, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

Stand Up for Standing Rock

Though Thanksgiving has traditionally stood a holiday where we give thanks to the harvest, for many its original meaning is lost. Anyone with a smart phone or an internet connection has been privy to what mass media is attempting to mask so greatly - the tragedy of the North Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

Without getting into tearful details of this travesty (and appreciating the veterans who are stepping up to serve as a human shield to the protestors), the Deli Portland is fully endorsing attending a benefit show for the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council, happening this Friday at the Haight House

Half the halcyon calmness of folk and half the excitable nature of garage rock, Friday's bill, booked in conjunction with local volunteer collective Portland Artist Coalition for Progressive Acts and Causes, will have the droney folk of Cave Cricket and the soothing acoustics of Galen Ballinger with two of Portland's most favorite rockin' af bands Dim Wit and Ah God bringing it home.

A donation of $5 is asked, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. All that's asked is the audience respect the house, respect each other, and respect the cause.

HIDEOUT announces sophomore LP + plays Baby's All Right on 11.30

Following the 2014 debut album ‘Rookie’, HIDEOUT (the solo project Gabriel Rodriguez, a live guitarist for Cults) is preparing to release his sophomore full length 'So Many Hoops/So Little Time’ in early 2017. “Doctor”, the first single off the record, initially draws attention with a cheerful electric guitar intro reminiscent of the more jangly bands from the psychedelic revival of the late '80s. A jumpy piano keeps the mood up, although the song's lyrics seem to  tap into the negative facets of our psychological processes. Ranging sonically and lyrically from whimsical space-pop to nostalgic singer-songwriter tracks, the album's essence is fused with the recent passing of Rodriguez’s brother. Listen to “Doctor” below and catch the band live at Baby's All Right on November 30th at Pavo Pavo's record release show. - Ashley Muniz

Thirdstory releases new single 'G Train", plays Baby's All Right on 12/18

This could be the first and last time you read about NYC band Thirdstory on the pages of The Deli. It's not like we have anything against the talented soul-folk band, rather, it's that too many people are beginning to jam with their catchy, rugged sound. The latest of their newer legion of fans appears to be none other than critically-acclaimed emcee Pusha T. On the highlight of the trio's recently released Searching EP, "G Train," they pair up with Pusha to deliver a hard-hitting track that embodies the gritty, resilent nature of New York and New Yorkers. Though T is from Virginia, he feels right at home on a song about the underside of The Big Apple. Thirdstory are on a world tour right now, but you can catch them back at home on 12/18 at Baby's All Right. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber 

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Sunday Sounds: Sallie Ford - "Get Out"

One of the city's biggest pride and joys, Sallie Ford, has been relatively low key following her split with the Sound Outside and the release of 2014's Slap Back. Over these last couple of years we knew deep down Ford wasn't laying her musical abilities to rest and this month, along with the release of a new single, she announced more new material coming our way through an upcoming album.

February will see the deliverance of Soul Sick, an album of emotive reflection featuring a slew of talented Portlanders that helped bring it to life. Ford found herself at Type Foundry Studio where she solicited the help of Mike Coykendall along with his brother John, Kirk Hamilton, Garth Klippert of Old Light, Ben Nugen of Dolorean, Kris Doty of Modern Kin and helping hand to Tom Waits and the B-52's Ralph Carney in bringing instrumental talent and production smarts to the process. 

On what Soul Sick is all about, Ford said:

This is a confessional album about struggling with my issues — some that I’ve overcome and some that I still carry around. This is an album about insecurity, anxiety and depression; it’s an album about band breakups, major life changes, and what it took to deal with those things. Growing up, I was a middle child and a homeschooler, so I’ve always felt like an outsider. In making this record, I explored what my music means to me, and how I’ve always struggled with feeling the pressure of not being good enough and wanting to quit. On these new songs, it felt good to write on one theme and from one place. All in all, Soul Sick has taught me a lot about myself and helped me to heal.

Soul Sick will be out via Vanguard Records on February 10. Give the first track from the album, "Get Out," a listen below.
