Producer Garren Sean drops spectacular SUNDRIP EP & kicks off tour with Clairo

If you’re a big Chance the Rapper fan, then it’s time to take a step back and thank Garren Sean — the Bay Area producer who worked on “Smoke Break” as well as Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: Re-Wrapped. Where Sean really flourishes, though, is on his newest EP SUNDRIP. The eclectic project blends psychedelic (and occasionally grungey) sensibilities with catchy and modern electronica, creating something entirely fresh. Sean is at his best on tracks like “Psychedelic Soul” (streaming below), which give him the space to experiment with genre. The track is not only dance-friendly, but it’s a modern take on a groovy classic sound and shows a producer who is ready to take on the challenge of creating something completely new. Garren Sean is currently on tour with Clairo and will be back in San Francisco on August 16 for a hometown show at Brick & Mortar. - Lilly Milman





Enter Sean Rubin's avant-folk world on debut LP "everybody shares a name"

You may recognize the name Sean Rubin from his old project Ladyhips, a Deli New England Artist of the Month dating back to 2012, but if you haven’t heard of his solo project then it’s time to catch up. Rubin recently released his debut album everybody shares a name, an avant-folk project that finds a surprising comfort in the dissonance, asking difficult questions and accepting the fact that there isn’t always an answer. It’s striking for its lack of conventionality; this project takes risks, but it’s still easy to listen to for those willing to enter Sean Rubin’s weird and intricate world. Take the leap with us, and stream our favorite track “old birds” below. - Lilly Milman





Maxwell Bailey releases live EP & heads to Noise Floor Sessions at Aeronaut Allston (7.18)

When Boston-based singer-songwriter Maxwell Bailey decided to record his EP, he kept it simple. Featuring only his own solo vocals and guitar playing, the In Between live EP is a bare bones tribute to storytelling. It combines a raw performance with relatable lyrics, resulting in a record that’s easy to listen to and even better to dive into. Primarily a live performer, Bailey thrives in the spontaneity of this project, having recorded the entire record in one day at an Airbnb. He will be playing at the Noise Floor Sessions at Aeronaut Allston on July 18. - Lilly Milman

Freddie and Francine release rhythmic new single "Half A Mind"

 "I'm paralyzed by the thought of you just passing by..." Freddy and Francine put into song that wonderful feeling of the early days of being completely in awe of another person. "Half A Mind," the duo's latest single is a soulful, rhythmic, twang-infused love tune. Perhaps the best part of the song is its slow build, beginning with a bass line and vocals, then adding percussive textures and layering on the harmonies like layering a decadent chocolate cake with frosting. But when it really comes down to it, the song is sparse and restrained in all the right places- it could build into something like a full-band/drum kit throw-down, but it doesn't. Perhaps the arrangement is a metaphor for those early days of a love that isn't quite reciprocated yet. If "Half A Mind" doesn't convince the other party to take the leap, then I'm not sure what will. -Geena Kloeppel

 





You Drive's first single "New" is like unwrapping a birthday present

 If you've been listening to Sylvan Esso lately, or perhaps Oh Wonder, or you just really like electronic music with thoughtful, evocative lyrics, you should be listening to You Drive's first single called "New." Beware- on first glance, "New" is disguised by its simplicity. But if you take apart each synth, each hit on the driving rhythm, and really listen to what singer Jasmine Kaset is trying to say, there's a depth and complexity that feels unparalleled in today's electronic music scene. You Drive's album is out August 3rd, and we'll be listening to all of it with the same devotion as "New." -Geena Kloeppel
