Join the Secret Sea in celebrating "Army Of Souls" and his upcoming tour

A couple months ago, the Secret Sea dominated and won a round of the Deli Portland's Artist of the Month poll. We're now pleased to share the Secret Sea's newest single "Army Of Souls" and the release show in support of it, which happens to be kicking off his month long foray along the West Coast and beyond.

Relocating to Portland from Tel Aviv, Amit Erez, the Secret Sea's main vein, throws himself deeply into his songwriting with an uninhibited beatific expression. Each track finds the listener more closely connecting with Erez as an artist on an emotional level and "Army Of Souls" is no different.

First premiering on Next Northwest this last Thursday, "Army Of Souls" is yet another song showcasing Erez's ability to delicately tug at your internal strings with an Elliot Smith-ian sort of mastery. 

A single release show for "Army Of Souls" will be TONIGHT at the Turn! Turn! Turn! along with two Boston artists, Annabelle Lord-Patey and Matt Minigell, and fellow Portland solo artist GLASYS, who also provided keyboards on the Secret Sea's track.

Peep the Secret Sea's tour dates while you listen to "Army Of Souls" below.

A Deli Premiere: "Jumpstart" by Saint Adeline

The words "close-knit" are definitely appropriate when referred to NYC rootsy pop band Saint Adeline, since the it's comprised of three sibilings: Drew, Kasie and Chloe Gasparini. After trying separate artistic careers, the trio almost accidentally found themselves on a stage performing together, only to realize what kind of rare chemistry existed between them. Since then, they've been working on material for a debut record, and what we are premiering here is the band's first single, entitled Jumpstart. Written by Drew, this is a song about reclaiming control of one's life narrative after a negative (sentimental) experience. Chloe's bright and optimistic soprano fits the theme perfectly, while the acoustic arrangement and well orchestrated vocal harmonies convey an uplifting and hopeful sonic carpet.

Hitch a Ride w/The Captain The Pilot The Driver at MilkBoy Aug. 5

Whether it’s soulfully simple, folk sounds or a boozier southern-inflected rock, Paul Hocynec-led The Captain The Pilot The Driver invites one to hitch a ride. Tonight, the band steers into Milkboy, where they’ll showcase songwriting that contextualizes the ongoing sojourn, rolling through bumps with eyes focused on the final destination, while you’re temporarily passengers consuming those earnest-exposed stories. This evening will also feature the layered experimental electro-R&B of Paris Monster and Blame Candy to solidify this billing. Milkboy, 1100 Chestnut St., 8:30pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers Releases New Track - Favorite Food

Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers is a collaborative project created by Oakland based musician, Benji Marx.

The music of Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers focuses on the cycles of gain and loss, happiness and sadness that flow through our lives. The songs were written after the loss of a relationship and a reevaluation of what it means to lead a fulfilling life. I realized that we all have a circle of responsibility and we choose how far we want to extend it. How far can we push this boundary? Can we include each other? This project is a totem to remind me and hopefully others of the circles we draw, and to maintain the mindset that we are all mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers.

"Favorite Food was written with the taste of a lover still in my mouth, her smell still in my nostrils, and a lingering question of where she had gone." - Benji Marx

Americana rock 'n' rollers A Valley Son play Union Hall on 8/13

One of the most powerful assets of art is its ability to transform negative or sad experiences into positive emotions.  A Valley Son does just that in their new, moody Americana and folk rock infused single, “Dark Places,” which tells the story of a mysterious old man full of dark tales - and of his undignified, lonely death ("They found him in his bathroom's floor..."). The song keeps the band’s promise of “encompassing the dark, poetic lyricism of Bruce Springsteen,” yet they do so with accents that are more Southern and twangy than the ones adopted by The Boss. You can catch A Valley Son at Union Hall on August 13th. - Madeleine Grossman
