Eighteen Individual Eyes. Eighteen Individual Eyes play darkly sensual musique noir, their first album Unnovae Nights an intoxicating, trembling journey through rock’s primal subconscious. It’s a narcotic dazzle, a beautiful alternate world in shadows, addictive relations at its beating heart. The songs are as lyrically meaningful and layered as the music created for them."

The video for “Terracur” begins with a man in a group and follows him as he begins to isolate himself from everything he has known.

This is the title track off of 101 Crustaceans' upcoming album. There is something really nice about the word "crustacean." It could remind a person of either a refreshing day at the beach, kicking up piss clams, OR, some sort of scabby flesh disease. Either way, it leaves you with a lot to think about, same as this song." Listen now over on VICE.

Alameda, the self-described "chamber-folk collective," is a fine example of exactly these things. Their newest release, Procession, takes both the "chamber" and the "folk" to heart. The string work by cellist Jessie Dettwiler is nuanced and grounded, lending an element of continuity throughout the album that exemplifies the soulful restraint that is Alameda's hallmark. Stirling Myles' vocal work fits perfectly in to the album's humanistic ethos, and his finger picking ensures that the music never becomes too precious, rooting firmly in the "folk" element that propels each track." Pick up the latest issue of Eleven PDX out now.
