Whatever Whatever Releases New Single "House Boy"

 With their new single "House Boy", Boston alt-rockers Whatever Whatever have re-asserted themselves as buzzworthy newcomers to the New England scene.  If you missed their debut EP, Who's This, we encourage you to go back and check it out.  The two works combined create a relevant and individual voice, both lyrically and musically, that is rare for a band of their limited discography.  "House Boy" (produced by Converse Rubber Tracks producer, David Minehan) is a taste of things to come, and we can't wait to see where their road leads next. -Brian Varneke

 





Giraffes? Giraffes! talk about pedals on Delicious Audio

Western MA-based GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES!  is one of those bands crafting deliciously head-spinning math-rock licks so labyrinthine, that you'd imagine it'd be tough for even a full four or five piece band to execute. So, when you hear that their music is the work of solely Joseph Andreoli (guitar) and Kenneth Topham (drums), it's more than a little dizzying to think about how the duo manages to pull it off. Luckily for us, Joesph was kind enough to give our sister blog Delicious Audio a behind-the-scenes look at the pedals he uses to create GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! expansive sound. You can find the interview at the link below. - Olivia Sisinni

Thank God For Science Performs at State Park 2/26

 Thank God For Science is an intergalactic collage of 70s funk, reggae grooves, soaring synths, orchestral arrangements, and spoken word monologues, coming together to form a debut record in Volume One.  The album is a sort of auditory found art piece, taking concepts and styles that you are familiar with and combining them in a way that is unique and eclectic.  Fully instrumental, Volume One would work just as well as a film soundtrack as a full-length album.  Check out Thank God for Science, performing at State Park in Cambridge, MA on 2/26. -Brian Varneke





Spend Valentine's Day with The Doped Up Dollies at O'Brien's Pub

 Boston vocal trio, The Doped Up Dollies, first garnered the spotlight as the backing singers for ska/punk legends Big D and the Kids Table.  They have since set out on their own and released a debut record in The New Way Out, a mesmerizing blend of roots rock, Motown R&B, dub, and revival ska, coming together to create a new genre: "stroll".  This time, members of Big D take a backseat as the supporting band for these three powerhouse vocalists.  The New Way Out is pure fun and incessantly danceable.  Experience it live on 2/14 at O'Brien's Pub, with support from The Pomps, Mickey Rickshaw, and Whoopi Sticks. -Brian Varneke

 





Baeja Vu Plays Thunder Road Music Club 2/2

The Cambridge 7-piece, Baeja Vu, is a one-of-a-kind mixture of throwback R&B, hip-hop, and funk.  Sporting dual vocals, the counterpoint of soulful melody vs acrobatic hip-hop flow is backed up by a Motown-style band that makes sampling seem outdated.  Check them out at Thunder Road Music Club with West End Blend and Slam Kitchen and find out if you're their #1 bae. -Brian Varneke
