The Prids
Do I Look Like I’m In Love?, the new full-length from The Prids, illustrates the Portland dark pop band’s mettle through keen lyrical observations, but also in its attention to sonic detail and song craft—this record couldn’t have been made by any other band at any other time. “Do I Look Like I’m In Love?” and “The Shape” both swirl and build like dreams filled with grey skies and the flickering faces of past friends and lovers. These songs nudge up against the air-brushed punk of “Lie Here” and the bass-driven “Colliding,” which recalls the dazed jangle of early R.E.M. More than two decades in, The Prids have made the best and most cohesive album of their career.

The
fact that there’s even a new Prids record is a miracle. In March of 2015 bassist-vocalist Mistina La Fave suffered a brain hemorrhage the night before the band was scheduled to enter the studio. The recovery was physically and mentally taxing, and La Fave is lucky to be alive, let alone playing and performing again. The Prids’ 22 years have been marked with death, sickness, divorce, and a near-fatal van crash that cut a tour short and left members bloody and broken—but they survive through the friendship and bond of founding members La Fave and guitarist-vocalist David Frederickson. While those events have invariably made their way into the band’s narrative, the two simply chalk it up to life.


SUN ATOMS
Peter Holmström of The Dandy Warhols produced and plays bass in this buzzing new Portland supergroup, Sun Atoms, fronted by veteran artist Jsun Atoms (The Upsidedown, Daydream Machine, Pete International Airport). The band “fuses styles and sounds like a long lost Basquiat painting found deep in space among comets and stars.” - Maximum Volume, and Vegan Brooklyn says their debut album Let There Be Light, “is a tripped out opus packed with droning electronics, shimmering guitars, dayglo melodies and a deep, whispered delivery, mixed by Smiths/Blur producer Stephen Street, and featuring Alex Maas of The Black Angels.”
