Giant in the Lighthouse releases ambient EP "Waving," plays ONCE 07.22

Giant in the Lighthouse suggests with its music a world separate from the hustle and bustle of everyday life: the duo from Lowell, Massachusetts composes songs that one can lose themselves to with ease. Smooth vocals and ambient sounds soothe the listener away from worries while hints of alt-folk music add color and indie-rock breakdowns complete the escape. The group draws influences from bands like Tokyo Police Club and Youth Lagoon to craft its rich and easy-listening sound. The band’s latest record Waving showcases its smooth transitions from ambient folk music to vivid alt-rock. Giant in the Lighthouse will be performing at ONCE in Somerville on July 22nd. We are streaming “Sprinting” from the new EP below. - Rene Cobar





New Purling Hiss EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

"Summer meanz guitarz!" With Purling Hiss's latest EP Interstellar Blue, a gravitational pull of heavy is balanced by an ethereal drift. Its languid, mind-warping, guitar grooves have arrived just in time for the dog days of summer - a sublime complement to a frosty beverage and a fat spliff. You can grab your very own copy via Drag City Records. Purling Hiss are also all set to kick off their run of July shows this evening at PhilaMOCA, supported by The Writhing Squares and Long Hots.





Strangers by Accident celebrates single release tonight at Aeronaut Allston

Keeping New England’s folk-rock history going strong, Strangers by Accident has released a brand new single titled “Clean,” which pushes the limits of the genre in ear-pleasing fashion. The track builds up slowly: soft acoustic guitar strings and ambient vocal harmonies are led by impressive drum patterns toward a sonic cyclone of bass arpeggios and roaring electric guitar chords. The song closes with a front porch type of tranquility that betrays the storm that precedes it and completes the folk and rock ritual the band is fond of practicing. “Clean” is everything a folk-rock aficionado could ask for; the group is sure to play the single this evening at Aeronaut Allston, we are streaming it below for you. - Rene Cobar





Matt Maratea debuts funky new single "Can't Make It Up," MGM Live performance set for 07.12

West Springfield, Massachusetts is bumping to the latest single from their very own surging hip-hop star Matt Maratea. "Can't Make It Up" revs up a deliciously funky guitar riff that then blasts off alongside a pounding bass for a dance groove that enkindles Maratea's already captivating flow, abundant with charisma. The production by Tantu and Danny EB is squeaky clean, showcasing the producers' ability to layer harmonies in such an organized way that they create an entrancing atmosphere for the mind to escape to and a sonic spectacle that commands the body surrender unconditionally. The brand new single incorporates just enough pop and funk elements to create a viscous hip-hop hybrid track too sweet to ignore. Matt Maratea will be taking the MGM Springfield Stage by storm on July 12th, and we got "Can't Make It Up" streaming below in anticipation. - Rene Cobar





Stacey Kelleher creates an alt-pop atmosphere too rich to forget, plays ONCE 07.10

You can easily get lost within the thick dream-pop atmosphere of Boston’s Stacey Kelleher: the Berklee College of Music graduate has a habit of immersing listeners into her music with sensual layers of acoustic guitars, epic synth swells, and hazy vocal harmonies. Her self-titled debut album last year showcased the singer/songwriter’s ability to take prominent alt-pop elements and blend them with hints of British blues for a mix entirely of her own. Kelleher seems equally comfortable behind an acoustic guitar as she is at the vocal helm of a grand pop music production, the confidence appears to stem from her songwriting which is intimate in nature but passionate in delivery. Stacey Kelleher is bringing that duality to ONCE in Somerville on July 10th, and it should be a great time. We are streaming “All I See” in anticipation below. - Rene Cobar
