• The "Sibilance" staff sat in on DAVE GUTTER's new project, with EVAN CASAS, being mastered by ADAM AYAN at Gateway. The record's called The Key to Adore and is more organic and subdued than what you've heard from Gutter before. Watch out for his cover of "The Man Comes Around." Look for the disc by end of summer.
• Here's a history lesson: June 24 marks the 40th anniversary of Portland pop band LOVE, INC.'s first single: "She don't Care About Me/Never Never Land," on Musicor Records. You can hear tracks from drummer MARC MAILHOT's new solo album, Coral Sunset, at www.myspace.com/thechapparals.
• CARLL WILKINSON, who debuted with Pomegranate in 2005, has a new release, The Working Poor Blues, which he's recorded with PETE MORSE in his Busted Barn Studios. Wilkinson does a lot of the work — drums, bass, guitars, pedal steel, piano — but he brings in STEFEN SAMUELS (Eldemur Krimm) and jazz pianist TOM SNOW from time to time, too.
• LADY LAMB THE BEEKEEPER are no longer a duo. Chanteuse ALY SPALTRO will kick off the band's next phase with a solo show (accompanied by a looping station) at One Longfellow Square June 25.
