New Pill Friends Compilation Available for Streaming & Purchase

100% of the proceeds from Pill Friends' new compilation, Let’s Be Nice – B-sides, Covers & Demos (Out of Breath Records), will go to a trust for Ryan Wilson’s daughter, Laurel. Weaving a communicable blend of lo-fi fragility and enthusiasm, this collection continues to exhibit bedroom-door-ajar, personal narratives. Drenched in vocal sensitivity and sparse, into-the-void instrumental accompaniment, the songs take hold. Orchestrating an inherent sadness with cathartic ends, one is reminded of Wilson's brilliant vulnerability.

New Quiet Slang EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Stripped-down strings and piano instrumentation cast cathedral-style closeness on the recently issued EP, We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags (Polyvinyl Records), from Beach Slang's James Alex, under the moniker Quiet Slang. Coupling a pair of originals, "Future Mixtape For the Art Kids" and "Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas," with a tandem of covers in The Replacements' "Androgynous" and Big Star's “Thirteen,” Alex temporarily trades his unabashed fury for a more subdued, still-spirited sound. Shifting one’s perspective and expectations, this Quiet Slang scenario appears to be the start of something rather than merely a standalone. Currently on the road as part of an extensive touring schedule, Beach Slang will be back in town on Saturday, December 2 at the TLA, supported by Dave Hause & The Mermaid and The Homeless Gospel Choir.

Prolly Knot brings poppy R&B to Portland

It's always fun to discover new ways in which genres can be mixed and mingled, and that's definitely something Sam Pinkerton has tasked herself with doing. Under the moniker Prolly Knot, Pinkerton recently dropped her candid debut album It's Not Anymore, and it's rife with tracks that will make you feel just as emotionally vulnerable.

The album seems as if to be a series of confessionals from Pinkerton, stirred up by the process of self reflection and moving across the country from her native Nashville home. It's Not Anymore is earnest in its sounds, blending dark pop, R&B and notes of hip-hop to create an accessible, almost brooding bedroom feel that's warmly intimate.

Check out It's Not Anymore below, and be on the lookout for more from Prolly Knot. - Photo credit: Colette Pomerleau

Weekend Warrior, October 20 - 22

Play The Songs You Like, the new full-length album from Radiator Hospital, officially comes out today via Salinas Records. In a corresponding move, the band will headline a release show this evening at First Unitarian Church. There’s a fuzzy familiarity in these songs - a bouncy enthusiasm that one can latch on to. Lyrically, one finds him/herself paging through a photo album as those sharp but ever-fading memories push back up to the surface. Even the sad points gain a luminous glow, the more time passes. The quartet continuously finds a way to tap into and trigger the communality of personal experiences, with a delicate, united, melodic touch. Tonight, they’ll be joined by the tender-rocking Baltimore trio of Outer Spaces, and capturing a kindred-comforting warmth, Emi Night-led Strawberry Runners, whose new EP In the Garden, In the Night is also now available courtesy of Salinas Records, reinforces the billing.  With a new EP on the way, local trio Eight will kick off the festivities. – Michael Colavita

New The Trust Fund Kids EP Available for Streaming & Download

As he builds toward a debut LP, Kevin Connor, a.k.a. The Trust Fund Kids, recently issued a fresh EP The Sky Looks Like A Videogame. Creating a musical compound of upbeat jangle with underlying ghostly synth/keys, these songs pleasantly haunt. Nightmarish tales of isolation gather steam, as the light fixtures in a narrative tunnel are gradually brought to full power. There’s a vibrancy that persists through the dim times.
