Shoeshine Blue, Huck Notari, St. Even 

When: Fri., July 20, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8
For several years now, Michael Apinyakul has been delivering low-key, affectionate folk around town under the Shoeshine Blue moniker, and he's just finished a new EP of gentle twang with the help of some Portland compadres. Tell Yourself It's Only the Weather bundles together five of Apinyakul's early-morning melodies, which he recorded at home without much tracking or overdubbing. The homespun care is clearly evident, and a close listen on headphones puts you right in the room where the songs were laid down. Shoeshine Blue has been quietly, reliably providing amiable folk just beneath Portland's radar; with tonight's release of Tell Yourself It's Only the Weather, some much-deserved light will shine on an overlooked local talent.
