Mordecai

Mordecai is getting ready to embark on a European tour that’ll last through the end of November. That’s some serious traveling! But before they leave town, the Portland pop trio’s celebrating the release of their new album, It’s Never Enough, with a show at Holocene. Founded by Andrew Endres (lap steel/bass) and Kate Kilbourne (violin/synth), with Nick Quiller on drums, the band takes an unconventional path to modern pop/R&B, building a typical beats-and-synth soundscape (with Endres singing his heart out) and periodically incorporating oddly effective melodic lines using lap steel guitar and violin. Add it all up and you get futuristic robo-pop streaked with hints of neo-classical and roots music, like a landlocked (and less shy) Frank Ocean. Bottom line: Mordecai is different, and different is good. See ’em tonight, before they’re gone ’til December. BEN SALMON
