PREMIERE: Echo Pearl Varsity - "MmmHmm"

Echo Pearl Varsity were our April artists of the month for a reason. Their jazz fusion meets post-rock compositions are radically fresh and inventive, standing out in a music scene where garage and indie typically reign. The band is back with a new single, a cover track actually, paying homage to one of their favorite new age electro-jazz musicians.

"MmmHmm" was originally done by Flying Lotus featuring Thundercat, coming from his highly touted 2010 album Cosmogramma. It's the first single EPV will be releasing from an EP of cover tracks, due out in June before they out for their second west coast tour. A love and respect for FlyLo, the artists on his label Brainfeeder and a special adoration between EPV bassist Nolan Henderson and Thundercat were cited as reasons for choosing "MmmHmm" in particular, among other reasons.

"We chose this song to challenge ourselves, knowing it was a catchy track but surprisingly tricky to play," says saxophonist Levi Downey. "It took us about two months to get down, due to the deceptive melody super shredder bass-line. But, after some long arguments and rugged practice, it all came together."

Listen to "MmmHmm" below and be on the lookout for Echo Pearl Varsity's next covers. You can see them live on May 19 at the Twilight Cafe with The Welkin Dim, Wake of Dark for the Hawking album release.





Green Noise Reopens, Celebrates with DJs and Live Music

Portland is the kind of place where vinyl appreciation is taken seriously amongst much of the masses. While we've lost some of our beloved record shops, the few that are still around are special places that see much business at times other than just Record Store Day. Green Noise Records has lasted throughout the years, changing locations a couple times since its original southeast locale, but they've found yet another new up in northeast that they're celebrating throughout the weekend.

Starting today, Green Noise is hosting their own sort of welcoming party, slated with sets from djs and bands alike. Most of today's festivities, which started around noon, are dj sets. Patrons are invited to peruse the shop's offerings while enjoying records spun by djs like Vera Rubin, Erich Zann and Ken Dirtnap, or tomorrow's live performances from EMS, Low Culture and Davey Quinn

Admission is free and if you scope a few records you'd like to pick up, everything is 15% off the whole weekend. Come check out Green Noise's new space, some awesome bands and djs, and some new vinyl sounds as well.





30 Best Places for Music in PDX? Let's see!

 Clickit Ticket, a ticket resale marketplace that specializes in helping customers find sold out or otherwise hard to get tickets, has taken the time to compile a list of the 30 best places to catch live music in Portland. For locals, some of the names on the list aren't surprising. Places like Mississippi Studios and Holocene are essentially household names and recurring weekend haunts at this point.

Where the gets interesting is with its featuring of certain less popular-to-the-masses spots. They're not all by any means venues but certain diamonds in the rough, like Spinella's Off the Wall or Andina Restaurant, where patrons can catch more varied arrays of music.

Part list for newscomers and tourists, part reminder of places that haven't closed down yet for locals, Clickit Ticket's list is fairly well rounded. Look at it in full and see all the ones you've been to HERE.





New Music Video: "One Shot" - Rockers Galore

For the past five years, Blayer Point-du-jour and the Rockers Galore have journeyed back and forth between Philadelphia and the Dominican Republic to hone and craft their new material in preparation for their sophomore full-length album, Cultivation. In a lot of ways, the new music video for their latest single, “One Shot,” is the perfect montage of the journey that led up to the album. While the footage predominately features the band jamming in one of the many studios that Cultivation was developed in (complete with dancing with members from Peek-A-Boo Revue), it segues to various backdrops of the band members journeying through Philly’s waterfront and tropical destinations. Add it all up, and it plays out to be a joyous prelude to tomorrow night’s album release celebration at MilkBoy.
