    No News From Home is the 2nd LP from Portland, Oregon quartet Houndstooth and the follow-up to Ride Out The Dark. That record was labeled one of 2013's all too overlooked delights by SPIN while their hometown Portland Mercury called it an extraordinarily good album, a perfect representation of the band's trademark balancing of ease and passion. News is an altogether more mature record that widens the bands sound: from Velvets-style churners to shimmering, breezy, love songs, all penned by songwriting duo John Gnorski and Katie Bernstein.

    Burning Off Impurities

    Portland's Grails return with their first studio album since 2004's Redlight. An increased interest in psychedelic, ambient, and world music is most likely to blame for the group's exploration of the lesser-traveled paths of modern music. In addition, their eclectic range of collaborative endeavors - guitarist Zak Riles is also in M. Ward's band, while drummer Emil Amos has moonlighted as Jandek's drummer - has introduced an element of improvisation and reinterpretation of ideas that's both brilliant and earnest.

    Feast Of The Hunters' Moon

    Sugar Hill Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of Feast of the Hunters' Moon, the debut album from Portland, Oregon-based Black Prairie. Featuring three-fifths of The Decemberists and two of the city's finest folk stylists, the heavily acoustic debut was produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie) and embodies the rich sonic landscape of the Portland music scene while integrating the diverse backgrounds of its members. As described by dobroist Chris Funk, the band's sound bridges the music of Clarence White and Ennio Morricone in a way that defies genre characterization.

    Decemberists guitarist Funk and bassist Nate Query hatched the plan to start a primarily instrumental string band while on the road. Funk began to spend time playing the square-necked Dobro guitar, and the pair recruited fellow Decemberist Jenny Conlee to play accordion. Portland musicians Annalisa Tornfelt and Jon Neufeld then filled out the ranks on violin and guitar, respectively.

    Black Prairie's songs consist mostly of instrumentals; their arrangements draw from bluegrass and old-time string band traditions, while Conlee's accordion and Tornfelt's violin instill klezmer and gypsy elements to the band's unique and vibrant sound. The quintet sometimes takes an almost-classical approach to composition, with songs containing multiple movements that ebb and flow in a way that differs greatly from traditional pop or bluegrass structure. The band decided it would be a shame not to make use of Tornfelt's vocal ability, so she sings on a handful of tracks as well. The thirteen album tracks include mostly original compositions by the five band members, with a smattering of traditional material intertwined throughout.

    Animals In The Median

    Salmon Colored Vinyl

    Voted Portland's 2012 Best New Band by Willamette Week

    One of NPR's Artists you should've known in 2012

    There is a stillness between kissing lips that belies the beating hearts connected to them,
    a calm in the simple gesture that holds tumultuous emotions close, keeping their caprice
    from pulling you apart. For the past three years, Radiation City has scored the soundtrack
    to relationships such as these. Moments where Quiet/Bombast, Future/Past,
    Man/Woman, Hope/Fear are conjoined; from their use of modern electronic sounds and
    the restraint of classic bossa records, to the urgency and harmony of northern soul, the
    band has codified seemingly disparate ideas into a sound and ethos that is at once
    refreshing and classic. Their second LP Animals In The Median will be released May 7th.
    Founded in 2009 amid the glow of one budding love affair, Radiation City quickly
    blossomed into a family, finding itself with a second couple and another multi
    instrumentalist besides. If the quintet's early live shows and debut LP The Hands That
    Take You quickly earned them a reputation as one of Portland, Oregon's most promising
    young acts, the subsequent national tours and 2011's EP Cool Nightmare made good on
    that promise. The band's expanding soundscape of new romanticism has drawn
    accolades from NPR, Time, and KEXP to name a few.

    The new full length features 12 songs recorded over the span of a year in both rural
    Washington and urban Portland. You can hear a focused songwriting, lush arrangements,
    and gorgeous harmonies. You can hear the celebration and lament of a sea change year
    which saw the passing of matriarchs, the betrayals and betrothals of loved ones, the
    baring and bruising of hopeful hearts in an increasingly dangerous world. Moreover, you
    can hear a band edified, coming into their own in rich and simple gesture.

The Robinson's new band features Chris Funk (The Decemberists), Evan Railton (Swords) and Seth Lorinczi (The Golden Bears). On their self-titled debut, produced by Kevin, Blue Giant combine the traditional sounds of American music, country, bluegrass and folk, with driving, straight-ahead rock n roll. The 12 tracks on the album, all written by Kevin and Anita, showcase that versatility from the classic country feel of "Lonely Girl," to the melodic guitars in "Clean The Clock," to the mellow, deceptively simple "Gone For Good" which features Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker.

