Sinkane with The Kominas

SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, Portland, United States     Music

Sinkane music -- every note of it -- comes straight out of a generosity of spirit. Never has that spirit been on more vivid display than on the uplifting new album Life & Livin' It. This is feel-good music for trying times, celebrating what makes life good without ignoring what makes it hard. By the time they finished touring for their acclaimed Mean Love album in late 2015, Ahmed Gallab and the band had spread the gospel of Sinkane to the world, playing 166 shows in 20 countries. During the same period, he had also led The Atomic Bomb Band -- the highly celebrated 15-piece outfit that played...




Forêt Endormie with Obsidian Tongue, Aerial Ruin, and Dwell in Moonblood

SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, Portland, United States     Music

Forêt Endormie is the genre-melding chamber ensemble led by guitarist and composer Jordan Guerette, known widely for his work with American black metal luminaries Falls of Rauros. Formed in 2016 in the "Forest City" of Portland, Maine, Forêt Endormie draws as much from the forms and fantasies of 20th century French composers Erik Satie and Olivier Messiaen, as they do the melancholic Neo-folk of Tenhi and Sol Invcitus and heavy minimalism of drone pioneers Earth. Their debut record Étire dans le ciel vide (French for "stretch into the empty sky") finds the band deep in a singular sonic wo...




Frank Carlberg & OurBigBand: Monk Dreams, Hallucinations, & Nightmares

SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, Portland, United States     Music

Monk Dreams, Hallucinations, & Nightmares, the new large ensemble project from Frank Carlberg, draws its inspiration from the luminous work of Thelonious Monk. The pieces generate their shapes from splinters, cells and feelings found in and around Monk's music, as well as from his verbal utterances, advice and cryptic observations. The record is not a tribute album, but rather a meditation on the profundity of Monk and a celebration of his immeasurable influence. The Helsinki-born, NYC-based pianist and composer Frank Carlberg has become well-known to Maine audiences over the last few decade...

Jonwayne Rap Album Two Tour with Danny Watts, EMV, and Lyokha

SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, Portland, United States     Music

Jonwayne came onto the Los Angeles music scene by way of the east Los Angeles club Low End Theory circa 2008-09, then emerging as the epicenter of a new generation of hip-hop beat makers: Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, Nosaj Thing, Kutmah, Daedelus. Fresh out of high school, Jonwayne jumped in with homemade rap mixtapes and immersed himself in the scene. "It felt like a golden age," he says, "it was very inspiring." He first became known as a producer, releasing the instrumental album Bowser (2011) – but it was his over-sized skill on the mic that caught the attention of Stones Throw's Peanu...

And The Kids with Kalbells and Hammydown

SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, Portland, United States     Music

Growing up, often the safest haven to plot your dreams and get a handle on your identity is within the confines of trusted friendships. For the musicians in the critically acclaimed band And The Kids, these bonds have been a life raft. But as friendships evolve from adolescence to young adulthood, sometimes the lines between friends, lovers and all that comes in between can grow murky. On the Northampton, MA-based band’s latest, Friends Share Lovers, And The Kids examines blurred boundaries in close-knit relationships. “The friends we grew up with were troublemakers, lost souls, dropo...

Dan Deacon with Friend Roulette

SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, Portland, United States     Music

With the success of Dan Deacon’s 2007 album Spiderman of the Rings, came an opportunity for the electronic-music iconoclast to increase the breadth and depth of his entire musical project. Deacon moved from self-contained computer music to orchestral epics. His interactive live show, honed in DIY spaces, was taken to museums and concert halls. He frequently expanded his performances to include a horde of side musicians. Gliss Riffer, an entirely self-produced record of almost all electronic sounds, is a return to Deacon’s Spiderman of the Rings-era process. He calls it “easily the most f...
