New videos from Erin Cole-Baker, Chris Beland

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Bend singer-songwriters Erin Cole-Baker and Chris Beland (aka Chris Chabot) each have a new video out, thanks to local dude Josh Cordell, who shot and edited them quick-fast-ninja-style. Let’s watch them, shall we?

First, a simple, pretty video perfect for Cole-Baker’s song “World Sweet World” from her 2009 album “Talon and Spur.”

Next, a video for “The Weather Man” by Beland, starring downtown Bend at night. Beland’s new album is coming out soon, I hear.

I love the Central Oregon music scene. You guys know I do.

But today, I’m driving over to Portland to see three great bands — Telekinesis! Superchunk!! Teenage Fanclub!!! — and I need to hit the road, so we’re gonna keep this short:

Click here to visit The Bulletin’s online music section for a rundown of what’s happening in Central Oregon this week. We’ve got country star Jo Dee Messina (kinda love this song), Alaskan rocker Matt Hopper (his new album is great) and local pop-punkers Capture the Flag (kicking off a U.S. tour by playing with the great Broadway Calls tonight), plus The White Buffalo, Lucy Schwartz, Big Jugs, Luckyiam, The Defibulators and a locals’ roundup that includes Blackstrap, Chris Chabot, Deb Yager and Bo Reynolds, StillFear and Shovelbelt.

Local music news: DJ Barisone mix / The Dirty Words video / The Supervillains coming to town / introducing Jukebot / Chris Chabot streams new album

Little nuggets of news from Central Oregon’s music scene, coming your way … now.

DJ Barisone lived in Bend for a decade and moved to Portland a few months back. No matter where he lives, though, you want to hear his latest mix, right? Yup, you do. Especially if some sunny, funky, dubby party music sounds good to you on these cold, gray, winter days. It’s called “Lion in the Dancehall,” and you can get it by clicking here. If you’re gun-shy, check the tracklist here.

I’m late on this, but there’s still plenty of time — a month — to submit a “YouTube-style webcam video” to local indie-rock band The Dirty Words for their song “Damn Jacket.” They’re going to take all the videos they get and smash them together to create their very first music video. Fun, right? Right. There are some rules and other guidelines, including how to submit your masterpiece, here.

Local, faith-focused folk singer Chris Chabot has released a new album called “Outer Space,” and he’s made it available for streaming here. They’re pretty songs, so give ‘em a listen.

Fresh off their successful luring of the Mad Caddies to Mountain’s Edge back in November, Redmond’s Necktie Killer will open two local shows for another nationally touring reggae/ska outfit, The Supervillains, in late January. The Florida four-piece have played in Bend three times in the past three years, including an opening slot for the Caddies at the Domino Room in early 2007. But on Jan. 23, they’ll squeeze into Bend’s Mountain’s Edge bar, and on Jan. 24, they’ll play at Timbers in Redmond. There’s more info — times, cost, ticket outlets — at Necktie Killer’s spiffy Web site.

(Reminder: Necktie Killer and Larry and His Flask are gonna rock New Year’s Eve tonight at Mountain’s Edge. 9 p.m. $5. Cheap, good times.)

Jukebot

Check out the McMenamins Old St. Francis School calendar. Look there, on Jan. 20: Jukebot.

Who’s Jukebot, you ask?

Jukebot, apparently, is what you get when you take the ashes of the recently defunct/defunked local band El Dante — or at least the ashes named Gabe Johnson (guitar) and Tyler Mason (bass) — and you mix them with Jared Forqueran (drums) and Aaron Andre Miller (keys) of Person People and Anastacia’s band, and then you add the dynamic vocals of Stephanie Slade, also of The Sofa Kings. (Forqueran, Miller and Mason also played together in the David Bowers Colony before it blew apart.)

That’s a lot of cross-band-pollination there.

So yeah, Jukebot is a new band on the scene that has no music on its MySpace yet, but promises to play “21st century funk ‘n’ roll” influenced by Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Pearl Jam, The Meters and so on. The band came together to play the recent, annual, semi-secret “Church of Neil” show (to celebrate Mr. Young’s birthday) and clicked. Since, according to the MySpace, Jukebot has been “focusing largely on cover material and has recently begun to branch out into original material that reflects the members wide variety of influences, spanning from Rock n Roll to Funk, from Modern Rock to Hip Hop and Soul.”

That Jan. 20 show at McMenamins will be their first ever. Assuming they stick together for a while, you can bet we’ll be telling you more about Jukebot in GO! Magazine and Frequency at some point in the future.
