Janelle Kroll releases soulful debut EP 'Outsider'

Janelle Kroll dipped her pen in the wells of a few differnet genres for her new EP Outsider. On the project she mixes elements from synthpop, R&B and neosoul, that, when combined with her noteworthy vocal abilities, form a project that's at once intense and intriguing. We are streaming below second single '24 hrs.' Check out also the EP's closer "Looose," a duet with morgxn featuring a stripped down beat, consisting of just a distorted synth pattern and sleigh bells at first, that allows the pair's vocals and striking lyrics to take center stage. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber, photo by Ennis Chung

Lara Downes Set to Release America Again Inspired by the Langston Hughes Poem

San Francisco based pianist, Lara Downes will release her next solo album, America Again on October 28, 2016. The album’s title is taken from Langston Hughes’ poem, Let America Be America Again, written in 1938.

Downes’ 2016 album, America Again, explores music that expresses different facets of the American dream – its hope, its impossibility, and its necessity. Lara Downes conceived of the album in June 2015, in response to the Charleston, SC shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. She recorded the album in March 2016 at Sono Luminus’ studio in Boyce, VA. Downes writes of the meaning in the album, “Today, as I write these words, we are living again in troubled times. For too many Americans, circumstance and skin color still keep the promise out of reach, the dream deferred. The hard-won rights and long-sought justice for which our parents and grandparents fought are too easily slipping away. The rifts and rivalries that divide us as a nation seem to run deeper than ever. But still, we dreamers keep dreaming our dream. This music is a tribute to the generations of Americans who dream the impossible: black and white, men and women, immigrants and pioneers. It tells the story of their journeys, their loves and longings, their hardships and their hopes. American music is made of everything we are, coming from so many different people and places, expressing so many different dreams

Arbor Daze makes the sounds of the season

 It's been quite nice moderately transitioning from devil's dick level heat to the gloomy frigid weather Portland is typically known for. While there's many a sad album signifying our respective feelings on this transition, none really does more justice than Arbor Daze's ambient despondence.

Our eyes have been on Aspen Koch's solo project since she tied on one of our Artist of the Month polls a little while back. She's been quite busy since then putting the finishing touches on last month's release, Four Months. Her work as Arbor Daze is fairly minimalistic in instruments wielded yet maximal in its impact on the listener - using just a guitar, a loop pedal and her voice to sonically capture the brood - though she collaborated  with others on Four Months.

Thankfully we're not the only ones to take notice of Koch's efforts (and Sarah Lane's of the Late Great, for that matter!), as there's a show tomorrow displaying a bit of appreciation. 

It's just about the time for the Jade Lounge's October #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday, just in case you somehow didn't know) Showcase and Arbor Daze, along with Sarah Lane, Jen Deale of Santiam and soulful jazz guitarist Angelica Pray will be performing. Come experience the haze of Arbor Daze in person tomorrow as you fall for the other lovely ladies as well!
