Western Estates Releases New EP, Me First

 In case you missed them as one of our featured artists for December, it's not too late to check out New Haven alt-garage rockers, Western Estates.  With tonal flavors ranging from post-punk to grunge to pop, Western Estates dance within and around those genres enough to never quite be pinned down by any of them.  From the bright, catchy "One and Done" to the darker, harmonically complex "Alone, To Get Her", their new EP Me First gives a glimpse into the eclectic nature of the band. -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counterpoint of soulful melody vs acrobatic hip-hop flow is backed up by a Motown-style band that makes sampling seem outdated.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

First Frost Releases Self-Titled Debut EP

Defying definitive genre classification, Boston-based quartet, First Frost (formerly Foliage), has released a debut EP that feels more like a multi-movement work than an indie-rock album.  As a songwriting duo, Lauren Koppelman and Morgan Browne combine elements of shoegaze and psych/experimental rock with sleek pop leanings, creating an original tapestry of sound that is all and none of the influences that comprise them.  Check out the EP below, and weather the Winter with First Frost. -Brian Varneke

 

Colbis the Creature Plays O'Brien's Pub 1/18

 With their self-titled debut, Colbis the Creature have released an EP, perfectly balanced between the catchy and the provocative.  Seeming to fully understand the importance of tension-release, combining tasteful dissonance with memorable vocal melodies, Colbis offers their new fans a record meant to be played loud and disruptively.  If intelligent lyrics are your thing, Nick Caliendo will gladly oblige with solid offerings throughout, although the highlight is closing track "James Dean".  Join these suburban Boston boys at O'Brien's Pub on 1/18 with Nox and Snowhaus. -Brian Varneke

 

New Haven's Olive Tiger Releases Impressive Debut, Until My Body Breaks

 Love standard fare indie rock, but wish there was something more?  Enter Olive Tiger, a prolific songwriting trio, featuring non-standard instrumentation of orchestral strings, electronics, and more.  Their debut album Until My Body Breaks expands on indie/pop sensibilities to create something new.  At times heavily orchestrated, while keeping at its core a simple and compelling singer/songwriter feel, Olive Tiger keeps you on your toes, throughout.  Check them out at Cafe Nine in New Haven on 2/17 with Xenia Rubinos. -Brian Varneke
