Folk songstress Jeannie debuts with tender self-titled record, plays Union Tavern 06.29

The soft music of Boston’s Jeannie with its supple vocal melodies, entrancing acoustic guitar overtures, and pulsating cello foundations slowly leads the listener to a place familiar, a corner of the mind treasured. The indie-folk songstress is debuting with a self-titled EP suggestive of detachment from the hectic world, the atmospheric music lends itself to as much, the compassionate musical expressions float freely, and yet the lyrics center the themes back to people, relationships, love. Jeannie’s music is the perfect example of folk’s power of suggestion, the genre’s ability to produce beautiful sonic portraits recognizable to each listener in a unique way. Jeannie will be performing at Union Tavern in Somerville on June 29th, bringing the momentum of her premiere with her.

Tom Abbott's "Puppet Boy" is a fantastic sonic collage, show upcoming at Wrentham Town Common 07.28

No better way to start your weekend than with the upbeat acoustic brilliance of Wrentham's Tom Abbott! The singer-songwriter has released his sophomore full-length record Puppet Boy, a collection of indie-folk tracks dipped in just enough lo-fi-production waters to provide a raw sound irresistible. The vibrant acoustic guitar phrases and upbeat drum patterns of "Hello" have the candid indie-folk spirit of bands like The Decemberists while "8 Hours" kicks off with serrated guitar riffs à la lo-fi star-of-the-moment Justus Proffit. In "Happy," Abbott bares his soul in a cathartic blues-tinged song that showcases his vocal magnetism to the tune of elegant piano chimes. The fuzzy bassline and fractured guitar arpeggios of "Fly on the Wall" are pure indie-rock goodness. The record finishes with the aptly-titled "Goodbye" a track that keeps the sonic sprint going, flashing sweet harmonies as it races to the finish line. Tom Abbott can be proud of a record that encompasses a variety of genres from punk in "Fake Punk" to alt-country in "Lemonade," treating everyone to something exquisite. Tom will be playing at the Wrentham Town Common July 28th, sure to unleash his sonic collage in a must-see performance. "Hello" is streaming below. - Rene Cobar





Wet Dream Song Release

Wet Dream just premiered their song “See Foam Run,” off their upcoming album Future Nostalgic. The dream-pop band manages to peacefully blend the more wistful elements of their music with the more upbeat backing. “See Foam Run” creates a unique and lovely combination of moods. It feels lost but not lonely, guided by an earnest desire to explore the darkness it finds itself in. Listening to the song feels like looking at yourself in the mirror surrounded by shadowy neon lighting. It's a beautiful piece of exploration. 

Future Nostalgic will be out on August 7th.

Fresh Buzz: Arthur Moon announces debut LP, plays Elsewhere with Palehound 07.10

We've been huge fans of Arthur Moon for awhile. Admittedly, releases-wise things haven't been moving at break-necking pace for the the avant-indie project of queer artist Lora-Faye Åshuvud, as it often happens with music that's a little more sophisticated than the average. And Arthur Moon's music is a lot more sophisticated - and complicated - than the average. But finally word is out that the project debut album, following their excellent 2017 debut EP Our Head and a few singles, is about to drop, and preview single Homonormo bodes well for an outstanding release. Subverting anything that can be subverted in the rhythmic, melodic and production realms, this vocoder and plodding drumbeat-driven song finds a perfect balance between experimentation and melody, with Lora-Faye's vocals guiding us charmingly and confidently through an unexpected path of sonic twists and turns that never sound forced. 

Arthur Moon will be performing live at Elsewhere with Palehound on July 10th, with the debut record scheduled for an August 2nd release.
