New music from local Portland band Reptaliens. The new album is called FM-2030 and it is made up of dreamy psych-pop sounds. The debut album is a wonderful piece of synthesizers and bass lines with breathy vocals. FM-2030 has a kind of sound that could be from the future radio for sure, I really enjoy how all the tracks flow together to make this album. My favorite tracks are “If You Want”, “666bus”, and “Satan’s Song”. The whole album feels almost effortless, just really well put together and it is so nice to listen to. Reptaliens are a great band to see live and to put on the record player. They’ll be playing Holocene on November 1st and the Wonder Ballroom on New Year’s Eve, don’t miss them!
Saturday, October 21st 2017 – Wonder Ballroom
When someone says EDM you might think of full-on 90’s techno glowstick raves but electronic music has come a long way in the decade taking catchy novel samples to the new new level of sophistication. Mr Carmack’s brew of dubstep style EDM and vapewave is highly danceable but modern and space-aged. If you appreciate getting down to some rugged trap but also like to get stoned and chill, this is your band.
Mr. Carmack comes to Portland’s Wonder Ballroom Saturday October 21st as part of Redbull Sound Select. It’s going to be a show with lots of vibes and a little bit of grime. Mija is another vapewave producer who brings the best of the chillstep sounds who will be there also.
On this track “Better” with Vindata you can hear the good stuff that happens when producers like Mija can bring an uplifting mood with bouncy rhythmns combined with playful samples and positive themes. Tracks like these are beautiful works of art and a welcomed subterfuge in today’s complex electronic society. We’re really excited to see what Knox Fortune and Vlad Sepetov have to bring too. See you Saturday Oct 21 at Wonder Ballroom.

Thank you for listening
Here is the playlist for the show. Have a great weekend. Love you.
New music from Richmond, VA band Minor Poet. The new album is called And How!. It is a riveting, beach-rock, summer haze kind of album. The songs are super catchy and well put together. The jangle of the guitar along with the vocals makes for a great combination. Minor Poet has that kind of sound that you can listen to anywhere, but is optimized on a bright, windy/sunny day. And How! is an album that makes the edges of everything a litter brighter and crisper. One of my favorite tracks, “Sudoku, An Enlightment”, is a testament to losing yourself to boredom and procrastination. “Judith Beheading Holofernes” is another favorite of mine, it is super catchy with that guitar rhythm and the vocal pattern. And How! by Minor Poet is not to be missed out on!
Here is the latest Freeform radio episode of the Killing Sasquatch show.
Here is the track listing.
Until next time my friends.
