Russian Circles – Geneva Album Review

The instrumental, post-rock landscape is a bit crowded as of late. But in just three albums, the Chicago/Seattle trio Russian Circles have cemented themselves at the top, and this fact is readily apparent in their fantastic new album, Geneva. Russian Circles have always bounced between the moments that recall sunshine and the moments that recall...Read...

These Arms Are Snakes Live Show Review

It’s official: These Arms Are Snakes’ frontman Steve Snere is my favorite frontman. Simultaneously goofy and raw, Snere is the kind of guy you might think would run out of signature moves — he has so many, after all — but on this evening in Washington, D.C., far away from where I usually catch them...Read...

Mount Eerie – Wind’s Poem Album Review

Megafaun – Gather, Form & Fly Album Review

Listening to Megafaun for the first time is like seeing a Disney movie on acid… for the first time. There is so much genre jumping, and so much background noise, it would throw the casual listener for a very large loop. Gather, Form, & Fly is Megafaun’s sophomore release, and their first for Portland’s fledgling...Read...

People Who Do Noise (2009) Documentary Film Review

Noise: a genre that is difficult for the average person to appreciate. However, when one sees its creation firsthand or creates it oneself, noise becomes a type of musical art that takes on its own appeal and meaning. In People Who Do Noise, noise becomes associated with faces, through interviews with dozens of Portland noise...Read...
