Vibrissae does Siouxsie, show tomorrow

There's no better time of year to participate in a Siouxsie & the Banshees tribute album than now. Local electrogaze trio Vibrissae were fortunate enough to do so. Sao Paulo, Brazil based blog and label The Blog That Celebrates Itself released Desert Kisses: A Tribute to Siouxsie & the Banshees a little over a week ago and its celebration of one of the most influential post-punk bands in the game is ideal for the Halloween season. Vibrissae's featured cover of "Red Over White" aces the balance between their individual, celebrated sound and that which makes Siouxsie & the Banshees still worshipped to this day.

Vibrissae has a show coming up tomorrow supporting the first Portland appearance for Cincinatti art rockers Lung, along with the beautifully blended indie-electropop-punky alt blues of dynamic duo When We Met and the psych tinged post-punk of the New Not Normals at the High Water Mark.

Hopefull they'll play their version of "Red Over White" tomorrow but just in case, here it is:


Mood Music: Dim Wit - "Wow Ow Now"

*photo by Marlee Banta 

It's nearly impossible for these Deli eyes to stay open this morning without the help of this new track by the lo-fi funny boys of Dim Wit. They just dropped their first official single on Friday and for anyone that's had the chance to see Dim Wit live, you'll know how perfectly appropriate of a debut track it is for the duo's (sometimes trio) schtick.

Just picture them, clad in colorful wigs, rockin' about as those slinky string lines and screams come in as "Wow Ow Now" runs its course. Channeling Dim Wit's energy both on "Wow Ow Now" and from experiencing their live sets is the only way to start the week out.

Listen to "Wow Ow Now" below and be sure to catch them next week at Smart Collective.

Arbor Daze makes the sounds of the season

 It's been quite nice moderately transitioning from devil's dick level heat to the gloomy frigid weather Portland is typically known for. While there's many a sad album signifying our respective feelings on this transition, none really does more justice than Arbor Daze's ambient despondence.

Our eyes have been on Aspen Koch's solo project since she tied on one of our Artist of the Month polls a little while back. She's been quite busy since then putting the finishing touches on last month's release, Four Months. Her work as Arbor Daze is fairly minimalistic in instruments wielded yet maximal in its impact on the listener - using just a guitar, a loop pedal and her voice to sonically capture the brood - though she collaborated  with others on Four Months.

Thankfully we're not the only ones to take notice of Koch's efforts (and Sarah Lane's of the Late Great, for that matter!), as there's a show tomorrow displaying a bit of appreciation. 

It's just about the time for the Jade Lounge's October #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday, just in case you somehow didn't know) Showcase and Arbor Daze, along with Sarah Lane, Jen Deale of Santiam and soulful jazz guitarist Angelica Pray will be performing. Come experience the haze of Arbor Daze in person tomorrow as you fall for the other lovely ladies as well!


Mood Music: Scourge of Ians - "La La"

Though we're still reeling from the heaviness of Sleep's performance last night, we're in need of something just as weighty but at a faster pace. What more perfect a fit than a litte bit of Scourge of Ians, whose consistently perfect balance of classic, raw punk with rhythm oriented post punk offers a nice and needed break from our local saturated music scene. 

They'll be joining Disassturbator (for the final show of their tour!) and Moogwynd on stage tonight at the Kenton Club, so if you're still in the mood later make sure you stop by. It's free!


Saturday Night Sounds: Schaus - "Galileo's Song"

 Here we find ourselves, yet again, on a Saturday night. Some of us may be out partying on the town while others might be cozily nestled in their beds. For those of us that prefer a personal party at home or may be looking for some tunes to get them in the mood to party as they're getting ready, we've got a fairly fresh track coming to you from local experimental artist Schaus.

"Galileo's Song" dropped earlier this month and is an artsy, avant-pop track that properly utilizes addiciting synth lines to create a soundscape you can't help but be immersed in. 

Listen to the track below and let it be the energetic addition to your party playlist or the necessary auditory element to your Saturday night chill sesh.
