Mood Music: Ellis Pink - "Temperature"

Temperatures have steadily been climbing the last couple of weeks and after celebrating the summer solstice yesterday, we've got to truly prepare for summer to be here. Thankfully, there's a mellow Ellis Pink track to ease our way into it.

Ellis Pink is the kind of duo that know how to get bodies moving, and minds thinking. To only incorporate two members, Ellis Pink create such a packed sound of pop, jazz and electronic. During their live sets, the two only employ three instruments in the production of their sound - keyboards, drums and their voices - to create the magic. It makes for an intriguing set to watch, and locals will be able to enjoy them and more in just a few hours.

The two will be headlining a show tonight at the White Eagle with a bill full of other poppy acts. Former Pacific Northwesteners Eugene Marie will share tracks from their recent electro-pop debut, while Sea Caves will offer some orchestral indie vibes and Courtney Noe teams up with The Heavy Hustle to get everyone moving. Tickets are only $9 at the door and music starts at 8pm. Listen to Ellis Pink's track "Temperature" below.

Nine Pound Shadow play Ivy Room 06.22

Bay Area indie-pop band Nine Pound Shadow, consisting of brothers Breandain and Christopher Langlois, are playing at Ivy Room in Albany, CA on June 22nd, with Young Moon and The Daily Evening. The duo's most recent release, a self-titled EP, is a collection of five harmony-laced pop songs that are simultaneously airy and punchy. The brothers invoke the melancholic folk of James Taylor, The Shins and Sufjan Stevens on songs like "Bright Like Gold" and "Tiger Smile," as well as the grandiose orchestral pop of MGMT on "Tell Me Why." Check out the official video for "Tell Me Why" below, and be sure to get to the gig! - Ethan Ames

Pecas bring mellow psychedelia to Mercury Lounge on 06.30

Brooklyn indie rock quartet Pecas will be playing Mercury Lounge on June 30th in support of Modern Diet. On their 2014 release, Dwelling, songwriter Sandy Davis paints pictures of the quiet despair and contemplation that occurs in the midst of a relationship's slow decline. Reverb-drenched vocals, warbling keys and tremolo-laced electric guitars lend a fittingly melancholy ambiance. Listen to "Keeper" below! - Ethan Ames

Friend Roulette announces new EP, releases lead single "Joan"

Brooklyn's avant-pop band Friend Roulette has released a lead single, "Joan," ahead of its forthcoming EP, The Matt Sheffer Songbook, Vol. 1. In a departure from the band's previous releases, Songbook is a series of covers originally written a decade ago by a friend of the band, songwriter Matt Sheffer. "Joan" is a strong indication of the band's ability to create something that's greater than the sum of its parts - Friend Roulette's proclivity toward lush textures perfectly compliments Sheffer's Brian Wilson-esque compositional prowess. Listen to the single below, and keep an eye out for The Matt Sheffer Songbook Vol. 1, out June 16th. - Ethan Ames
