Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.

Post Rock trio Tigue releases "Strange Paradise" EP at Elsewhere on 04.27

Those who were bewitched by Tortoise's post-rock masterpiece TNT owe it to themselves to get familiar with Brooklyn's Tigue. The Brooklyn trio produces hypnotizing, circular instrumentals that slowly evolve in some kind of "internal" way - like in single "Triangle," whose video was unveiled last week. The harmonic content of the song doesn't change (i.e. there is no chorus), but the continued changes in textures and instrumental parts, together with a literally unsettling time signature, keep the track interesting, and the bodies moving. The band will celebrate the release of their new EP 'Strange Paradise' at Elsewhere on April 27th.

New Dani in Public EP Available for Streaming & Download

There’s a cool, composed yet emotionally-exposed feeling in Leverage, the new EP from Dani in Public. Seeing things like a fly on the wall, a calm-under-pressure vulnerability smoothly slides these scenes into view. Those engaging, multi-dimensional shots reel you in, and the lo-fi, trance-inducing beats make it easy to cruise through these stream-of-consciousness scenarios.

Songwriter Shlomo Franklin releases new EP on 05.16 at Rockwood Stage 2

Indie-folk singer-songwriter Shlomo Franklin releases his new EP "Don't Love Anybody" on May 16th at Rockwood's Stage 2. Franklin, one of the most active members of the NYC local music scene, tapped once again into his influences of Neil Young and Johnny Cash to produce the record's title track. Released earlier this April, the song highlights Franklin's rugged vocals and acoustic guitar, with other instruments -- keys, bass, strings, drums -- joining in as the desperation in Franklin's voice swells throughout the song. As a love song filled with pining, Franklin makes sure to get the instrumentation and deliver the emotion just right, and he does, making such a delivery of raw fervor and honesty seem easy. Listen to "Don't Love Anybody" below, and head to Rockwood on May 16th to pick up a copy of Franklin's full EP. - Will Sisskind
