Track of the Day: Honey Owens Believes in Miracles

From the same introverted mind that brought us the warped, bedroom-born soundscapes of Valet comes the latest addition to the psych-tinged revival of '90s-era house music. Portland's Honey Owens heads up her new project, dubbed The Miracles Club, effectively adding another page to her storied music career. Today, The Miracles Club offered up a free download of the title-track from its brand new EP, Light of Love.

In the vein of artists like Pictureplane, The Juan Maclean, Telepathe, and fellow Portland natives Glass Candy, The Miracles Club sound intrigued by straightforward dance beats, squelching bass synths, thick electronic atmospheres, and reverb-laden vocals on "Light of Love." The song is an epic--as any proper house single should be--at six-and-a-half minutes, and traverses the kind of peaks and valleys you'd hope a solid dancefloor anthem would. It's strange to hear Owens reinvent herself as a soft-spoken dancefloor diva, given her experimental rock-focused past with Jackie-O Motherfucker, World, and Nudge. And yet this foray into dance music not only suits her well, but could also be her most readily-accessible project to date.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
