Bellwire charms with quirky singles off upcoming album

“You got your path, oh I got mine” sings Tyler Burwood in Boston’s quartet Bellwire’s new single “Time Out.” The song, a jangly reflection speckled with vibrant guitar chords, bubbling drums, and monotone vocals, is a single off their upcoming album Dog Thoughts, which is set to be released on May 24. The album, if the singles are any indication, ranges from mellow, borderline melancholic ruminations evident in “JAKL” to spastic bouts in “Let It Shine,” (streaming below) another single with energetic guitars sputtering exuberantly into a solo where the chords stretch out and slacken the pace before dying out into feedback. A quirky aural exploration of age and relationships, Dog Thoughts seems to be shaping up to an entertaining listen. Keep tabs on Bellwire’s Facebook page for any upcoming shows and take a listen to their single below.

Step into Aloud's virtual reality

Have you ever found yourself wondering what it would be like to fall into the world of the music videos you’ve watched? Well Boston’s rock'n'soul band Aloud is attempting to do just that with “Falling Out of Love: The Virtual Reality Experience.” By creating a video using virtual reality technology, the band will immerse you into their tracks' journey of love and heartbreak when a long term relationship ends. The song, with slinking guitars, sensual saxophones, and Jen de la Osa’s smooth vocals, slowly builds to a climax before exhausting itself to an end–much like most relationships do. To support their virtual reality endeavor they have announced a headlining tour in three major cities, including their home base–Boston. Catch them May 5 and Hojoko @ The Verb Hotel for a VR demonstration and an intimate acoustic performance.

Julius Earthling plays O'Brien's Pub

At first you think that this band sounds like most indie rock bands: melodious guitar riffs, a fat bass chord, steady drums, and a captivating voice. But Julius Earthling quickly dispel this notion with their EP NFL Bliss, which erupts into a raucous rhythm that starts heading one way before completely changing up the tempo and heading down another path, then switching up again. It’s quirky, spastic, catchy and unpredictable which makes for one heck of a fun album. They play tonight at O’Brien’s pub so head on down for a night of great music. If you miss them make sure to keep tabs on their Facebook page for upcoming concerts.  

Tuxis Giant releases split EP with Traded

To listen to Boston based trio Tuxis Giant is to delve into the deep recesses of your mind. The rollicking guitar riffs and the gentle plucking of the chords play out like quiet, contemplative ruminations that creep up to you in the dark hours of the night. O'Conner’s voice glides over the melancholy melodies like pleading whispers before the electric guitar swells and his voice bellows over them. Tuxis Giant is the type of band you can listen to during long, midnight drives by yourself–the windows down with the wind racing past you. The band released a full length album in 2015 but just released a 4 song EP split with Traded (streaming below). Expect a full band show in a month so keep an eye on their Facebook page for details and listen to their album below!
