Federale, Point Juncture WA, The Shivas 

When: Fri., Nov. 30, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10
Inspired by the slow-burning, low-desert imagery of Ennio Morricone's vast catalog, Portland's Federale have taken the tenets of the spaghetti-western soundtrack to even more rambling heights. Their brand-new third album, The Blood Flowed Like Wine, slithers like a Mojave rattlesnake through dark, deeply textured cuts of western epics, vaudevillian vignettes, and some eerily Victorian-sounding psychedelia. Guest appearances abound, including vocal contributions from Alex Maas of the Black Angels and KP Thomas of Spindrift. In addition, a whole slew of new instrumentation has been added to the already bloated spectacle of the band's live setup, with French horns, oboe, and flute making time between the lines. Spooky? Yes. Worth being spooked out a little bit by? Definitely. RYAN J. PRADO
