There are an extra-ordinary number of local bands playing release shows in Portland this week. One that might fly under the radar is LiquidLight, a quartet that's just released its new EP, Reactionary. LiquidLight is Anthony Medici, Cory West, Zackary Rodrigues, and Joseph Arnstein, and together the four men create a mesh of gentle psych, strummy indie-rock, and buzzy pop music that aims for the sugary universe inhabited by bands like Sloan, Superchunk, Zumpano, and Guided by Voices. Each of the six songs on Reactionary is catchy, but two are worth noting: "Nothing Is Real" for its airy, elongated chorus that effortlessly shimmers and glides, and "Temporary Minds," a snappier power-pop number you'll be involuntarily humming in your head long after it's over. Both are great; more importantly, they hint at a band with tremendous potential as a pop-rock powerhouse. Put 'em on your radar now, before they're on everyone else's. BEN SALMON
