Fog Father make their video debut with "RIP"

Treefort is finally here and many Portland bands are making the trek out to Boise to represent our city. Among them is the infectious indie pop of Fog Father, who've got some great things in the works. Last night was their tour kick off show at Rontoms and today they're making their music video debut with "RIP," off their Razzle Dazzle EP. The video is just at trippy as the song itself and a fair indication of how fun they are onstage.

Fog Father will be rockin a double play day at Treefort, playing the Gritty Birds Showcase with fellow Portlanders Bitch'n & And And And as well as their official Treefort performance at the Linen Building at 7:30pm. If you missed them last night and won't be in Idaho, enjoy "RIP" below.

BAD REED - LIVE AT HOMEGROWN!

Bad Reed are a 4 piece alt-rock group from Brantford. They have an interesting mix up in their tunes. Their self titled EP was released in June of last year. The track "Punch It" has grungy guitars wailing away over top of a tight rhythm section but the synth and vocal work is what really stood out for me. The singer has some Grace Slick vocal action that's slightly mesmerizing. Add in the synth and your mind will be gently spinning throughout the track. A good mix of catchy and uniqueness coming from Bad Reed. You can see them LIVE at Homegrown Hamilton on Friday March 25th. - Kris Gies

New Track: "Diamond Marrow" - Sing, Bird of Prey

Sing, Bird of Prey masterfully takes us back in time with the band's new track, "Diamond Marrow." The wonderfully-crafted psych-pop/rock ditty is the first single off the group's upcoming LP, and it originally appeared on the Seagreen Records compilation Singles on Valentine's Day 2016 earlier this year. Sing, Bird of Prey's full-length album was recorded and produced by Kyle Pulley at Headroom Philadelphia.

   

Ecstatic Vision Opening for Earthless at Underground Arts March 19

The entrancing power of psych-rockers Ecstatic Vision pulls listeners into a mind-warping vortex. Possessing a primal grip, the band’s gravitational pull is rooted in the inertia of its interlocking, tone-setting backend, consuming the surroundings in a tunnel of momentum. With that foundation laid, the internal, tormenting temperature is constantly on the rise. As shards of scorching guitar rip through the sonic tapestry, the vocals serve as thunderous proclamations, guiding you into unfamiliar territory. Tonight at Underground Arts, they’re paired with San Diego’s Earthless, who will be blasting off and stamping the cosmos with their personal brand of raunchy psych-rock. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $16, 21+ - Michael Colavita
