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.





New Track: "Country Song" - Joy Again

Lil Nas X's chart-topping success with "Old Town Road" reinvigorated the debate over how one approaches musical genres. Is it about sonic structure, lyrical setting, the overall lifestyle/culture it depicts, etc.? That being said, Joy Again have new single that they've titled “Country Song”. The recording melds the warmth of slide and acoustic guitar, with keys and backend, helping yopur mind meander down some backwoods road. The track morphs over the course of time, bring to mind Ween-esque musical terrain, shifting expectations. Is it a "country song"?





Modern Painters prepare to unveil their latest record "City Folk" at ONCE 07.05

The music of Boston’s Modern Painters drips a syrupy sonic collage of influences that when looked at from afar create a harmonious portrait worth admiring. The various textures that range from honeyed pianoforte phrases to vibrantly colored electric guitar flourishes betray the group’s indie-folk label, transcending it, sketching slowly something far more complex. The group’s latest single “Hive” lingers beautifully, paced by an initially feather-light jazz drum beat that revs up to meet the arpeggiating guitar and thumping bass inspired by your favorite indie-rock record. The lead vocals of Gabe Goodman are entrancing enough to match today’s dream-pop stars and mist away in the single to make way for an irresistible sax solo that melts like butter under the summer sun. Modern Painters are gearing up for the release of City Folk, their first album in nearly two years. The release show will be at ONCE in Somerville on July 5th, and we are thrilled to preview the record for you by streaming “Hive” below. - Rene Cobar





Bells Atlas releases mystical video for The Mystic

Bells Atlas just released their latest music video for song "The Mystic" and it's full of mystical tones and trippy dance moves. It's difficult to look away from what feels like a live painting jolting into action and feeling. The song starts out with a kick-kick drum snap like a call and a march, then eventually moves into that psyched out R&B vibe they're known for. Enjoy this fascinating scene and wait for the shimmering dance plastic. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
