'Portlandia' jokes about "knowing your chicken" aside, Cibo Matto - the food obsessed Japanese duo from the good 'ol Grand Royal days of the 90's - have cooked up a new record to go along with their reunion which was announced back in 2011.
'Hotel Valentine' is their first full-length in 15 years and if 'MFN', the collab with Reggie Watts, is any indication of what we can expect, it smells like the ingredients may have been updated, but the freaky flavor is still a classic, if an admittedly acquired taste.

If it almost seemed like Ani DiFranco - the stalwart singer/songwriter/movement - decided to sit out the 21st century, the recent debacle surrounding her now-canceled "Righteous Retreat" at a former slave plantation has surely put her on the front page and back into people’s minds. Her 17th studio album, 2012's ¿Which Side Are You On?, showcased the influence that her new home base of New Orleans has had on her sound. It's been two years since Ani played Portland, so expect her to bring not only her tight brand of folk funk, but also a renewed sense of purpose that sometimes comes with controversy.
