Dru Cutler releases "Bring Closer The Distance" LP

Dru Cutler took the stage at Pianos on April 7th to release his newest LP, Bring Closer The Distance. The record marks a shift in lyrical content and production value for Cutler, who debuted in 2016 with the album Familiar. On Bring Closer The Distance, Cutler reaches out through his words to people who shaped him throughout his life, including his father who lives with bipolar disorder and his estranged stepmother. In songs like the thundering "Oceanside", which has hints of U2 and Bob Dylan, Cutler comes to terms with his reality and place in a conflicted world. Speaking of Dylan: Bring Closer The Distance showcases the mastering genius of engineer Dave McNair, who worked with Dylan and David Bowie, as well as mixing engineer Andy Taub, who has worked with Keith Richards and Ani DiFranco. Dru will host a vinyl listening party with intimate acoustic performance at Noho Sound on April 13. Stream single "Oceanside" below. - Will Sisskind

Hollister trio Conserve strip down their sound in "Puzzle Dust" EP

The newest EP, Puzzle Dust, from Hollister-based trio Conserve takes the band in a completely new direction from their debut self-titled album. In their sophomore release, they completely strip down their sound and rely solely on acoustic guitar and vocals—whereas Conserve is heavily punk and garage influenced. This isn’t a surprising move for a band that is determined to escape the confines of genre, and they do it well, bringing a distinctly grunge sensibility to singer-songwriter tracks. Catch their next show at The Colony on April 29th. - Lilly Milman

New Al's Den Residency with Mitch Wilson begins tonight

McMenamins Al's Den has got a knack for picking artists to watch and using their residencies to showcase them. For this week in April, Al's Den is giving us the chance to see a different side of a very talented and familiar face, along with some special guests to play close at hand along the way. Starting tonight, we'll get a whole seven days to enjoy Mitch Wilson and his sundry sounds.

Many probably recognize Wilson from his time spent in indie rock bands around Portland, like the Deli favorite LiquidLight, but he's actually got a surprising amount of work under his belt. What many probably don't know is that on top of being a jazz drummer, he was also one of the founding members of the Taylor Momsen (remember Gossip Girl?) led rock band The Pretty Reckless. Even more than that, he's performed in the Sting-featuring Broadway show 'The Last Ship' and has contributed creatively to the Tony Award nominated Broadway musical 'A Night with Janis Joplin.'

With all of this artistic output behind him, Wilson has opened up the next music chapter of his life to share with us all. He'll be the headlining act each night of course, but joining him tonight will be Quiet Type, tomorrow 4.09 with a variety of local special guests for the On Broadway musical theater night, the jazz super group Trad Jazz on Tuesday 4.10, LiquidLight on Wednesday 4.11, Megan Diana on Thursday, Wil Kinky on Friday, and then ending on Saturday 4.14 with S.O.S., A Tribute to the Police. 

There's too much to miss, so be prepared to find your seat for the whole week at Al's Den.
