Dresses – “Catch”

Thursdays are good for dreaming about the weekend. For dreaming about outfits and crushes. And how to maximize ones impact on the other. For inspiration, go out and run your hands through the grass and feel the sun on your neck. Summer isn’t over yet.  Read more

Wild Ones – “Dim the Lights””

Portland’s Wild Ones are back with a little thunderstorm of a jam that is not to be casually dismissed as you leave your laundry drying in the back yard. Tender oooohs drift over the hills, providing some soothing shade, but soon the sky opens with a cymbal crash and things turn delightfully tumultuous. The forecast calls for an 80% chance of shuttered windows and moody dance moves.  Read more

Karl Kling – “Careful”

Sounds like… Karl Kling is aiming for a big 2015 and we can’t blame the guy. Those awesomely warm sounding synths slip and bounce under his hushed voice. The perfect soundtrack for easing yourself into the sunlight for some vitamin D.

Location: Portland, OR

Future: Sample some more of his just released debut album at Soundcloud.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Multi-Love””

Sounds like … you fell asleep listening to that old AM radio and in your dank dream haze find yourself slo-mo jumping from branch to branch in the psychedelic forest of your mind.

Location: Portland, OR

Future: “Multi-Love” is from THE ALBUM ‘Multi-Love’ out May 26th, 2015 on Jagjaguwar.

Typhoon – “Prosthetic Love”

Music for… sitting down and closing your eyes. Soaking in the subtle sounds and beautiful lyrics of Typhoon. The band is no slouch with their storytelling, and this fan has taken lyric analysis to the next level.

Location: Portland, OR

Future: Go watch the Veronica Mars movie and enjoy this song’s placement in a rather romantic scene. Also, the gorgeous new video below.

Karl Kling – “I Will Wait”

Music for… slo-mo daydreaming through the clouds and among the elastic creatures you find up there who are dancing and jiggling so subtly you aren’t sure if its them or the shimmer of the sunset behind you.

Location: Portland, OR

Future: More goodness like this I hope.

The Magician “Sunlight” feat. Years & Years

If you’re not following The Magician on Soundcloud, you’re missing a raucous and hairy good time. He puts all his housest shit together in his Magic Tape collections that make you throw your hands up out of a convertible and scream at passing cars “Take YOUR top off”.


He brings the dear sweet vocals of Years & Years’ Olly for this tune about summatime and lovin life, ETC.



Grace Mitchell – “Broken Over You”

Music for… people who look into the eyes of Grace Mitchell and see something a bit unhinged. And also relate closely. The minimal production of keys and synths on this slow burn jam lets Mitchell’s gorgeous voice float really sink in.

Location: Portland, OR

Future: She just dropped “Your Design” today so I’m hoping more are on the way.
