Keep Westport Weird

One of the first concerts I went to was at The Beaumont Club–the snake pit of a venue now occupied by Char Bar. I remember standing in front of the stage as UnderOath‘s front man swung screaming from the rafters, as Thursday‘s dissonant riffs filled my then angsty body. Another early concert of mine was […]

Grails and Chalices

P.O.S. and Ceschi @ Riot Room

Without P.O.S., there wouldn’t be Death Grips or Clipping or anything on Anticon. The Minneapolis native is able to charge a line with such an intensity that even the most mundane sentiments, when spilling from his mouth, have a punch few MCs can match. Joining P.O.S. on stage will be Ceschi Ramos, who splices lightning […]

Sugar Daddy’s Funky Reissue

Joe King Kologbo & The High Grace’s Sugar Daddy represents a strange time in music, in politics, and in hybridity. Recorded during the Biafran war, when Joe King Kologbo had to flee Ghana, his homeland, Sugar Daddy is a joyous mix of Afro-funk, American pop, soul grooves and electronic manipulation, an album that war could not silence […]

Psychedelic Electronics: Moon Duo’s Latest

Moon Duo is no stranger to making electronically thickened psych. Three albums deep into their career, the Portland band shows no sign of stopping their roll as evidence by their latest release, Occult Architecture Vol. 1. Basing their repeat-o-rock on spiritualist structures (think Aleister Crowley’s Dawn Golden), Moon Duo uses looped riffs to create magical atmospheres […]
