Portland Does SXSW: Alexandra Savior

Not all that glitters in the bright eyes of youth is gold, and Alexandra Savior seemingly proved that to herself. The 21-year-old songstress has a velvety croon that melts into your ears like butter, but the soothing comfort listeners get from her vocals didn't comfort the sadness in her own soul.

Right out of high school, Savior moved from the Portland suburb of Vancouver, Wa to Los Angeles to jump start her music career. Her trip was successful, quickly granting her a record deal with Columbia Records and a creative partnership with Alex Turner, the frontman for the Artic Monkeys, but while positivity was coming from all directions work wise, Savior felt there was a social disconnect between her and her new Los Angeles peers. She even told local paper Willamette Week how she thought many of them were "the devil or something" because of her youthful insecurities.

But she's turned all of those woeful feelings into inspiration for her songs. Think Lana Del Rey meets Kate Bush, Savior's tracks have themes of heartache and regret, living up fully to the designation of melancholy pop. Her debut album, Belladonna of Sadness is due out next month.





New Music Video: "The Dirge" - Eric Slick

You find a seriously depressed Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania) in his new music video for the single, "Dirge," which also stars Natalie Prass. It recently premiered over at Clash, where he had a chance to share a bit of insight into the bleak, black & white world (below).

"The post election trauma has left a lot of people feeling hopelessly glued to their social media. The video for 'The Dirge' is an absurdist look into a dystopian living space where Natalie and I try to make the best of our existence while painting our nails, exercising, and singing karaoke on a yoga ball. The computer is watching us and we are watching the computer, ad infinitum."

Slick's debut solo album is due out on April 21 via Egghunt Records. He'll be performing tomorrow afternoon at Kebabalicious, as part of the Boomfantasy Showcase of Dreams 2017, and you can welcome him home from the road on Wednesday, March 29 at World Cafe Live, opening for singer-songwriter Tift Merritt.





Portland Does SXSW: Marisa Anderson

 There's a certain beauty that comes with creating something all on your own, especially when it comes to music. Marisa Anderson takes that beauty and runs with it, mastering various instruments including including guitar, lap steel and slide to produce a very veracious and particular compositions. 

Often improvised, Anderson's emotive, mercurial sounds flow through different genre styles like Delta blues, gospel and old school Americana. She uses no effects or looping, making her productions even more personable, even granting collaborations with Mirah and Beth Ditto among others. 

She hasn't played a show locally in a little while, but at least those enjoying SXSW will get to catch her live.





New Track: "Player 2" - Alexandra Gordon

“Player 2,” the latest single from Philly singer-songwriter Alexandra Gordon, catches an intimate, exposed, lo-fi thread. Her hushed, softly-spoken narrative hints at nervousness and the potential of an emotional disconnect. The minimal, subtle steadiness of the instrumentation provides a finger-tapping foundation, without pulling back from the personal perspective. And we love the hook!
