under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

The Portland Arms welcomes young Indie-Rock group, The 55 for their 2018 Christmas show.  For this performance, they’ll be playing a mix of their unique versions of some well known tunes, as well as debuting a handful of original new material.  If you like indie-rock, with a trumpet (and who doesn’t?), you’d better check these boys out.  Cambridge rock-royalty, Keith’s Shed return to The Portland to show these youngsters how it should be done, and support comes from the brilliant 24 Valve, so get here early.

It’s time for Green Mind’s annual indie rock christmas party!

This year’s headliner is Lemondaze who’ve been our favourite new local band by far. Pushing all our musical buttons they take the best of 90s shoegaze and twist it into new energetic shapes. For fans of My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Dinosaur Jr and more.

Maud are a sparser affair, with chorus drenched guitar and spindly bass, bringing to mind Warpaint, The XX and more.

Green Mind presents LIELA MOSS

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

My Name Is Safe in Your Mouth more than lives up to Moss’s promise of fresh, bold adventure. Sonically spare yet sumptuous in its emotions, elemental power and expansive melodies, the record is a richly felt, vividly realised trip into the interior from the Duke Spirit singer. A serene-to-stormy series of deep dream-pop meditations on devotion and selfhood, creativity and parenthood, it treats unknown territory not as something to fear but as a seed-bed of possibility.

Green Mind presents ESTRONS
Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

On very rare occasions, from the most destructive of places, beauty can emerge. Ever since singer Tali Källström and guitarist Rhodri Daniel met as “two strangers with disparate tastes and influences,” the two have been carving out a body of work that resembles an essence of chaos and beauty; a feeling of estrangement, an expression of morbid elegance, inspired by opposing sides. The funny thing about opposites, is they need each other in order to exist – one wouldn’t be what it is without the other.

From this place of tension, Estrons found their debut album. Ultimately, the bind that ties them is their love of creating fresh, exhilarating music, and with ​You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough​, they’ve done just that.Beginning as an experiment, Estrons quickly became significantly more important than intended. They are simply aforce that cannot be forced.

With its off-kilter rhythms, angular guitar work and clashing atmospherics, the album is both arresting and thrillingly disorienting – a fitting sound for a band of “highly driven, frustrated, volatile people.”#

Vocals and instrumentals collide together throughout, creating a wild, beautiful noise – likely mirroring the self-confessed love/hate relationship between Rhodri and Tali, tied together by bassist, and long running producer,Steffan Pringle, whom they eventually convinced to join them. Despite the odds, they have captured a sound of their own. Estrons’ music “can be off-putting at first glance,” says Rhodri. “It’s only when you make your way through it that you get it. I have no time for music that doesn’t leave some sort of a mark.” And nor, evidently, does he make it.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Best known as one of several guitar players, songwriters, and vocalists in the Hoosier indie-rock band Hoops, Krauter has been making music all by his lonesome for much longer. He grew up in a family heavily involved in local musical theater, even appearing in three productions of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

He played in high school bands, but didn’t get serious about writing and recording until he enrolled at Ball State in Muncie, Indiana. His first efforts – recorded in his dorm room — weren’t intended for any kind of audience, but a friend asked him to record a few tracks for a class project. Eventually those sessions became 2015’s Magnolia EP, a short collection of gentle, gauzy songs that reveal his early obsession with one of his first musical heroes, Vashti Bunyan.

It was his first taste of the music business, and the experience left a huge impression. I’d never put any music out under my name. I’d never put out a tape before. It all came together quickly.Krauter began recording and releasing music prolifically, first with Hoops and then on his own. The ChangesEP, released in late 2016, showcases his deft guitar playing, mixing soul-baring songwriting with bossa nova rhythms and intimately lo-fi production. It was supposed to be a low-key release, but Changes became a word-of-mouth hit that amassed a small but avid cult behindit. I didn’t think it was going to make any huge waves for me, but a lot of people told me they were still listening to it a year or more later. They were living with it, and I thought that was cool.
