R. Ring marks the return of The Breeders’ Kelley Deal, partnered with Cincinnati bud Mike Montgomery of Ampline. Their concept is simple: just a mix of voices, guitars and keyboards in songs that can be harsh and haywire or gentle and dreamy, whatever feels right in the heat of the moment. The duo is not terribly concerned with getting product out on the market; they released a 7-inch on Misra Records in 2012 and have no plans for a full-length album. An exciting blend of Krautrockian moto-drive, avant jazz and screechy no-wave noise, Portland’s 1939 Ensemble are an instrumental trio in the “possible musics” mold who make intriguing new beats and melodies out of various percussive objects, vibes and head-warping amp feedback. Also: the psych/soul/cowboy experience that goes by the name Spurs.