    Wild And Reckless

    Earlier this year, the Portland, Oregon-based Blitzen Trapper accomplished a unique feat for a rock band who has been releasing albums and touring for the better part of two decades: a staged musical titled Wild & Reckless that ran for 28 performances at Portland Center Stage. Today, the band is announcing a new album of the same title that was born from the stage production and as a companion to their 2008 breakthrough album Furr.

    'Rebel' is a song about a guy who for the love of a girl follows in his father's footsteps only to find it to be a scam, explains principal and frontman Eric Earley. After several tries at the American dream he ends up selling cocaine to blue bloods in the Hollywood hills. Something of a lost Raymond Carver story with shambling near-country soundtrack.

    The album Wild & Reckless was born from the stage production that the band spent the better part of a year producing. The half musical, half rock-opera dealt with heroin abuse, desperation, true love and western power structures. The story evoked a bygone era of Portland with this sci-fi love story, featuring a rock-and-roll score that paired unreleased songs with favorites from the band's catalog.

    Following the success of the production, the band took 7 original songs from the production and developed the theme further into the 12 songs that comprise the new album Wild & Reckless.

    Frontman Eric Earley also sees the record as a companion and extention of their 2008 album Furr. Wild and Reckless is something like a cross-eyed stepchild to Furr, in that it chronicles the darker dystopian stories of rural and suburban west coast death-drive via a riffing psychedelic landscape. Ten years after Furr with all its talk of murder and the end of the western world, it seems there's more to tell.

    Blitzen Trapper is Eric Earley (songwriter/singer), Erik Menteer (guitar, keyboard), Brian Adrian Koch (drums, vocals), Michael Van Pelt (bass) and Marty Marquis (keyboard, vocals). Wild & Reckless was produced by Eric Earley and Michael Van Pelt and was recorded by Gregg Williams at The Trench, in Portland, Oregon. It was mixed by James Brown (Foo Fighters, Kings Of Leon, Blitzen Trapper's All Across This Land) at The Union.

    case/lang/veirs, a true collaboration between three phenomenal, self-driven artists: avant-rock icon Neko Case, legendary musical nomad k.d. lang, and indie folk star Laura Veirs. The women wrote all 14 songs and shared lead vocals equally, sometimes even within the same track. Full of stunning harmonies and spellbinding rhythms, case/lang/veirs travels through aches and eras, torch songs and tributes to the undersung.

    They worked over two and a half years in Portland, Oregon, where lang and Veirs both live, sometimes in lang's loft with a view of Mount St. Helens, others in Veirs' dining room or backyard studio. The album was written from the ground up without any real plan beyond a desire to make music together and a faith that it would reveal itself. They produced the album with Tucker Martine, at his Portland studio in November 2015.

    "The combination of spirits, the combination of artistry, is very unique, because we have definite similarities, but we are very, very different, and it creates a really interesting thing," says lang. "It's a truly collaborative record where our individual essences are firmly in place."

    What Will Destroy You

    First Pressing Of The Vinyl Limited To 1,000 Pieces On Creme Colored Wax

    Kyle Morton, the lead singer of Portland's indie-orchestra Typhoon, releases his debut solo album. The
    ten song album, What Will Destroy You, was recorded by Kyle and longtime Typhoon producer/collaborator
    Paul Laxer.

    Of the album, Kyle says, Most of these songs were written in about a day, many of them while walking
    aimlessly around Portland, others wrote themselves in the moments just before sleep. They were recorded and
    mixed with the invaluable help of Paul Laxer from the inviolate comfort of his living room, mostly in the evenings
    during the winter and early spring of 2015. At the outset there was no deliberate attempt at an overarching
    concept, though once finished and lined up together the theme of my subconscious was revealed to me: this
    was a record about love, more specifically (not devolving into platitudes just yet), the ambivalence of erotic

    With a couple exceptions these songs are about kinds of love, from old fashioned heartache to acute
    sadomasochism; some drawn from personal experience and others extrapolated from years of keen
    observation on the subject.

    Graves At Sea / Sourvein Split

    Two of doom metal's mightiest of feedback-laden riff worshippers - Portland's GRAVES AT SEA and Cape Fear's SOURVEIN - have united in sound, mind and spirit for the ultimate split of earth-smoldering amplifier worship.

