EXPLODING IN SOUND RELEASES EMPIRE OF FUZZ

Last week Exploding in Sound (a Boston-based record company that has bands like Pile and Speedy Ortiz) released their extremely good Empire of Fuzz compilation album, including twenty-six tracks from bands all over the country. The fuzz comes in different varieties: fuzziness from lo-fi recording, fuzz coming from the garage, fuzz from a Big-Muff-type pedal, fuzz from too much volume, fuzz from noise. The newest in punk and post-hardcore genres are well represented here. Check out the track list and download the album for free here. - Geoff Noble

Get ready to dance: Stereo Telescope to release new album January 25th in Allston, MA

Stereo Telescope is an electro-pop duo comprised of Nikki Dessingue and Kurt Schneider, and every song on their new album ‘On and Running’ is chord-driven, hooky, danceable, electronic-ambient tastiness. A lot of the synth-clap noise throughout. Similar to M83, only with better vocals. My favorite is the single, ‘Fires’ which starts with a sort of drum/bass type beat, and then just hits you with the chorus. Check out the video here. Get yourself to Great Scott to pick up the vinyl or cassette of 'On and Running' on Friday, January 25th. Dance party extraordinaires The Pill Boston are curating a special space dance immersion theme, with a live set by the band at 11pm. RSVP to their album release show below. - Geoff Noble

Boston at SXSW: André Obin to release new electro-pop album this spring

Boston’s own André Obin is poised to be the synth-pop artist to watch at SXSW this year. Obin is releasing his debut full-length in March with NYC’s Sky Council Recordings. 'The Arsonist' will follow EPs released under European labels Trouw, Mina, and Klopfgeist. In mid-November, Boston label Vanya Records and other friends of Obin came together when he was the victim of an electrical fire that destroyed possessions and equipment at his Somerville, MA apartment. The compilation Friends of Andre was released on bandcamp for a $10 donation with 18 tracks from Boston artists including M|O|O|N and the New Highway Hymnal. Clearly, he is loved at home and overseas for his unique take on electronic music – his sounds could come from speakers at a euro-dance club or a laptop at your own private dance party. Queue up his soundcloud and listen to the many remixes that have been spawned from his music and you’ll start to understand why this artist and DJ is hyped to breakout this spring. - Hillary Anderson

Boston Band Plumerai releases album ‘Mondegreen’ with Lineup Changes

 Released late October, ‘Mondegreen’ is Plumerai’s second full-length album, and their first with new singer Eliza Brown. While listening, I couldn’t help but wonder if the singer was French: her symbolic lyrics and breathy, jazzy melodies made me feel like I was in a club in Paris, being crooned to by an attractive lady in a sequined dress. Turns out Ms. Brown is indeed French, although the band is from Boston. For their part, on many tracks we hear shoegaze guitar and bright cymbals, although the sonic landscape has been described well elsewhere as ‘moody’. - Geoff Noble
