Farmertan debuts second act of sonic play "Muse of Fire"

Connecticut outfit Farmertan returns with the second act of its sonic play Muse of Fire, which enters a new chapter revved up and hot for noise. While the first act surely had its gritty rock moments, this second act kicks off with tracks like “Man of the Hour,” which sprints across its nearly four minutes of lingering-distorted chords, spirited drum fills, and oh-so subtle bassline with the velocity alternative rock demands. “The Storm” slows down some but is still powered by fuzzy guitar riffs and reverberated vocals that match the characteristics of the music; the guitar solo in the track is killer. “After” is the most melodic of the songs, gritty and fueled up still but with a cool strut to it that closes the act splendidly. Overall this continuation makes evident that this sonic play is well underway and that the last act is worth sticking around for; stream the second act below for a solid Tuesday playlist. - Rene Cobar

Hollow River has fun with confessions in new single "Known To Lie"

Mark MacDonald, also known as Hollow River, has released a single slippery-fun that flows beautifully and crashes with alternative rock power. “Known To Lie” has a turn-of-the-millennium sonic innocence to it, in the alt-rock, power pop style of groups like Smash Mouth: the music makes you feel good, maybe like partying. MacDonald flows in each verse with plentiful charisma and allows for revved up electric guitars to do the rest of the talking when the choruses arrive. For a summer hit, the music and its theme should be an anthemic escape from the weight of the prior seasons, “Known To Lie” fits that criteria. Another weekend arrives in an unusual 2020, stream “Known To Lie” to get through it with a gleeful smile. - Rene Cobar, photo by Sergio P. 





New Threads offers up a refreshing alt-rock single in "Schlitz"

“Schlitz” is just the type of feel-good story we need for the weekend ahead: the song is over six minutes of summer-scented alternative rock recorded by Boston’s New Threads in three different parts of Massachusetts. Jacob Keplinger (guitar, vocals, keys), Justin Siegel (drums, vocals), James Siegel (bass, vocals) did not allow the pandemic to disrupt the connection they share nor the creativity that propels the group, and we all get to reap the rewards of that. “Schlitz” has a jam feel to it as it switches rhythms and flashes distinctive guitar riffs that feel refreshing and have a slight acidity to them—the song is a cool summer beverage. Sprinkling mint-cool elements of jazz and psych, New Threads offers a funky track you will want to take in slowly; recorded a la 2020 and perspiring a better tomorrow, “Schlitz” is streaming below. - Rene Cobar

Bees Deluxe jam something sweet in new single "Nitro"

Sending us to a much-needed weekend, Boston’s Bees Deluxe jams something sweet in the group’s new single “Nitro” featuring the chops of drummer, producer, composer Poogie Bell who keeps a delicious groove going. “Nitro” features bluesy guitar licks and smooth vocals that soothe and mesmerize, something like sparkly spilled honey. The track has a fun Southern feel to it: a relaxed summer single that whisks us away to a place of comfort, maybe somewhere where we can dance alone. Is the world a better place with music in it? When you listen to “Nitro,” it sure seems that way; stream the new single below for a better weekend. - Rene Cobar