    GRAVES AT SEA, whose contributions leave an eerie aura complete with tortured vocals, foreboding composition, and a general sense of dread, occupy Side A. Recorded by Billy Anderson, (Melvins, Sleep, Neurosis) Betting On Black and Confession finds the all-consuming sludge for which the band is notorious, flooding in amongst the tortured howls and shrieks of vocalist Nathan Misterek.

    SOURVEIN, who've now existed for two decades of distortion, damage and total doom, solidify Side B. With three songs produced and recorded by Mike Dean Of Corrosion of Conformity, these odes of heavy combine toxic riffs, grooves and just the right amount of psychedelic appeal.

    Return To The Moon

    EL VY (pronounced like a plural of Elvis; rhymes with 'hell pie') is the musical collaboration between Matt Berninger, vocalist and lyricist of The National, and Brent Knopf, the Portland musician and producer best known for his work in Menomena and his more recent band, Ramona Falls.

    The album is a project Berninger and Knopf have been thinking about for years. Their friendship spans nearly a decade, starting back when the National and Menomena played small half-empty clubs along America's west coast. Feeling an immediate musical kinship, the pair kept in touch, Brent sending Matt occasional rough sketches of music and Matt responding with melodies and lyrics. Finally, in the winter and spring of 2014-15, they actually got together to make an album.

    Occult Architecture Vol. 2

    Meaning all things magick and supernatural, the root of the word occult is that
    which is hidden, concealed, beyond the limits of our minds. If this is occult, then
    the Occult Architecture of Moon Duo's fourth album - a psychedelic opus in two
    separate volumes released in 2017 - is an intricately woven hymn to the invisible
    structures found in the cycle of seasons and the journey of day into night, dark
    into light.

    Offering a cosmic glimpse into the hidden patterning embedded in everything,
    Occult Architecture reflects the harmonious duality of these light and dark energies
    through the Chinese theory of Yin and Yang.

    Following the Yin (feminine, darkness, night, earth) represented on Occult Architecture
    Vol. 1, Vol. 2 presents the Yang. Yang means "the bright side of the hill" and
    is associated with the male, sun, light and the spirit of heaven, and as such Vol. 2
    explores the light and airy elements of Moon Duo's complex psyche.

    "In production, we referred to Vol. 1 as the fuzz dungeon, and Vol. 2 as the crystal
    palace," guitarist Ripley Johnson explains. "The darkness of Vol. 1 gave birth to the
    light of Vol. 2. We had to have both elements in order to complete the cycle. We're
    releasing them separately to allow them their own space, and to ensure clarity
    of vision. To that end we also mixed Vol. 2 separately, in the height of Portland
    summer, focusing on its sonic qualities of lightness, air, and sun. Listeners can
    ultimately use the two volumes individually or together, depending on circumstance
    or the desired effect."

    Vol. 2 was mixed in Portland by the band's longtime collaborator Jonas Verwijnen.

    The Queen Of Hearts

    Nonesuch Records will release The Queen of Hearts, the debut album from Offa Rex, an adventurous new project featuring English singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney and The Decemberists. Produced and recorded by Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket, Neko Case) and Colin Meloy at Martine's studio in Portland, OR, and mostly arranged by Chaney, the thirteen tracks on The Queen of Hearts draw largely on traditional English-Irish-Scottish repertoire to create a transatlantic musical conversation that flirts with psychedelia and folk rock while maintaining its own inimitable identity.

    The origins of Offa Rex can be traced to a tweet. Meloy, a fan of Olivia Chaney's 2015 Nonesuch debut, The Longest River, struck up a dialog with her over Twitter, which eventually led to her supporting The Decemberists on a U.S. tour. Chaney says: Every so often [on the tour] Colin and I would have these fleeting but quite intense conversations about songwriting and singing traditional songs. One night he asked me, grinning, 'Have you ever thought of having a backing group? We'll be your Albion Dance Band.'

    Meloy adds: "There's this weird relationship between British and American music, this interesting trade and theft that goes back and forth. My hope was that if we-the neophytes, the dilettantes, the pretenders-brought Olivia to Portland to work with Tucker, perhaps these traditional British songs would be infused with something different.From the heady harpsichord swirl that engulfs album opener The Queen of Hearts to the warm, delicate drone of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, or the cold, grey riff that heralds Sheepcrook and Black Dog, it's evident that Offa Rex is different indeed, upending its folk roots and imbuing these songs with exploratory verve.
