Live Blog: Project Pabst 2015

Project Pabst 2015 South Waterfront District; Portland, OR [July 2015] by Kirsten Pardun on 07-29-2015 What do you get when you put a bunch of pasty Portlanders in a gravel field, with 100 degree weather, and no seating?

Dialect soundtracks our industrial dystopia with upcoming release on 1080p

I agree, the existence of so-called “fresh air” is superfluous in the company of engaging aromas wafting onshore from polluted urban runoff, because at least the latter has the capacity to non-verbally tell me what I want for dinner on any given night. Show More Summary

? Listen: L’Orange & Kool Keith - Time? Astonishing!

Imagine, if you would, that the being known as Kool Keith was not after all a human named Keith Matthew Thornton who was born sometime during the latter half of the 20th century, but actually an interdimensional traveler’s offspringShow More Summary

Mild High Club prep debut album while reviewers look up synonyms for “woozy”

? Listen: Soulja Boy - “High School”

For all those enchanted with the psychedelic street realness of Sicko Mobb, Soulja Boy’s “High School” offers an ominous take on this not-quite-yet-an-actual-subgenre of hip-hop. The overall effect is like a threatening take on Sinatra’s “It Was A Very Good Year,” walking through each grade of Soulja Boy’s high school career. Show More Summary

? Listen: Night Beds - “[9-6] slack-jaw”

Beautification in the studio. Stems of yellow wildflowers weave with cables. They run along willy-nilly: touching walls; not touching walls. Yellow wildflowers grow up from their microphones, turning their heads and looking at no one in particular. Show More Summary

Watch: Delofi - Delofi Teaser Mix [Preview Video]

Nobody “gets” jazz. There’s not enough soul to save the world. Funk found fire and fried. R&B adopted robots. Where do we go from here? Re-appropriation. This is a generation ritalin’d with anxiety. Minds are just racing through zones, uncharted. Show More Summary

Back To The Future soundtrack to see anachronistic vinyl release — you know, in celebration of the future?

? Listen: Little Howlin’ Wolf - “Tears Were Fallin’ Down Her Face”

Pub crawl into technicolor carcass. We’re gonna use up this carcass, most of it at least. We’ll leave a thimbleful for the mole. Dial up the red. Road lessons. Both lanes open. Milk bathe the carcass, give it a teat, like the one you’d give the mako shark. Show More Summary
