The two dream whorls on Portland band Appendixes' new 7-inch are a study in contrasts: A-side "Four Leaf Clover" is a minor-key funeral procession, as stinging guitar notes pierce a cloudy veil before getting buried in a nebula of sound. Meanwhile, the major-key B-side and title track, "Neon Green Fear," is an absolute tsunami of beauty, like a sunset that shifts into various staggering arrangements of color, even as you can't actually see the changes occur. Appendixes celebrate the 7-inch's release with Seattle's Comettes, who have a glorious two-song release of their own: The Golden Blue EP is a tranquilly thumping potbelly stove of heartwarming melody, as guitars and one-two drumbeats wrap themselves around your ears like a knit cap. Industrial Park, meanwhile, are playing their last Portland show for the time being, as their drummer Nick Makanna is moving to the Bay Area later this month—catch them while you can. NED LANNAMANN
