Those sweet Swedes still got it. After 10+ years, numerous tours and a new record every 3 years or so, The Shout Out Louds are making sure they are not just a thing of the mid-2000’s past. Since the band’s iconic break out album Howl Howl Gaff Gaff in 2002, the band’s frenetic energy has imbued every work they have released, all stamped with their unique stream of conscious lyrics, bubbling harmonies, and expert tambourine stylings.
KPSU rocks the boat with local-artist driven “kruises” on The Portland Spirit, in which passengers board for a party that helps to raise funds for the university station’s very own FM signal. Last Friday’s event came at the end of an 85 degree day, and a leisurely late-night cruise with a couple of Portland’s finest up-and-coming seemed an ideal way to cool down and start the weekend.
Jeff Mangum has been on tour a bit the past couple years, including sold out shows in the Pacific NW. It appears nostalgia has got the better of him, as he and his mates have reformed the iconic Neutral Milk Hotel. Today just got a bit less Monday-y. No nearby dates yet, but more coming soon, so keep checking back here or at the band’s website: http://walkingwallofwords.com/tour.html

Back in 2010, probably like many others, a track grabbed me at the end of a popular, vampire-themed television episode. It had raw beats, a dirty guitar hook, and threatened to beat the mistress.
The artist behind the song was Cary Ann Hearst, and as I dug a little deeper I found video after video of songs played in tiny clubs in collaboration with musician Michael Trent. That “Hells Bells” track had made it to HBO, but the singing/songwriting duo(who at some point got hitched and took on the name Shovels & Rope) traveled like gypsies only within their stomping grounds of the Southeast. Their music was deeply planted in life experience and parables, abundant with endearing vocals and so much heart. There is also a lot of sass- that kind of Southern sensibility that knocks you down a notch if you’re getting too big for your britches.
Grunge is Dad Rock, now. Just accept it. It’s not the end of music, and whether you’re annoyed by Skrillex or terrified of Odd Future, the fact that everyone born after 1990 can drive a car, vote, die in war, and legally drink in any bar in the country doesn’t mean the apathetic sludge pop created during the Gen-X heyday is any less great. Similarly, seeing Soundgarden in 2013 must be what it was like to see The Rolling Stones or Led Zeppelin in around 1981 – cock rock turned daddy dick for an area crowd of fans willing to pay top dollar to pump their fist and brag to their friends that they were there, man.
Before launching into the parody song “Big Dumb Sex,” Chris Cornell told the crowd that the band had written the tune as a joke all those years ago as their brand of music started attracting more meatheads than skinny guys with dark circles under their eyes. It was funny then, but it didn’t play well to the crowd of mostly men over 40, many of whom wore baseball caps (because they’re fans of actual baseball), and couldn’t stand through the entire two-and-a-half hour set. And, all of whom paid over $50 a pop to see one of their favorite acts dangle on the mortal coil before drying into the fucking embarrassing husk of band Black Sabbath trots out for outdoor music festivals.

Jose Mendeles might be the coolest guy in Portland. His knowledge of all things drum translates directly through all of his appendages. It only makes sense, as he surrounds himself with beautiful vintage kits and toys at his NE Prescott shop Revival Drums. Alongside David Coniglio, the duo known as 1939 Ensemble got an otherwise typical Wednesday night warmed up in funky, polyrhythmic fashion. Then came Denver, Colorado trio Wovenhand.
