When I caught Big Eyes at Dante's back in February, they played what ended up being one of my favorite sets of the year. The Seattle pop-punk trio delivered a tight and assertive show that immediately propelled their then-upcoming album, Almost Famous, to the top of my most anticipated releases. Singer/guitarist Kate Eldridge, who honed her songwriting in New York with bands Cheeky and Used Kids, has hit her stride since relocating to the West Coast. Almost Famous offers up melodic and heartfelt power-pop gems backed by a snarling confidence that demands your attention. If you haven't gotten to know Portland's Marriage + Cancer yet, you might still be familiar with the music made under their previous name, Nucular Aminals. On "No Sum," Marriage + Cancer continue to conjure up the haunting, moody cyclones of shape-shifting punk rock they've been sharpening for years. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
