Alt folk artist Cape Francis celebrates debut release at Mercury on 09.22

Cape Francis is the solo-project of Kevin Olken Henthorn and features music that neatly fits into a self-made nexus of indie folk/rock/pop and “post” iterations of each. Cape Francis is able to oscillate between slow, melancholic elegies for what is lost (“Iditarod”) and heart-felt indie anthems (“5 in the Morning”). Regardless of presentation, Cape Francis skillfully evokes Northeastern wistful angst. His debut album “Falling into Pieces” is out September 22nd, and NYC’s Mercury Lounge will be hosting the release show on September 29th. - Amanda Ogea

Bedroom poppers Teenender play Great Scott 9/28

Boston band Teenender is a long missed dose of young heartbreak, just like their name suggests. Although their sound is definitely reminiscent of 80's synth-pop groups as well as indie counterparts from this generation (The 1975, Bad Suns, Haim), they manage to sound quite like no one else. On their sweet four-track EP called Kissed, they deliver pop songs with sentiments that aren’t far from mainstream boy bands, but come across as completely honest. Maybe it’s because there are so few like them in the scene, but Teenender definitely has a certain charm that makes their fun pop sound a necessary summer throwback. - Allie Miller

The Beaches - New Video is "Money"

Named after the area in Toronto in which they grew up, The Beaches are just about ready to explode. These gals know how to rock n' roll. They have just released their first single “Money” from their upcoming album. Rippin' tune with sensible, catchy melodies and a 60’s stoner voice that’s almost in Grace Slick territory. They are getting ready to release their first full length album on October 13th and will be touring North America with Death From Above 1979 for the fall. The final stop on the tour will be right here in Toronto on December 1st at The Phoenix. I dig their style, easily one of the bands you need to know right now. – Kris Gies
