Northampton-based Bunny’s A Swine will be coming to the Boston area on June 27 to play a show at Great Scott in Allston. After recently releasing their fourth full-length, Calling Out, at The Thing in the Spring in New Hampshire, Bunny’s A Swine is taking to the road to help promote their album. This new collection of songs is full of bluesy, powerful guitar riffs, packed with enough energy to make even the most casual rock n’ roll listener get up and move. The vocal combo of Emerson Stevens and Candace Clement really makes these tracks stand-out. “Lasell”, the third track on the record, sounds like it could have been a B-side on Sonic Youth’s Rather Ripped, especially during the bridge. Stevens’ and Clement’s voices blend together perfectly, culminating in a raucous wave of guitar distortion and cymbal crashes.
According to a recent post on the band’s website, Calling Out is currently only available in digital-download due to issues surrounding the pressing of the vinyls. But fear not, the band is working to resolve those issues and physical copies should be available shortly (you can still pre-order the vinyl on their bandcamp site).
The show at Great Scott starts at 9PM on June 27. Tickets are $8, 18+ with proper ID. - Dan McMahon
