Wilder Maker unveils groovy summer jam, "New Streets" + plays Rough Trade on 05.06

From the electric guitar hook to the soft, confident, sultry vocals, it is clear that Brooklyn's Wilder Maker has mastered the art of caressing the ear in "New Streets." I am not hesitant to call this one of my favorite new songs- the affectionate, breathy saxophone and the breakout drums exude freshness, turning this song into a real jam. Gabriel Birnbaum has mastered the art of the chill-yet-groovy indie anthem and Katie Von Schleicher's vocals exert peak girl-power and a refined boldness. "New Streets" is on repeat on my playlist, and it should be on yours, too. Catch the band live at Rough Trade on May 6th. - Geena Kloeppel

 

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

30 Best Places for Music in PDX? Let's see!

 Clickit Ticket, a ticket resale marketplace that specializes in helping customers find sold out or otherwise hard to get tickets, has taken the time to compile a list of the 30 best places to catch live music in Portland. For locals, some of the names on the list aren't surprising. Places like Mississippi Studios and Holocene are essentially household names and recurring weekend haunts at this point.

Where the gets interesting is with its featuring of certain less popular-to-the-masses spots. They're not all by any means venues but certain diamonds in the rough, like Spinella's Off the Wall or Andina Restaurant, where patrons can catch more varied arrays of music.

Part list for newscomers and tourists, part reminder of places that haven't closed down yet for locals, Clickit Ticket's list is fairly well rounded. Look at it in full and see all the ones you've been to HERE.

Mt. Joy look ahead on new single "Cardinal"

The story of Mt. Joy can be found on their new single "Cardinal". It's a song about moving forward regardless of an imminent seperation, a message that goes in agreement with how the indie folk duo regrouped after taking other career paths. Having moved forward with the project must've did them well. A calm whistle prettifies the song's stready acoustic strum, until it takes charge in its final stretch with a chorus that's downright life-affirming.

Mt. Joy are making a few festival stops before going on a tour that takes them all over the East Coast. "Cardinal" is out now on all streaming platforms.

Val Bauer returns with first show of the season

Val Bauer makes the type of tunes that take us back to the good ol' days.

His style of songwriting is fully expressive and filled with emotion, calling back to a sonic execution like that of alt-Americana Ryan Adams and OG emo kids Saves the Day. His nostaligia rock even includes elements of pop punk, as heard on his most recent EP Malaise. Since Bauer's songs are heavily rife with strong feelings, it's just the kind of sound we need to ease us through this painfully slow change in weather.

See Val Bauer performing songs off Malaise and more tonight at the Firkin Tavern with Fire Nuns and Black Fruit. The show starts at 7pm, for free!

New Caffeine Machine LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

After an extended absence, Quinn Arlington Waters, a.k.a. Caffeine Machine, has returned with a new album, The Grey Man. Densely layered orchestration cuts through with sticky, hazy grooves akin to MMJ. Utilizing gear-shift tendencies whether ramping up or simmering to a sway, the album heads in unpredictable directions, but remains cohesively on course. Listen as the plot twists.
