Thunderforge Brings a Killer Robot Xmas to Salem, MA 12/23

Stumped on what to get that special someone this holiday season?  Stuff their stocking with some power metal from Thunderforge.  The western Mass heavy metal quintet released their EP, Call of the Conqueror, earlier this year, bringing into the world five tracks of face-melting guitar work and soaring vocals from frontman Adam Morini.  The album is an excellent showcase of the bands talents, ranging from driving, double-bass riddled mayhem to softer, dynamic sections that illustrate the band's diverse capabilities.  Check these guys out at Koto in Salem, MA on 12/23 for a "Killer Robot Xmas" toy and canned food drive, also featuring Frostbite, Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band, and Green Bastard. -Brian Varneke

 

The FORZ Bring Infectious Power-Pop to Sally O'Brien's 12/31

Listening to The FORZ's sophomore album Running From The Past, it's hard not to see the irony in the title.  The brain child of songwriting duo Cole Tyler and Anthony Graziano, the Boston power pop quartet has embraced a wonderfully Beatles-esque/surf rock dynamic, bringing a modern energy to a tried and true formula of quality songwriting and simple, catchy melodies.  All four members share the title of lead singer, adding an extra layer of variety in their vocal stylings.  If you're in the mood for some high-energy nostalgia, help Boston's fab four ring in the New Year at Sally O'Brien's on 12/31. -Brian Varneke

Diablogato Plays Firehouse 13 on 12/16

You've undoubtedly heard the musical elements and influences that make up Diablogato's distinct sound, but you have never heard them put together quite like this.  Fusing together rockabilly, punk, folk/Americana, and "gothic southern swamp darkness", Diablogato creates a unique potpourri that is all of those things and more (think Josh Homme meets The Stray Cats, with a bari sax thrown in for good measure).  If you're in the mood for some dirty, squealing, high energy rock n roll, jump in your Cadillac and head down to Firehouse 13 in Providence on 12/16, where they'll share the stage with Cactus Attack and Tiger Man Whoa! -Brian Varneke

 

 

Buzz Alert: New Hampshire Singer/Songwriter Lina Tullgren Mesmerizes with EP "Wishlist"

New Hampshire songstress Lina Tullgren's Wishlist is a raw, vulnerable exploration of love, growth, and heartbreak.  Utilizing the warmth and character of analog, Tullgren invents a reflective melancholic sound that is both original and inescapably personal, sacrificing technical perfection for emotional connection.  With songs that feel more stream of consciousness than solid in form, Wishlist allows the listener a peek through the looking glass of what it is to be young and what it means to grow up.  Lina is a unique and mezmerizing voice, and we can't wait to hear what else she has to say. -Brian Varneke

 

Twin Chameleon Brings Their Brand of Indie-Pop to McGann's Irish Pub 12/9

Simple, catchy melodies, surprisingly incongruent lyrical content and the occasional calypso flavor, makes Boston indie pop-trio Twin Chameleon a stand-out act.  As you listen to their self-titled debut EP, it's difficult not to make comparisons to bands like Bombay Bicycle Club or early-era Vampire Weekend.  However, Twin Chameleon definitely has their own character and is quickly mastering the art of engaging pop anthems.  From the beach-vibe of "Spring Break" to the unique vocal soundscape of "Counting Sheep", each track has something different to offer.   Check them out as they take the stage at McGann's Irish Pub with Makutu, The Maxims, and Floorcloud on 12/9. -Brian Varneke
