Portland Music News: May 1, 2009

By PORTLAND MUSIC STAFF  |  April 29, 2009

SEAN MORIN will perform his senior composition recital at UMaine Augusta's Jewett Hall on May 6. Judging by his results in the CAMBIATA and DARO, the "Sibilance" staff are pretty sure the recital's three segments — a film set to music, a field-recording piece intended for a blackened room, and a jazz composition performed with scene regulars DJ MOORE and STU MAHAN — will be well worth a listen. See Listings for details on the free show.

• The LEFTOVERS have a release show scheduled May 23 for their new Eager to Please, which they've recorded for CRAPPY RECORDS. They produced the disc with LINUS OF HOLLYWOOD, who's worked with Cheap Trick and P. Diddy, and there are guest appearances all over the place. BRETT ANDERSON of the DONNAS, KIM SHATTUCK of the MUFFS, PERRY GRIPP of NERF HERDER, COZ CANLER of the ROMANTICS, and JON RUBIN of the RUBINOOS all lend their talents (mostly vocals). The show at the Empire will feature ALL THE REAL GIRLS, the GOODNIGHT PROCESS, and JEFF BEAM's new project, the STEREO FLYS.

• Grace, the GYPSY TAILWIND follow-up to The Halo Sessions will be released (if everything goes right) June 9, with a release party in the week or so following.
