Welles release video for "Life Like Mine," and play The Knitting Factory 06.02

The Nashville-based Welles has released an official music video for their song, "Life Like Mine" from their debut EP, Codeine. "Life Like Mine" is an up-tempo rock tune hearkening to the '90s sensibilities of artists like Beck and Pavement. Using 1960s music iconography to ironic effect (the band members are dressed like Sgt. Pepper's-era Beatles and Hendrix at Monterey), Welles wonders aloud what kind of person is able to "live a life like mine," detailing scenes of destitution, substance abuse and confusion. With swelling keys, booming percussion and overdriven guitars, it's self-aware as a rock song, even as the lyrics eschew the fabled rock n' roll lifestyle. Welles is playing the Governor's Ball Music Festival After Dark at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on June 2nd. Check out the video below! - Ethan Ames


New Track: "Suzie Lee" - RFA

Bass and guitar stream out in unison as “Suzie Lee,” the new single from RFA, settles in. A youthful, yearning tale strolling on anecdotes of adolescence, the song joyously jogs before catching instrumental fire. It’s the type of song that’ll lift you out of these back-to-work blues. RFA is part of a tri-pronged billing tomorrow night at PhilaMOCA with Dear Forbidden and The Coax. (Photo by Rocco Avallone)

New MINKA EP Available for Streaming & Download

Born In The Viper Room is the new EP from MINKA. Channeling the casually suave voicing and insatiable funky combinations of Bowie/Byrne, the band sits in a happy medium of loose, undeniably danceable compositions. Those delightful, demanding grooves, steered by crowd-commanding, eye-connecting vocals, set the wheels in motion. You can catch them live, in the flesh, at The Barbary on Thursday, June 15.

DONCAT Shares New Music Video - LA in '83

San Francisco-based psych folk act DONCAT has just shared their new video "LA in '83".

Duncan Nielsen has sported the moniker ‘DONCAT’ since 2013. Since then he’s lived in a vista-abundant neighborhood in San Francisco, CA, just south of Haight-Ashbury. From almost anywhere in his house the eye can reach the eastern edge of the city, as well as downtown. On most days, just on the shoulders of the hill behind the house, fingers of heavy fog quietly creep in. While most would consider the view an inspiration, Nielsen finds it to be a distraction. He focuses his sights inward.

As a teen, he spent the lion’s share of his time channeling classic rock and folk. In junior-high, he gifted Led Zeppelin I at a birthday party and was ostracized. By the time he entered high school, he found himself as the token kid-with-a-guitar: loved by all and known by none. This bolstered his penchant for writing iconoclastic songs, as well as skipping high school to surf alone.

Enjoy DONCAT's new music video, LA in '83.

Support Cat Hoch's Full Length Album and Show Tonight

Everyone has got to know about Cat Hoch and her band by now.

Hoch, along with bassist Theo Craig, guitarist Eric Sabatino, synth and vocalist Anna Tyler and Adam Breeden on drums, has established a top slot in Portland's music scene over the last couple years. Coming out leading in best new band polls, getting premium bookings at local music festivals and clocking in hours of hard work in general have kept Hoch and her band in the eyes of a music adoring public. The band is currently reaching out to fans for help and if it all works out, fans will be pleasantly delighted.

Thank goodness this isn't coming in the wake of an equipment theft like Hoch's last crowdfunding campaign. Instead, Hoch is reaching out in hopes of raising enough money to produce and release a full length album. Recording isn't the easiest or inexpensive feat, so Hoch's GoFundMe is asking for $4,000 to hop back in the studio with one of Portland's finest - Riley Geare.

More details into the prizes offered are given on the GoFundMe page, but include cute prizes like "a physical copy of the EP, as well as a digital download of the new record and a vociemail from me singing to you telling you I love you and thank you" for a $50 donation, and "we throw a house show personally for you in Portland, Or (as long as you can find a house). Dedicated to you and personally love you forever" for a $350 donation.

For those that still somehow haven't seen Cat Hoch and her band play live, you can catch them tonight at Bunk Bar opening up for some pretty legendary Portlanders, Colin Hegna (of Brian Jonestown Massacre) and his band Federale
