Portland and Seattle team up for a double album release celebration

Seattle's the Snakebites are back...and when I say back, I mean with their first album in a decade! That's due for a pretty damn huge celebration, and that's exactly what's going to happen. The Snakebites are having two separate release shows for Blue Curse #2 - one at the LoFi Gallery in Seattle on the 22nd and one in Portland at the Kenton Club on the 23rd. What's extra chill about this, is that two Portland bands will be helping the Snakebites (and other Seattle band Prom Queen) with their release parties. Former Deli Portland Artist of the Month nominees and lovely bunnies Laura Palmer's Death Parade will be joined by dark poppers the Slutty Hearts as the part of the Portland support team for both shows. 

Come out and join the party! Tickets for the Kenton Club show are $5 and the show starts at 9pm. 

   

New Video: "Arranged" (Live - BrooklynVegan Acoustic Sessions) - Abi Reimold

Below is a live solo performance by Abi Reimold of "Arranged," which is the opening track from her latest album Wriggling (Sad Cactus). It was recorded in Philadelphia inside a defunct train tunnel with a skylight for BrooklynVegan Acoustic Sessions. You can catch Riemold this evening at The Leonard Pearlstein Gallery for Philly Radness, where you'll also experience an "interactive pop-up skatepark," as well as the sounds of Queen of Jeans and Hemming.

TEEN, Chaos Chaos, Von Sell and Gold Child play Audiofemme Anniversay bash tonight (04.19)

A NYC based music blog that fosters music journalism by female music writers, Audiofemme tonight is hosting an anniversary bash at Greenpoint's Good Room with lots of talented, mostly female fronted artists. We blogged about psych pop quartet TEEN and indie pop sister duo Chaos Chaos more than once in this blog - check out those links to refresh your ears. Gold Child (pictured) will also perform on the bill; the trio offers tasteful and relaxed Americana with dreamy overtones and is led by the confident alto of Emily Fehler. On the bill also Von Sell, the solo project of David Von Sell, who released two Hypem-blessed singles that successfully blend experimental textures and soul-pop melodies with jazzy tinges. Check out his latest single 'I Insist' streaming below, and last year's debut 'Ivan,' here - we added the latter to The Deli's playlist of Best electronic songs by emerging NYC artists. On the bill also indie rock quartet Marigolds, who evoke Robyn Hitchcock's legendary early band, the Soft Boys.

We added this Gold Child song to The Deli's playlist of Best rootsy songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

   

Debut Grayling EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The duality of introspectively emotive lyricism meeting the outpouring of external release come to a head when Grayling, a.k.a. Lexi Campion (formerly of Edelweiss), peers inward whilst pushing outward. The result, her debut EP Everything That Burns (which was recently released via NDE Records), is a musical tug of war - heavy and gripping. Hold on tight.
