PREMIERE: Keeper Keeper - "Sticky Bomb"

Fun loving alternative surf trio Keeper Keeper are coming out with a brand new EP in a couple of days, and today they're sharing a new track to go along with it.

"Sticky Bomb" is the second song from their upcoming Paradigm EP. The track boasts an excitable, beach-cowboy feel while being a mixture between a song of love and a song of lust. About the song, the band share that "'Sticky Bomb' is an ode to one sexy creature named Anna with a firecracker tattooed on her perfect ass!" Fun and fiery, this track and "White Bear," the first to be released, give good insight into what the rest of the Paradigm EP sounds like.

Keeper Keeper is having their release show for the new mini collection of songs this Saturday at Kelly's Olympian. Playing with them will be Mobilities, Salo Panto and Low Flyer. Snag tickets to the show for just $5 so you can catch them before they hit the road next month on a tour in support of the EP.





Gritty Birds Celebrates 2 Year Anniversary

Gritty Birds, the local podcast and XRAY.fm radio show, is gearing up to celebrate its two year anniversary with a dance party and performances from some of Portland's best.

Ran by soulful singer, songwriter, producer and music writer Jeni Wren Stottrup, Gritty Birds is nearly 60 episodes deep into its collection personal conversations with artists, on the spot interviews at festivals and new music. Stottrup embodies a DIY approach to showing appreciation for Portland's music scene, always figuring out ways to keep the podcast and radio show relevant and fresh.

For the anniversary dance party and show, Skull Diver and Coco Columbia will be gracing the stage, with a secret headliner to close out the night. Festivities will be hosted by comedienne Kellie Irwin with hopefully a little bit of commentary from Stottrup herself.

Catch the Gritty Birds second anniversary party on Friday, May 12 at Kelly's Olympian. More details will be revealed closer to the show date.





Paper Gates drops 'Memory Box' tape and zine tonight

We first discovered Paper Gates last year at Treefort Music Festival and he quickly became one of our favorites in avant creation. He played the festival again this year, but what we're focusing on today is the new tape and coinciding zine he's releasing tonight at The Liquor Store.

Based on the Paper Gates production we've heard before, Memory Box is guaranteed to be another sonic adventure down the rabbit hole of the brain behind Paper Gates, Andy Rayborn. His adept use of bass clarinet shows a mastery of compound minimalism by creating such large soundscapes with so few instrumental tools. 

Joining Rayborn in the release of the Memory Box tape and zine will performances by Sheers and a solo set from Sam Adams of Sama Dams.  





Cedar Teeth Celebrate "Winter" in Spring

Cedar Teeth's indie roots run deep. Their genre bending nod to roots rock and Americana has warranted them show slots with famed Pacific Northwesterners Hillstomp and Fruition, but their upcoming second album, Farewell To Green Mountain, is sure to take them steps closer to that historic bluesy status.

"Winter" is the first single to come off the sophomore effort, and ties the romantic adventure of budding love to the glories of the seasons. Lead singer Dylan Martell sweetly sings of his personal and positive experiences on the matter, with lyrics including “When we meet, there won’t be winters.” Such a beautiful sentiment is backed by incredibly powerful plucking, driving this ballad home in all of its sweetness.

Listen to "Winter" below and be sure to check out the release show tonight at the White Eagle with General Mojo's and MOsley WOtta.
