Providence's Edgar Clinks plays The Midway Cafe on 12.2 and AS220 on 12.5

Rebellious, whimsical, literary, and elegiac are some of the hopefully accurate words that come to mind when reflecting on Providence band Edgar Clinks' exhilerating September release, 'Keep Jetty Diving.' Featuring the innocent yet relentless vocals of frontman Joe Guadiana, these genre-melding tracks, from the sweet pop-punk of opener "Tree Culture" to the apparently surf rock-rattled closer "weave roll'd into another dream" (streaming below), curl up on the listener like a dog whose pure affection can't be denied. Edgar Clinks plays at The Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain, MA on 12.2 and at AS220 in Providence, RI on 12.5. - Zach Weg





Total Unicorn's Electronic Alien Freakout "Whole Lotta Louvre"

Spacefolk/musicians Total Unicorn dropped a quite nice future freakout track a couple weeks ago as the single for their just-released album Relaxation Tape, and we’ve got it in all its lovely pangalactic glory for you here today. “Whole Lotta Louvre” sounds like something straight out of a hip irreverent scifi universe (like if Fifth Element had a unhinged experimental edge to it), starting out with a grippingly odd alien choral performance that gives way to an equally extraterrestrial hard rap. None of it sounds like English, or really like anything familiar at all, but all of it is good weird spacefuture shit that’ll get your interstellar daydreams firing off instantly when you hear it. Get listening below to a delicious piece of electronic weirdness, and check back here for a post on the full album from one of the most unique groups in town sometime soon.

Typical Girls' Second EP of the Year is All Pretty Pop Guitar Melodies

Here's three new tracks from San Marcos indiepoppers Typical Girls who, despite the name, are a pack of dudes who make some very pretty pared down guitar rock with a quite unique sound. The new EP is the second the group has put out this year and is thus appropriately and simply titled "EP 2," and it contains three very well constructed tracks of feel-good, deeply pretty pop rock. There's a good bit of sunny-day synth, the reverb is turned up nicely and the vocals are subdued for a beautiful effect that gives them a bit of a Constellation Records from the early 2000s sound (particularly Broken Social Scene and The Dears). It's music that focuses on building moods and just being quite lovely, letting the lyrical content just be one element in a soft, but big and dynamic production. That member Mich D. White is also responsible for some of the lovelier electronic music in the area with his other act Kinder makes perfect sense when you hear "EP 2," with its many pleasing layers and nice, airy sounds. It's pretty fuckin' gorgeous music Typical Girls have put out here, most especially opener "How We Spent It," and it bodes well for this young band's future. Check it below, y'all.

Providence electronic act Bellerophon plays The Middle East-Corner on 11.16 and Aurora on 11.17

Back in April, Providence electronic act Bellerophon shared two elegantly sensual songs, "Face The Sun" and "Cowboy Without A Horse" (both streaming below). While the first track has project mastermind Mauricio Ossa pondering the unreachable over skipping effects, the second one has him elusively singing about possible confusion above ambling guitars. Listening to these songs, one may recall both the plush shoegaze of Big Troubles and the chilled electronica of The xx while eagerly wanting more songs from this undeniably intriguing project. Bellerophon plays at The Middle East-Corner in Cambridge, MA on 11.16 and at Aurora in Providence, RI on 11.17.- Zach Weg 





Boston rocker Emily Grogan shares anthemic 'Join Together' off forthcoming album "Strings of Light"

Melding the innocence of "Imagine" and the force of Radiohead's "Karma Police," Boston singer/songwriter Emily Grogan's "Join Together" (streaming below) off her forthcoming new album 'Strings of Light' is an electric call to arms. Fronting a battalion of hard drums and zinging guitars, the strong-voiced Grogan deflects the ploys of authorities while surging towards freedom with her fellow strivers. Spiked with the warmth that can be heard in pop, though, this rock song doesn't shove but rather nestles the listener to attention. While Emily Grogan doesn't currently have any upcoming shows listed, keep watch on her Facebook for future announcements. - Zach Weg
