Luke Reed releases new single, to perform at Great Scott on 8/19

You might not think you know Luke Reed, but odds are you do, at least from the bands he's in. A member of Bent Shapes, Mini Dresses, Fedavees and Feral Jenny, Reed is deeply embedded in Massachusetts' music scene to say the least.  He's an accomplished solo artist as well, having released tracks over the past few years that range from mellow to psych pop to a standalone krautrock track — no kidding! His latest single is called "Without You," and seem to take a nod or two from The Avalanches tune of the same name, sounding almost like a hungover version of it. With tropically inflected guitars, Reed's vocals add another dimension to the track's wistful, psychedelic and disoriented, and sing repeatedly "I wouldn't know which way to go without you." This song prooves Reed's talent is only matched by how busy he must be with all these projects, and you can see him live solo at Great Scott on 8/18. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Bent Shapes to Open for CYHSY

Boston locals Bent Shapes will be opening for well-known indie rockers Clap Your Hands Say Yeah tomorrow, October 1 at The Middle East Downstairs. Coming off of the release of their newest record, Feels Weird, their energy will be a great fit alongside the quirky stylings of CYHSY. Last I checked, tickets are still available, but act fast--this one could sell out. Doors at 8PM, tickets are $20 at the door. 18+, proper ID required.
