Matthew Fountain & the Whereabouts' "Written on Your Wall" Makes You Reflect on All Your Conversations

From shredding in Mississippi metal bands as a teen to a West Coast move resulting in a new sound, Matthew Fountain has taken the familial jazzy influence of his upbringing and turned it into the artsy folk pop us Portlanders get to experience today.

With anywhere from three to eight of his musician friends joining him live as part of the Whereabouts, Matthew Fountain's tunes lyrically reflect the familiar struggle we all have with reflecting on self-identity, social interactions, the future, love and other strong forces we experience. Some of these themes can be heard on his newest track, "Written on Your Wall," that came out just over a week ago.

Through moody chamber folk and a somewhat theatrical production, "Written on Your Wall" touches on the all too common human tendency of hearing what we want to out of conversations and other people's words. Its syncopated arrangements and interesting key changes keep the listener attentive while engaging in its relatable storyline. Give it a listen below

Joel Gion Release New Single - Tomorrow

San Francisco based musician, Joel Gion has released a new single entitled, Tomorrow. This new neo psych pop track is a great new addition to his music catalog and rock and roll lineage. We love this song's rebellious and super cool attitude where Joel sings:

"Don't need a high place in a lowdown world
I'll keep moving on
Where I can be myself and here's something else
I'm doing nothing wrong
Seems everything is brought to extremes
Just to keep people runnin around..."

Tomorrow was written by Gion where he performed vocal, rhythm guitars, maracas and tambourine. The was produced and mixed by Collin Hegna at Revolver Studios in Portland, OR. Hegna also played bass on this track. Paul Dillon played guitars and Brian Gardner performed on drums.

It’s always a pleasure to hear new music from a San Francisco icon! Take a listen and support independent artists!

New Music Video: "Seven Days" - The Dove & The Wolf and Sign to Fat Possum

We had already guessed that The Dove & The Wolf had been signed to a record label when we first discovered that their 2016 EP I Don't Know What To Feel had been taken down from their Bandcamp page this past fall. The duo of Paloma Gil and Lou Hayat just premiered a new music video for the single, "Seven Days," yesterday via NPR, and they also shared that I Don't Know What To Feel will be reissued on March 24 by Fat Possum with two additional tracks. Congrats, ladies! (Photo by CJ Harvey)

Hollie Hammel releases debut EP

Don't Wake Me Up is a body of work that both stimulates and soothes a musically curious mind. The songs are at once disarming and complex, blending a smooth, soulful voice with complex chord changes and playful, dancing melodies that skip lightly across the instrumentation of members of Nashville's more seasoned neo jazz/funk/R&B/soul outfit, Dynamo. Hammel's vocal talent is undeniable, with striking similarities to the vocal timbre of early St. Vincent records like Marry Me but with rounder edges that bring Nora Jones to mind. The overall complexity and combination of jazz, funk, and soul elements come together in these songs to form a masterful and cohesive piece that just makes sense to any appreciative listener. - Andrew Strader

Bryson Cone's "Desire" Leaves Us Desiring His Debut

It's likely you've heard the smooth croon of Bryson Cone before. Be it as the frontman of Fog Father, an appearing face in Reptaliens or belting out all the slick R&B jams at your local karaoke spot, Bryson Cone has got a voice rich like butter and a knack for catchily hitting some keys. If his other projects weren't proof enough, his first few solo singles sure are, especially the one coming off of his upcoming debut.

"Desire," which officially came out a few days ago, is a lush art-pop diddy with intriguing effects and a lyrical story centered around unrequited proclivity and the search for a resolution. The song digs deeper than its colorful tunage let's off, layering airy synths with meaningful elements. 

Expect Bryson Cone's debut album sometime this Spring.
