Overlake shares single from sophomore LP, plays release show at Mercury Lounge

Readying their follow-up release to 2014 debut record “Sighs,” Overlake share “Winter Is Why” (streaming below) from sophomore album “Fall” due out May 12th via Bar/None Records. The track emerges via a guitar figure delivered with orchestral sensibility, creating an immediate mood of majestic grandeur.  Forceful power trio drumming and counterpoint descending bass tones further punctuate unexpected rhythmic accents underneath this rising melody. Settling in to calmer patterns, dreamy vocals describe how the “summer sun hangs around” and “windswept cones on the sand” suggest the winter season.  This over five minute long track successfully blends the quieter passages of gazey icons My Bloody Valentine (think “Come In Alone”) with that band's more explosive and pitch-bendy moments. While still finalizing dates for an April tour, the band has scheduled a record release show at Mercury Lounge on May 12th with support from local favorites Dead Stars and Heaven. - Dave Cromwell

New Music Video: "Lost Moon" - Nightlands

Lulling us into a dream-like state, Nightlands, a.k.a. Dave Hartley (of The War on Drugs), takes us down the rabbit hole of his fascination with "Simpsonwave" YouTube videos, which match scenes from The Simpsons with vaporwave tracks. He recruited the genre's originator, Lucien Hughes, to help him with the visuals for his new music video for "Lost Moon," premiering recently over at Interview Magazine. It's the lead single from his forthcoming LP I Can Feel The Night Around Me, which is slated for release on May 5 via Western Vinyl. Hartley also has plans to hit the road in support of his forthcoming album, and will be taking the stage at Johnny Brenda's on Saturday, May 27, with tourmates The Building.

New Music Video: "Baby" - Needle Points

This morning - we wanted to get your week started off right with Needle Points's new video for "Baby," off the band's latest release Feel Young. Model/fan Federica Hermann makes us all want her to be our baby in the vintage-y footage. It has us longing for those carefree, summer nights where you ain't got shit to do but hang, drink beers and wild out to your favorite tunes. We're definitely ready to leave this winter behind already!

Portland Does SXSW: TYuS

Once one of if not the biggest genres of the '90s, R&B was known for being the go-to soundtrack for making love and karaoke jams. R&B has been making a comeback lately, with many artists of a younger generation turning to the styles their parents loved (and possibly used to bring them into the world) to drive their musical creations. Portland's arena for the style is pretty open, but local young'n TYuS wants to make sure we "never forget" him.

The title of his album, Never Forget is fuilled with tracks that incorporate the best of the new wave of trap beats and the sensual, archetypal sounds that serve as nostalgia for most of us. He must be doing something right since he's now signed to Warner Brothers Records, but his more DIY approach to romantic hip hop is something we all can't help but appreciate. TYuS doesn't play around Portland much but whenever he does, panties are sure to drop.
