Robin Bacior, Harlowe, Lorain
Robin Bacior's songs come at you like a Viking ship sliding through a foggy dawn toward the light. Creating movement with her simple yet ballet-like piano, and accentuated by simple orchestral elements, singer/songwriter (and Mercury contributor) Bacior sets the pace in these quieter and fiery moments. Then she draws the listener back with soothing and reassuring vocals. JENI WREN STOTTRUP

Floating Room, Mini Blinds, No Aloha
Floating Room is one of Portland’s best bands, hands down, no questions asked. Their 2016 debut, Sunless, deserves to be more than just heard—it deserves to be felt. The passion and warmth they pour into their live performances is palpable, and enables audiences to really feel their music. It’s hard to bring shoegaze to life, but Floating Room does so time and time again at their shows. DELANEY MOTTER
