Horizun - "Sunset Drive"

The underlying and often overlooked hip-hop scene in Portland is constantly expanding and developing, with our local hip-hop stars dishing out consistently on point beats and tracks. For the past few years Patrick Lamarr, monikered as Horizun, has been making a name for himself by covering hits by other artists (like Usher and Drake) and by dropping his own jams that mix silky croons with smooth r&b and bass heavy beats.

Horizun's "Sunset Drive" demonstrates Lamarr's sensual vocal ability with a music video to boot. The track, which was produced by WIZE and mastered by Jeff Bond, makes the best use of 808 trap beats and perfected melodies that translate into a visual "o" face in the Perry Jay directed video. Take a look at the galatic lust of "Sunset Drive" below. 

For more of Horizun's steamy sensations, check out his Soundcloud page.

Lindsie Feathers @ Elbo Room

Lindsie Feathers is releasing her latest full-length album, Neon Renaissance, this week. The album has been a labor of love for Feathers over the last two years, and combines an array styles and themes. The album has an overall folk and storytelling feel to it, but the stories are blanketed over developing and creative tracks. An example is the protest song that Feathers allowed us to share below, "Be Good To Me". This track has a reggae feel at its core, but filtered through rustic charm that is very refreshing.

You can catch Lindsie Feathers at Double Door on 11/24 for a free show and at Elbo Room on 11/27 for the album release event. [photo credit -- Jennifer Hardin]

Video Premiere: Royal Jelly - The Old Bay Bridge

The cool thing about the Bay Area´s local bands, particularly the artists who are surviving in San Francisco right now, is that they tend to be very committed to their home base. A great example of local artists paying homage to the changing times in their city (for better or for worse) is Royal Jelly Jive. This great vintage swing-soul band has written a song and shot a video to commemorate the destruction of a part of the Old Bay Bridge.

The video was shot at the Embarcadero in honor of this special occasion with a song they wrote inspired by the bridge itself... aptly named, "The Old Bay Bridge". Check out the video and support local artists who are keeping their head above water in the San Francisco Bay Area (literally and figuratively)!

Band to Watch: almondsandpearls

We do our best to stay on the cutting edge and keep our ears to the ground for new Bay Area music groups and artists. A pat on the back feels well deserved as we are pleased to share new music from a great new psych R&B band called almondsandpearls. Their music is eclectic and unique, the members are experienced and funloving and exactly what an ever changing city like San Francisco needs as it evolves into a new era of art and music.

almondsandpearls is a band that has evolved over the years from multiple musicians living, hanging out, and rocking together in one of San Francisco’s last standing artist warehouse spaces. The line up includes visual artist and vocalist, Breck Omar Brunson (Former frontman of The Apes, Screens), guitarist, Kyle DeMartini (Down Dirty Shake, Fast Eddy), and multi-instrumentalist and sound designer Sia Mozaffari (Should We Run). Our sound is psychedelic R&B with a tinge of jazz, reflecting the diverse background from which each member comes from.

Take a listen to their new singles, Soul Free and Peppermint and please support their current indiegogo campaign! Support local independent music!

Jennifer Budd - More Than Just "Lip Service"

 Jennifer Budd brings the flow and mean old school R&B vibes with her debut album “Lip Service”. Hints of gospel, blues, and funk blend together to make a raucous entrance, lit up with slick production and some classic horn stings to drive the point home. From the slippery groove of album opening “Church”, to the rock-n-soul of “The Colonel”, this album brings a full and honest effort of an artist showing her raw physical talent and emotion. Lead single “Don’t Even” starts in the small dark corner of an after hours lounge, and ends centre stage in a flurry of flashing lights. “Lip Service” drops November 13th, with a release party at the Park St Gasworks, Hamilton, November 14th.
