Cousin Stizz delivers stylish hip-hop record "Trying To Find My Next Thrill"

Cousin Stizz deploys hypnotic beats to entrance listeners and lures them into a world crafted by his unquenchable thirst for glory. The Boston-based rapper is spinning his brand new record, Trying To Find My Next Thrill, a thirteen-track statement super-charged with punchy basslines, killer features, and honeyed R&B undertones. The beat of "Perfect" (feat. City Girls) slithers into the ears with menace as Cousin and City Girls spit a venomous romance that will paralyze you. The features continue to dazzle with "Toast 2 That" (feat. Freddie Gibbs), a bravado-spiced track that keeps the bars steady and the flow fueled-up, always ready to explode. Cousin Stizz is putting a rich R&B glaze over the captivating trap music that artists like Valee are championing in Chicago, creating a special brand that is uniquely his. The release of the new record has us anticipating New England show announcements this fall, fans will surely demand them. As we wait, we are streaming the booming album-opener “Meds” below. - Rene Cobar





Honey Cutt promises a thrilling full-length album with new single "Suburban Dream"

Honey Cutt has been keeping busy since the release of its 2019 single “Suburban Dream,” an indie-pop delight with both retro and quite modern colorations. The band toured extensively through July, visiting cities like Indianapolis and Detroit along the way. Kaley Honeycutt, who leads the Boston-based trio, fuels the powerful lyrics of “Suburban Dream” with observations of her time in suburbia. The song may be “tongue in cheek,” according to the band, but it touches on that genuine feeling that anyone who has lived in one place for most of their life can relate to, a sense of wanting to break out. Breaking out is precisely what Honey Cutt is doing: having signed to independent label Kanine Records the band promises a full-length record is coming. The group recently performed at ONCE in Somerville and is sure to keep its momentum going this fall. We are streaming the vibrant single below. - Rene Cobar

Letting rip fast-paced distorted guitars, eruptive drums, and sticky-good pop choruses, the group keeps the voltage high and the pop-punk cream thick. The band’s latest set of singles “Dykes To Watch Out For” and “Trash” are confirmation that the group plans on keeping its middle finger flying high toward the establishment, with powerful messages about personal freedom and empowering rock ‘n’ roll—the way any great punk band ought to do. The two singles are a preview of the group’s upcoming record Dykes To Watch Out For set for release on August 30th. If you want to catch Dump Him live, you can make your way to the Flywheel Arts Collective in Easthampton, MA tomorrow evening.

The Missouri Pacific delivers powerful message in new music video for "Heartland"

Yes, the music video for NH-based The Missouri Pacific’s “Heartland” (streaming) is as graphic as you think, and we love it. The band’s big sound, comprised of swelling trumpets, a sensuous bassline, and a quirky vocal delivery, is perfectly paired with New England’s unmistakable landscapes (Red Arrow spotted: so good). The drums are pounded on fast and fantastically, and the beats change enough to keep the listener entertained, within all of the fun it may be easy to miss the vital message rooted in the song. The 7 billion trees cut down each year around the world should be an alarming statistic for anyone, and The Missouri Pacific chose a powerful and quite symbolic way to remind us, for that we thank the group. - Rene Cobar
