Bells Atlas Shares New Single - N C A T

The Oakland based band, Bells Atlas has released a new single entitled, N C A T!

With a full length and two EPs released since forming in late 2012, Oakland-based pop-soul band Bells Atlas are gearing up to drop a new standalone single, “NCAT.” The track release comes timed with the Bells Atlas’ upcoming run of dates with the WNYC/NPR program Snap Judgment serving as the house band during live recordings.

Attempting to neatly describe the sounds that Derek Barber (guitar) Geneva Harrison (drums, percussion, keys) Sandra Lawson-Ndu (vocals, percussion, keys) and Doug Stuart (bass, vocals, keys) produce together is no easy task. Kaleidoscopic and richly layered, each new foray by the band expands the wide, colorful sonic palette from which they paint dazzling, vibrant structures from.

"Nothing Comes After This (NCAT) is about the feeling when you know a relationship has run it’s course. All of the little things have added up to something so big that they have eclipsed the light that the relationship once brought. It touches on feeling both empowered and heartbroken, because change is rarely easy."

You can catch Bells Atlas live

CE unveils single 'Soulstiss' + plays Rockwood tomorrow (02.08)

Soulful and lyrically enticing, CE delivers avant soul that's easy on the ears. Single "Soulstiss," based on looped, evocative vocal samples and minimal electronic drums, fluctuates between Hip Hop and R&B, but builds on an atmoshpere and production a lot moodier than those genre got us used to, transporting the listener into a spiritual realm where CE's smooth vocals act as a comforting agent. The emerging Brooklyn artist self-produced this track, which will be included in his forthcoming LP, "Songs in the Key of Solitude," with the help of Will Fraker and Matt FX. If this song is any indication of how it will sound, we can certainly look forward to feeding our souls. Catch him playing this Wednesday the 8th at Rockwood Music Hall with Space Captain & Bells Atlas. - Lea Phillips

Portland's Best in Electronica/Experimental for 2017: Gold Casio and Abronia

 We're steadily trudging through our polls for the bands all of you loyal participants in the Portland scene considered the best in music from last year. We tackled the electronic and experimental poll with this last round and we're happy to announce our top winners (though you ALL our in our books!). Congrats to...

Gold Casio for winning the overall poll (which is our local jurors' votes + the readers' poll votes) and Abronia for winning our readers' poll!

Likely the only psychedelic-electronic-disco act around, Gold Casio have been favorites in the local dance scene for a while now to those "in the know." But now, with more singles and shows under their belt, the band's incredibly rhythmic and somewhat flirty musical nature has made its way into the hearts of those outside of the usual dance club dwellers, proving that all that really glitters is Gold...Casio.

Ambiently soft yet broodingly heavy, Abronia have expanded their lineup to match their beautifully atmospheric and expansive sound. Perfect for moments of mental reflection but easy to enjoy in damn near every other scenario, Abronia's dominanation of the experimental side of the poll makes total sense, and we can't wait to hear new releases from them.

Take a peek at our other poll placers and be sure to show them some love as well!

PWRHAUS New Single, Upcoming Album

Some of your favorite local tracks may be from Anthony Schatz, but you would never know it. He's been recording under the guise of anonymity for years, with some of his albums secretly reaching heights of critical acclaim and maximum enjoyment, including from popular musicians like Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold. While those in the scene may know his face from the house shows he's thrown, everyone else will soon know that face due to his upcoming new album, due out on February 3rd.

Under the moniker PWRHAUS (or sometimes, Tonality Star), Schatz's tender concoction of ethereal dreampop, retro Motown soul and indie, topped with a witty cheekiness, is undeniably catchy. 

The newest single to come off the release, "Heartbeat," is a lo-fi reworking of a traditional love song as far as the ear can make out of the slightly droned out but definite head-bobbing beat. You can experience this track live along with the rest of the album, at his visual album release on the 8th at Holocene. Secrets, the solo project of Aaron Chapman from Nurses, and Schaus will also be a part of the soulfully dreamy fun. Take a peek at "Heartbeat" below.
