Exclusive Premiere: Wild Ones “Golden Twin”


Posted by on

Wild Ones gentle pop melodies are a far cry from the gritty guitar-driven sound that put Portland, Or., on the musical map back in the 90s. Their songs are filled with simple melodies, spare synths and sparse drums layered into unconventional pop melodies with lilting, melancholy songs. It’s a winning combination.

Danielle Sullivan’s voice is a genuine one-off. While at first listen her vocal style is reminiscent of both The Cranberries and The Sundays, a closer consideration reveals a voice that come off as warmer and carelessly edgy, luring you in with breezy hooks. The airy, soaring vocals lend themselves to build imposing yet delicate song structures, which the band builds, layer by layer. As enticing as Sullivan’s ethereal vocals are, the band is not just a supporting act for a skilled vocalist. Paired with the compelling vocal hooks, the strong back beat of the band’s music — crafted by Thomas Himes, Clayton Knapp and Andy Parker — drives the melody forward, imbuing the songs with a humanistic warmth that calls to mind the lush sound of Tame Impala as easily as the Cocteau Twins or Lush. The soaring melodies and richly textured layers are simultaneously solidly forward-thinking and imbued with a crystalline prettiness. It’s a wildly seductive sound and their forthcoming LP, “Keep It Safe,” is worth tracking down as soon as it comes out. This band is definitely one to watch.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
