Sportsday Megaphone, "LA (Copy Remix)," Unreleased

The British accent you hear in this track isn't a put on—it is indeed the natural voice of Sportsday Megaphone's Hugh Frost, who hails from London. He goes it alone when it comes to his high energy and dancey music, but obviously not when it comes to remixes. For "LA" Frost reig...   More

White Rainbow and Jonas Brothers: Burnin' Up the Billboard Charts

Billboard's Hot 100 Chart and Portland experimental music wiz White Rainbow go together like...like...actually I'm at a loss. Until White Rainbow's Adam Forkner embarked on a project that joins the two together in remix bliss, I never really would have thought of it. His UrbanHonking "...   More

Hang the DJ: DJ Anjali

Last, but not least of the Atlas residents to be featured in Hang the DJ is DJ Anjali. In this interview we find out how the trio initially came together (hint: Powell's isn't only good for books, but musical connections as well) among so many other things in relation to the self-proclaimed "danc...   More

Best of the Bulletins: Panther Joins Ratatat Tour, Newspapers Break Up, White Fang Yard Sale, DJ Koolaid in Remix Contest

Southern Belle, Swim Swam Swum, Pony Village, Saturday Aug. 16 on Clinton St.

What house show begins at 7:30 pm on a Saturday night? What Portland shows—house or proper venue—start on time? Well, this house show on Clinton Street seemed an exception to the rule, as the show's flier adamantly stated that a DJ would start at 10 pm. Eh, not so much. I strolled ar...   More

Live Review: The Shaky Hands and Mega*Church @ the Barn, Friday, Aug. 15 (With Tons of Photos!)

Heading into the Shaky Hands and Mega*Church show on Friday night, I'd imagined a barn on Sauvie Island not far from the river, alight with lanterns, the shadows of the performers and audience cast against plywood walls.

If only all my youth weren't locked up in a U-Haul storage unit. If I had access to the boxes of photographs stored there, I could pull out nearly any of my class pictures from Edwards Elementary and point out Ernae Windham to you. Why would that matter in the case of a Hang the DJ post? Well, P...   More

Glass Candy, "Candy Castle," B/E/A/T/B/O/X (Italians Do It Better)

It's all about track number four when it comes to Glass Candy's album B/E/A/T/B/O/X (which recently gleaned an 8.1 rating from Pitchfork). "Candy Castle" is just over five minutes of disco glory that glides along with ease, as gleamy as it is gritty. If the tune's goal is drawing you to the da...   More
