(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Brothers Ryan and Jeffery Burian came up to Portland from California calling themselves Real Diamond, but they soon changed their moniker to BÉisbol. Under either name, the pair make festive, fragrant tropical pop that's stacked high with the Burians' harmonizing vocals. In advance of their forthcoming debut album Lo-fi Cocaine—currently being recorded at Beau Raymond's Family Farm studio in Lake Oswego—the duo released a digital EP at the end of last year, and tonight sees the release of two of those tracks on 7-inch vinyl. A-side "Sunlight, Am I Fine?" is a perfect introduction to BÉisbol's warm, sunny vibe, and a reminder—if the recent weather hasn't been enough—that winter never lasts forever. NED LANNAMANN
