Dan Deacon, Purple & Green Live Show Review

What is there to say about a Dan Deacon concert that hasn’t already been said? He’s probably one of the most photographed and documented live acts in recent years — and especially considering his studio albums are decent at best, covering the Baltimore native is no small task. How do I spin something that’s so well-known? Yet upon experiencing it myself, it was exactly what I expected. Branx – Portland, OR – 3 December 2011 Purple & Green As the night began, Portland electro-funk revivalists Purple & Green took the stage at the near-max capacity Branx. I’ve always been fascinated with all-ages shows in Portland, as it seems to draw the most overpowered, immature people I’ve ever seen at concerts.

She stared back at me blankly as I gleefully clutched my new copy of Empros and ran home for its first spin. The album is awesome, of course. So when Russian Circles hit the road, I had to come home early from a long Thanksgiving weekend just to see them. 2011 November 26 – Seattle, WA – Neumos Deafheaven New San Francisco black-metallers Deafheaven took the stage, and after a harmonious intro that left me thinking I was going to fly into the post-rock clouds, the double bass started, and the nasally

Javelin’s “By Hook Or By Crook” Uses Found Sounds From Brooklyn.

A new Javelin track that’s like a spaced-out New York city brand of reggaetón — but not nearly as annoying as music in that subgenre can often be. The sound uses sounds sampled from around the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, and I guess it’s for a PureVolume-related music series brought to you strangely by ASUS — a computer hardware company — and Intel. Everyone’s trying to get a bit of the musical pie. See videos of Javelin recording the track on PureVolume. I… think? They were probably happier to make this than they look like they are? Hopefully…?
