Johnny Raincloud share new live video for "MH370"

 Back in 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (or MH370/MAS370) mysteriously disappeared while in route to its destination of Beijing, China. The plane, which was carrying 12 crew members and 227 passengers, last made voice contact some 30 minutes after takeoff, and entirely disappeared off radar an hour after that. After a few years of extensive searching only fragments of the wreckage were found earlier this year but ultimately, the search for anything more was suspended just some months ago.

Right before the Malaysia Airlines flight went down, local rocker Mike Stortz was writing some of the first songs for his band Johnny Raincloud. One of those songs coincidentally was of the same name as the flight, and has sat shelved until basically now. "When the search for the plane stopped, I wanted to make this song to be a reminder," says Stortz.

So, Stortz and the rest of Johnny Raincloud decided to record the track and make a live music video for the song at Surburbia Studios down in southeast not for profit, but as a means of keeping the lives lost on the flight in memory. "We've become so insensitive to real-life stories like MH370 but for that brief moment in time I felt connected to the whole world in a way I haven't felt in a long time," says Stortz. "It's just another reason I wanted this song to be a reminder of the brief time of when we did care. I think it's sad it takes the mystery of a missing airplane for the world to come together with love.  I think it should be like that all the time."

Watch Johnny Raincloud play "MH370" in their live video below, or later on tonight at the Twilight Cafe. Seattle bands Tyler Songs and Great Shame will also be playing, along with WorryDoll.

Freakout Standouts: Strawberry Mountain

*photo by Travis Trautt 

Strawberry Mountain has been around the way for awhile, just not necessarily as montaña de la fresa. Formerly known as Basement Surfers, the DIY music and art collective are as large with their sounds as they are with their member count. Having played two sets at Freakout this year attendees were able to enjoy them twice over, but their sounds were entirely perfect for the Conor Byrne and its crowd.

Aside from their all-ages "2nd chance" Filson set Strawberry Mountain packed onto the Conor Byrne's stage as festival goers crowded the walkways of the bar-venue, lining up for Will Call tickets and press check-in. Upon their first notes the heads in the room focused with intrigue on their expansive, experimental psych sounds, much of which came from their early 2017 album Human Music.

With that album and everything prior, Strawberry Mountain are definitely ones we'll keep our eyes on.

New Track: "Again" - Heatmap

Comprised of Eric Freda (Wigwams), Michael Friedrich (Rahim), and Phil Sutton (Rahim, Wigwams), post-punk trio Heatmap recently released its debut EP Pulses, which was recorded by Uniform Recording's Jeff Zeigler. Standout, “Again,” flows with a bass-pulsating thump. And with that pulse identified, devious, yearning vocals and jaggedly measured guitar licks produce a danceable air of mystery.

Goodfight drops new LP, "Florida Room"

Goodfight's Florida Room packs all the sunshine-y goodness you'd imagine for an album with that title. The indie pop group's latest effort is 8 tracks of upbeat tunes that manage to be fun, sweet, and earnest, but never saccharine. Listen to the title track off the new LP streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

Human People become vampires in new video

Human People’s Haley Livingston has a growl to her voice, something a little sinister. In the band’s latest video for new single “Radiator Water” the truth is revealed: she’s a vampire. In less than two and a half minutes she sucks the life out of two of her bandmates, turning them from goth to prep before a final brunchtime faceoff. Following two strong EPs introducing the band, “Radiator Water” marks Human People’s return with a quick cut of spirited garage punk. It’s the first track from the group’s upcoming album, though no title or release date has been announced yet. Check out the video below. – Cameron Carr
