Overlake shares single from sophomore LP, plays release show at Mercury Lounge

Readying their follow-up release to 2014 debut record “Sighs,” Overlake share “Winter Is Why” (streaming below) from sophomore album “Fall” due out May 12th via Bar/None Records. The track emerges via a guitar figure delivered with orchestral sensibility, creating an immediate mood of majestic grandeur.  Forceful power trio drumming and counterpoint descending bass tones further punctuate unexpected rhythmic accents underneath this rising melody. Settling in to calmer patterns, dreamy vocals describe how the “summer sun hangs around” and “windswept cones on the sand” suggest the winter season.  This over five minute long track successfully blends the quieter passages of gazey icons My Bloody Valentine (think “Come In Alone”) with that band's more explosive and pitch-bendy moments. While still finalizing dates for an April tour, the band has scheduled a record release show at Mercury Lounge on May 12th with support from local favorites Dead Stars and Heaven. - Dave Cromwell

New Music Video: "Lost Moon" - Nightlands

Lulling us into a dream-like state, Nightlands, a.k.a. Dave Hartley (of The War on Drugs), takes us down the rabbit hole of his fascination with "Simpsonwave" YouTube videos, which match scenes from The Simpsons with vaporwave tracks. He recruited the genre's originator, Lucien Hughes, to help him with the visuals for his new music video for "Lost Moon," premiering recently over at Interview Magazine. It's the lead single from his forthcoming LP I Can Feel The Night Around Me, which is slated for release on May 5 via Western Vinyl. Hartley also has plans to hit the road in support of his forthcoming album, and will be taking the stage at Johnny Brenda's on Saturday, May 27, with tourmates The Building.

New Music Video: "Baby" - Needle Points

This morning - we wanted to get your week started off right with Needle Points's new video for "Baby," off the band's latest release Feel Young. Model/fan Federica Hermann makes us all want her to be our baby in the vintage-y footage. It has us longing for those carefree, summer nights where you ain't got shit to do but hang, drink beers and wild out to your favorite tunes. We're definitely ready to leave this winter behind already!

Portland Does SXSW: Necklace

In all the ways modern bands call back to classic styles, there seems to be one  group whose elements aren't as directly in use or recognized. Of course, The Beatles can be considered a band influential to everyone, whether direct elements and nods can be heard in an act's songs or not. But one of Portland's newest outfits, Necklace, take it to another level by creating soundscapes that call back to the group that invented fandemonium.

Not much is really known about Necklace, and they seem to like it that way. Little active online presence makes for a mysterious air about the band, leaving current and potential fans with some tweets, a couple of tracks and a series of gawdy but enjoyable pic art to use as profile pictures. Looking past their aesthetic, Necklace produce modern indie based in '60s pop. Their lyrics are driven by sarcasm that slightly offsets the lighthearted feel to their sounds, but somehow the package works as a whole. We're excited to watch them grow into one of the more bigger acts in town.

PREMIERE: Sea Fuzz - "Garuda Dreams"

*photo by Eric Evans

All the little bits of sunshine we've the last couple days have been absolutely amazing, but the newest video and album from our favorite sunny shoegaze/ocean grunge outfit Sea Fuzz makes this Vitamin D daze we're all in even better.

The perfect follow up to 2015's self-titled EP, Sky Gazing is just the record we need going into the warmer months, boasting sounds reminiscent of rocking out to crashing waves while relaxing on the shoreline. Take the first single and video to come from the album, "Garuda Dreams," a gazed out track heavily led by forceful drumming and chaotic cymbal hits as an example. The track's light drenched sound is due in part its mixing, with the Om's drummer Emil Amos contributing to it.

"For this song, I was privileged to seek out the help of one of my favorite musicians of all time, Emil Amos, to help with the mixing and mastering," says Ben Heckler, the soul of Sea Fuzz. He goes on to say: "I gave the track to Amos and he completely transformed it, adding the perfect amounts of lo-fi grittiness to the vocals, guitar and drums. He really understood the aesthetic from the get-go and he knew precisely what the song needed to remain heavy and powerful, yet dreamlike."

Watch the trippy video for "Garuda Dreams" below. Sea Fuzz will be playing some shows locally and in Europe in support of Sky Gazing, out on Spirit Goth. Stream the album on Sea Fuzz's Soundcloud and Bandcamp pages.
