Sense and Quirky Sensibility: Yacht Tonight at Neumos

Portland has become one of the country’s hotbeds of new, interesting and innovative music. Tonight, one of Portland’s finest electro art-pop bands is swinging by Neumos to bring quirky, danceable electronic tunes to Seattle.

Yacht is a hifi duo that combines 80’s inspired synth with sci-fi loops and vocal effects. The result is a modern day experimental synthpop band akin to earlier MGMT. Their music is light and fun, and a perfect way to celebrate a glimpse of sunshine here in the PacNW.

And Now for Something Different: Mt. Eerie at Good Shepherd

Anacortes’ Phil Elverum of The Microphones has been working hand under his solo pseudonym, Mt. Eerie. His solo work is melodic, haunting and well, eerie. His vocals, alternately creepily whispering and desperately screeching, are a nice contrast to the heavy, rhythmic bass lines and unpolished acoustic guitarwork.

Tonight, Mt. Eerie is headling the Occultural Music Festival happening at the Chapel at the Good Shepherd Center in Seattle. He’ll be joined by Novemthree, and Paintings for Animals and Noisepoetnobody.
