Belgian electronic producer Sickboy (the artist who brought such breakcore classics such as "Ganja Bullet" and "Worst Trade Center") returns with Jurassickboys, an amusement-park ride through pop culture's destruction. Released on Portland's own Fukdup Records. 

On translucent yellow vinyl with red and black splatters. Listen on Bandcamp.

A split between Montreal-based composer Kyle Bobby Dunn and Indianapolis-based guitarist Wayne Robert Thomas. One side of swirling modern classical drone, a drunk orchestra, distant trumpets like migrating birds. And one side of cinematic builds, layers of strings, crests and breaks.

Tucker Theodore's debut, To Make the Sun Hurt, established a cultish following for the reclusive Olympia songwriter and soundscape artist. On his latest, 2017's Lady Hope, he takes his sound experiments even further. A psych-folk epic, Lady Hope is a wild hour-long ride through inner darkness and personal mythology.

With appearances from Allen Karpinski (The Six Parts Seven) and Madeline Johnston (Sister Grotto, Midwife).

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

"Tucker Theodore’s Lady Hope is such a profit. It resides in a monastery high on a mountain top, its caterwaul descending among the ruins of past civilizations. It cascades within the deafening rock slide that brings its wisdom down to the massive." - Tiny Mix Tapes' Cerberus

Tucker Theodore- Skin

Corespondents’ fourth album, Land of the Low People, is an album that exists both as a relic of the past and as a time capsule for the future. It's an album of familiar yet disconcerting melodies that draw inspiration from the Wild West and the Far East in equal measure. It defies genre, place, and time.

It's also the catchiest instrumental album I have ever heard. A perfect soundtrack to any situation or occasion. Beautiful, menacing, celebratory, and completely unlike any other music getting made today.

Like Like, by Portland's Advrb, is an album in ten vignettes. Relationships, almost relationships, last frost walks, A.A. Milne recitations. Lyric-driven jangle pop in the lineage of Jonathan Richman, Jason Anderson, and Eleanor Friedberger.

Released on Antiquated Future Records. Listen on Bandcamp.

"On his latest tape, Like Like, Barton offers a love letter to youthful indiscretions and wide-eyed romance...And it’s within these various levels of commitment that we witness the full extent of his musical aptitude, with complex musical associations and memories vying for control of our hearts and minds." - The Tape Deck

Advrb- Frenzied Spring

An LP of one of the most adored living poets. Alice Notley pushes boundaries, and it's an absolute joy to hear her reading her work.

Listen on Soundcloud.
