A Double Shot of Portugal. The Man at Terminal 5 This Week

June 5th, 2017

Next week, Portugal. The ManJohn Gourley (guitar and vocals), Zachary Carothers (bass and vocals), Kyle O’Quin (guitar, keys and vocals), Eric Howk (guitar) and Jason Sechrist (drums)—will release their newest album, Woodstock, which features, among others, Richie Havens, Son Little and Fargo’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It’s the band’s eighth long-player, but their first in more than four years. And while four years might not feel like too long, in Portugal. The Man years, it’s close to a geological epoch. With the lead single, “Feel It Still” (above, performed live on KEXP FM), already making waves—its soulful psych-pop working it to the top of the alt-rock charts and its politically charged video drawing the ire of certain media types—the anticipation for Woodstock is high. New York City will get an extra-special preview of songs new and old when Portugal. The Man stop by for two appearances at Terminal 5 this week, tomorrow and Wednesday. (L.A. duo Electric Guest and the Bronx’s own Kemba open each night.) PTM shows are always don’t-miss affairs, combining sing-along hooks, dense, Pink Floyd-ian space-outs and usually a surprise or two. So do yourself a favor: Don’t miss. —A. Stein | @Neddyo

The Growlers’ Spring Tour Comes Through Terminal on Saturday

May 18th, 2017

Shake me up, shake me down: Try to define the Growlers’ sound and multiple genres will come to mind, which is exactly what makes them so special. Their sonic melting pot ranges from psychedelic rock to indie pop and from surf rock to beach Goth, all while Brooks Nielsen’s distinctive raspy voice croons about love, life and everyday hardships. Over the course of more than a decade, the Dana Point, Calif., band has released numerous well-received singles, EPs and albums, including last year’s City Club (stream it below), which AllMusic dubbed their “most immediate and accessible collection of songs to date.” Plus, they’ve toured with renowned acts like the Black Keys, Julian Casablancas and Devendra Banhart. The Growlers (above, doing “I’ll Be Around” live in studio for KEXP FM) have gone through a transformation with City Club—produced by Casablancas and Shawn Everett (best known for working with Alabama Shakes and Weezer)—making their sound more concise, with upbeat tempos and perhaps a dose of New York City attitude added to their sunny, laid-back California vibes. Now in fine mid-tour form, the Growlers play Terminal 5 on Saturday night. —Karen Silva | @ClassicKaren

Bonobo Dazzles a Sold-Out Terminal 5 with Wide-Ranging Sounds

May 1st, 2017

Bonobo – Terminal 5 – April 28, 2017

(Photo: Dan Rickershauser)

Simon Green, better known as Bonobo, has always dealt in big sounds. His musical universe seems to expand with each new release, and it now includes full string sections, brass sections, guest vocalists, even guest entire other bands. So how do you tour to meet the demands of such a maximalist sound? (Even the Beatles gave up on touring for Sgt. Pepper’s.) The answer is you bring everyone along for the journey.

Friday’s show—Bonobo’s second sold-out appearance at Terminal 5—featured a stage full of widely talented musicians, all finding a home in Bonobo’s world. Szjerdene’s soulful voice smoothed out the electric arpeggios of “Towers.” Nick Murphy, the artist formerly known as Chet Faker, made an appearance to sing “No Reason,” his reverb-y vocals carrying through the cavernous venue. The sound mix was perfectly layered with the many rich textures of Bonobo’s sound, not an easy feat on a stage filled with as many as 11 musicians playing at the same time.

The swirling string orchestrations of “Kiara” were loud enough to drive the song. The bass never managed to drown out a flute part, the brass band cut through electronic haze like the stage lights through the smoke-filled venue. Grey Reverend mellowed the night for the slow-building burn of “First Fires” before the Morroccan band Innov Gnawa came out to kick off “Bambro Koyo Ganda” with their harmonizing chants. The set ended with the frantic “Kerala,” followed by an encore that included the infectious polyrhythms of “Know You.” —Dan Rickershauser | @D4nRicks

Ahead of New Album Café Tacvba Come to Terminal 5 Tomorrow Night

April 19th, 2017

Rubén Albarrán (vocals and guitar), Emmanuel del Real (keys, guitar and vocals), Enrique Rangel (bass) and Joselo Rangel (guitar and vocals) have been doing their own unique take on alternative rock en Español since forming Café Tacvba more than 25 years ago in Mexico City. Deftly mixing Mexican folk, punk, electronic music and Latin rock, the quartet has won over fans across the world. Their most recent studio album, the well-received El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco (stream it below), came out in 2012. But with Jei Beibi due to arrive in just a few weeks, Café Tacvba (above, performing “Aprovéchate”) play Terminal 5 tomorrow night. Brooklyn’s Buscabulla open the show.

Moderat Bring Acclaimed Live Show to Terminal 5 Tomorrow Night

April 18th, 2017

Approaching a decade ago, Sascha Ring—who was making ambient, dreamy soundscapes as Apparat—teamed up with Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary—already known for their rambunctious, genre-spanning techno music as Modeselektor—to form the Berlin experimental-techno trio Moderat (above, doing “Bad Kingdom” live in concert on Pitchfork TV). They’ve released a host of EPs alongside three full-lengths, including last year’s aptly titled III (stream it below). “The rich subtlety of its sound design demands repeated plays. Each time the album reveals something new. III is an album that worms its way into your day-to-day life. It’s an album that grows each time you listen to it. It’s an album than sounds different, and feels different, with each subsequent play,” gushed Clash. “III is a triumph that takes pop and redefines it, and may come to be seen as a watershed moment for the group as they hit full stride.” Another aptly titled release, the live recording Live (stream it below), arrived later in 2016. PopMatters lavished the album with praise, but added that “Live cuts out a crucial part of the Moderat live experience: the visuals. The light show and films that feature in Moderat’s concerts are essential.” Fortunately, you can get the entire experience when Moderat play Terminal 5 tomorrow night. Multimedia artist Dominick Fernow’s Vatican Shadow opens the show.

Extend the Weekend with Gucci Mane at Terminal 5 on Sunday Night

April 6th, 2017

Dirty South rapper Gucci Mane burst into the mainstream more than a decade ago out of Atlanta. He’s since become known for his raw talent, speaking his mind and doing work: Last year alone, he released Everybody Looking (stream it below)—with guest appearances by Drake, Kanye West and Young Thug—followed by Woptober (stream it below)—with cameos by Rick Ross and Young Dolph—and then The Return of East Atlanta Santa (stream it below)—which features Travis Scott and Drake again—shortly before the end of 2016. And with all of that new material, Gucci Mane (above, performing “Last Time” with Travis Scott on Jimmy Kimmel Live!) is out on the road touring the country, which brings him to Terminal 5 on Sunday night. Chicago MC Dreezy opens the show.
