From the digital submissions: young talent Ice Cream Orphan

Ice Cream Orphan, a Boston-based project that started out with vocalist Cam Pulaski and evolved into a full-fledged, three-piece indie band, just released their sophomore album Things From My Mouth this June. This often upbeat LP takes cues from early Death Cab, providing sad songs you can dance to, like “10th Anniversary” (streaming below), with its deceptively fast-paced and catchy chorus (“But you’re the only one that I could ever hold / And now I need you, though I left you months ago”) and “You Just Wanted to Feel Loved” with its trombone part. Their next show will be on August 5th at a house show in Tewksbury, MA. - Lilly Milman

From the digital submissions: Jack Labbe's tender Americana

When it comes to the New England Americana of Jack Labbe, there is a lot more than meets the eye. For example, his newest release, How to Behave Around Horses, comes with footnotes that, quite literally, teach you about horse etiquette. Meanwhile, his lyrics focus on past relationships. When combined, these two themes work well together, providing a unique approach to future relationships. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Paris Parks at Bennington College (where Labbe himself attends) the production of this EP is masterful—it’s intimate, warm, tender. Listening to this EP is like being in a room with Labbe; no background noise, no outside forces, just the serene picking of his guitar. - Lilly Milman

shiver. Plays O'Brien's 08.03

Hailing from Salem, Ma, shiver. is an eclectic mix of ambient dream pop and emo-infused indie rock.  Their latest release, 2016's Evergreen has a laid back vibe to it, but it's not afraid to get aggressive when needed.  With constantly catchy hooks, introspective lyrics, and unexpected grooves, shiver weaves an enthralling web.  It's an album that you instantly 'get' and yet, begs for a second listen.  Catch shiver live at O'Brien's Pub on 8/3 with oldsoul, Pushflowers, and Another Musician. -Brian Varneke
