A Deli Premiere: Teddy and The Rough Riders' new track "Goldmine"

Almost everyone not into mainstream country is guilty of saying that "all country music sounds the same," and the Nashville scene would be certainly found guilty in feeding that prejudice. However, Teddy and the Rough Riders are living proof that there are noble exceptions. We are premiering here their single “Goldmine,” a track that swims in twang, but also features an inventiveness in its composition and production that makes it almost Beatlesque. Drawing from a wide range of influences that include elements of psychedelic pop, Dixieland rock, and classic country crooning, Teddy and The Rough Riders have developed a sound that's at once soothing and intriguing, rootsy but forward looking. Whatch out for their debut LP, coming out later in 2017.





Holy Oak engages through storytelling on upcoming LP Second Son

Folk singer songwriter Neil Holyoak, better known as Holy Oak, makes you feel something, even when you don’t want to. The musician sets a tone for his newest single, "Isabelle," from the first few strums of his guitar. Through his gentle voice and soulful acoustics, he brings out a story within you that probably isn’t too hard to trace back. Holy Oak sings about remembrance, time passing and things changing, “…missing people who have gone while also being grateful for their presence in my life.” His warm, full circle approach to music casts a nostalgic sense of closure that you can’t seem to reach. It’s interesting that two points can be so close together, but so far apart all at once.

Neil Holyoak is a one of kind folk and country singer, and he isn’t to be passed up. Keep an eye out for their newest album, Second Son, out this June. - Kayla Hay

What Was Sound is the Perfect Alternative Festival for the Holiday Weekend

Originally, celebrating this year's Memorial Day weekend was highlighted by a much-wanted performance by Frank Ocean at the Sasquatch Music Festival in the Columbia Gorge. But, in true Frank Ocean fashion, fans were faked out as he dropped off one of the headlining slots. In all honesty, heading out to the Gorge is a hassle anyway, especially when the chance of running into Fred Armisen, who's got a set of his own at the fest, is ever increased. Thank goodness the first annual What Was Sound Fest is happening, so much closer to home, with so much less hipster novelty to deal with.

Sub Rosa Curation teamed up with the Portland Mercury, Do503, Next Northwest, XRAY.fm and the Rose City Festival to bring Brooklyn dream rockers DIIV and El Ten Eleven's mellow post-rock with everyone's favorite indie folkers Woods and Fruit Bats down to Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Local support from Bed., the 11 piece funky afrobeat of Jujuba, Small Leaks Sink Ships and the recently added Sunbathe round the lineup out with some good balance in their first year.

Next Northwest and Vortex Music Magazine are hosting a free What Was Sound launch party tonight at White Owl Social Club, featuring a performance from Small Leaks Sink Ships. Come through and get a sneak peek of what will be happening at Waterfront Park on Saturday, and listen to the newest Small Leaks' track "Dancing Devil" below.

THINLY VEILED DOUBLE ENTENDRES - "CAPTAIN FISH HEART"

Long band name/short song. The Thinly Veiled Double Entendres have released a video for their single "Captain Fish Heart". This little ditty is a fun rockabilly tune that'll get your toes tappin'. I recommend findin' yourself a nice lady to hit the floor with and spin around until it's time for the next drink. TTVDE put on a great live show with a solid rhythm section, powerful vocals, slinky guitar licks and nice harmonies. They could play at the saloon or the rock bar...as long as they have some booze to fuel em up. Go see these ladies and fellas on Friday at Cherry Colas along with Flamingo Báy and Jim Dan Dee. - Kris Gies
