The 2019 Portland's Folk Festival

This weekend Portland’s Folk Festival will be taking place at McMenamins’ Mission Theater and Pub. The festival, which was put together by duo Fox and Bones, has set up a talented lineup. It has the best folk and Americana the PNW has to offer. Fox and Bones’ recently released their sophomore EP Better Land, and if you stop by on Saturday at 9:30, you’ll get the chance to hear what critics have been describing as “exceptional, and impossible not to love.”
 
 
Fox and Bones’ weren’t working alone on this years showcase. In a statement, they explained “Our main focus is on community building and have organized this event as a profit share between the artists. We believe the stronger your local community is, the more you can accomplish!” Such teamwork happened this year as Portland’s Folk Festival was created in conjunction with Vortex Music Magazine and Rola Music. This also means that every act there is one to keep an eye on. The Parson Redheads will be headlining Friday night, and Worth be the final act of the festival on Saturday. Not to mention both days promise a surprise “Secret Guest,” amping up the excitement for each night. You can find more information about the lineup here, or check out the festival’s Facebook page here.

Cry Babe: "Johnny"

This upcoming Valentines Day, Cry Babe is releasing their EP Be Cool. Until you can hear the full thing, you can listen to the pre-released song “Johnny.” Do you remember the pointless car rides you and your friends would go on when you first started driving? Anxious and impatient, going 10 miles above the speed limit with the wind whipping your face and the setting sun gracing your brow. This is the emotion at the heart of “Johnny.” It’s clever because the song isn’t about being wild for the sake of it. It’s about being impulsive because you’re more afraid of what will happen if you don’t get in that car. Vocalist Anaïs Genevieve combines the anger and ethereality in her voice into something radically new. She sings with a style that I’m tempted to deem operatic punk. Her wild shrieks make Janet from Rocky Horror look tame in comparison. In “Johnny” she becomes both the devil and the angel on your shoulder. If you don’t find yourself thrashing and twirling around while “Johnny” is playing, you’re doing something wrong.

Cry Babe's release show will be on Thursday, February 14th at the High Water Mark Lounge. Mr. Wrong and Sea Moss will also be playing. You can find out more information here

Teulu

Teulu’s music is a soft place to lay your head at night. It’s quietly but powerfully hopeful, the sort of music we need to get by in today’s world. “For The Learner” has a damp, earthy feel to it. It’s similar to the sensation of digging your fingers through damp grass, or the taste of a sweet, yet tannic tea. The soft, lilting tones take you gently by the hand and lead you into the best scenery the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Each song infuses the listener with the gentle gray skies we wake up to most days. It's hard to capture the beauty of sunshine melting into cloudy skies, but Teulu does a wonderful job.

Bryson Cone: "Destination Nightmare"

Bryson Cone dropped his song “Destination Nightmare,” and it’s every bit as dreamy and jazzy as it sounds. This song takes you waltzing on the moon while a full band, complete with holographic keytars, plays in the background. The distortion of Cone’s voice is romantic and dreamy, but also has some more serious notes. He keeps the track, and thus the audience, focused. This in turn allows for a fuller appreciation of the song’s artistry. It is an intricately layered song, which makes sense given Cone’s background in mixed media and sound collage. Cone’s talent is made perfectly clear with “Destination Nightmare.” We can’t wait to see where he heads next.
