This Week's Mercury Music Section

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Thu, May 26, 2011 at 7:20 AM

The Undertones
  • The Undertones

Another week, another Mercury music section to ignore while you look at Kurt Cobain's 1986 mugshot. Those Aberdeen po-po ain't nothing to trifle with.

John Peel dies, goes to heaven, makes mixtapes for Jesus, wrestles Macho Man Randy Savage in the clouds, and then forces the Undertones to play Portland for the first time ever.
LISTEN:

The Undertones - "Get Over You"

Indie supergroup Gayngs (now with 100% less Bon Iver) rolls through town to serenade us with their panty-dropping slow jams.
LISTEN:

Gayngs - "The Gaudy Side Of Town"

Animal Farm are four emcees with one unified goal—keep Portland hiphop on the map.
LISTEN:

Animal Farm - "Test of Time" (featuring Talib Kweli)

If it's too loud you're too old... actually, it's just too loud. Sleigh Bells replace sound quality with volume quantity.
LISTEN:

Sleigh Bells - "Tell 'Em"
