Get hardcore for the cause

When it comes to Portland's underground hardcore scene, the kids turn out, turn up and get rowdy. All in good fun, though. Our punky paradise, Black Water, will be staging the likes of Young Turks, Unrestrained, Raw Nerves, Frontflip, and a yet to be announced band for the sake of a good cause. On top of being a great excuse to circle pit, the show on Saturday, December 12th is doubling as an adoption fundraiser to help a local family expand. 

Tickets are $10 and the shows at 8pm. Click the link above to learn more about the cause and see how you can help bring that little boy to his new home!

Boston rock quartet Courage Cloak plays O'Brien's Pub in Allston, MA on 12.9

Last week, Boston quartet Courage Cloak released "Danse Macabre" (streaming below), the blistering third song off its forthcoming seven-track album. Starting with plaintive drums that quickly give way to guttural vocals and chugging basslines, the metal-girded cut emits a surprising sweetness despite its sonic and thematic heaviness. The fittingly-titled song does, in fact, mine such grave ideas as ultimate doom but, perhaps unlike straight metal tracks, lets in at least a little hope for redemption. Courage Cloak plays at O'Brien's Pub in Allston, MA on 12.9. - Zach Weg

Experimental singer/songwriter BERU released nostalgic EP “Adult Emotions”

Like the sound explorers Keiji Haino and Vashti Bunyan, Jessica Nicole Collins has channeled complex moods through BERU's stream-of-consciousness applique since her 2006 year-end single "Spaces In Time". Her live engineered sound collages would completely envelop venues and listeners, emanating existential themes and affectations of world-weariness. But her newest EP “Adult Emotions” is different.

“For this EP, I wanted to make music with sounds that I've loved since I was a child.”

Just as the title suggests, BERU’s newest collection is mature in conception: dense and measured, wistful and purgative. But the songs are also an eidetic recollection of innocence in the eye of loss.

“One of my best friends passed away last year, and I needed to set my emotions to music from a time before I knew pain like this. I have to sing about my loss, so I can look at it from the outside and try and understand it.”

She tags the release with descriptors like “island goth”, “smooth rock”, “newage”, and “doom metal”, and rightfully so — these influences, and more, are abound in each of the six songs. Collins recites ‘90s adolescence by memory, from Yucatan pan flutes, Miami Vice, “the chillest of beats Enigma used,” and Bryan Adams’ suave guitar-lead auras.

BERU’s EP “Adult Emotions” is available now, free to stream on Bandcamp. Her next performance will be on December 5th, to help celebrate the sophomore album release of Los Angeles’ synthpop/goth trio Ghost Noise at Non Plus Ultra.
