LASKA (mpls) / Mordecai / Katelyn Convery at Twilight
Time & Location
About The Event
Mordecai: Veiled in the sonic shroud of avant-pop's murky soundscapes, Portland, Oregon experimental Duo Mordecai are forging an incendiary path. Comprised of lap-steel/vocalist Andrew Alexander Endres and violinist Kate Kilbourne, the band came together in early 2016, conspiring darkly sweet, beat-driven bangers that fold in R&B swagger, electro mysticism, and pop sensibility.
LASKA (Minneapolis, MN): Formed in 2016, LASKA crafts music with a blend of intricate vocal harmonies, sweeping instrumentals, and profound lyricism. Sisters, Hannah Mae, Bex, and Mookie Morton balance ingenuity with classic storytelling to create a unique sound that blurs lines between genres and resonates with listeners from any background. In Spring of 2019, LASKA pushed their sound into a new chapter with the release of "in the blossom of this," an EP exploring the sisters' ever-evolving understanding of the people they love and the world around them. The Mortons along with Evan Middlesworth (producer/guitar) will spend the remainder of 2019 touring in support of the EP. The band is currently at work on a full length album slated for release in 2020.
Katelyn Convery: With a buttery, breathless roar over the warmth of a single acoustic guitar, singer-songwriter Katelyn Convery's soothing tones tap into deeper histories and an undeniable emotional momentum, accentuated by atmospheric bass lines and a driving percussive heartbeat. Convery's writing captures universal stories through a unique lens and a varied collection of influences from her worldly pursuits, including busking solo-acoustic in Barcelona and recording an electronic-house album in South Africa. Born and raised in Oregon, any wandering ear might call her one of Portland's best kept secrets, though not for long. Portland Notes called Katelyn "a voice to remember" following the 2015 release of her debut album, Unarmed. Her truest home resides in the very songs she writes: a refreshingly raw, honest take on alternative pop reminiscent of both Carlisle and Morissette.
