The Sun Parade's Heart's Out EP

The Sun Parade’s Hearts Out EP feels like a care-free walk through the woods of Western Mass. The light hearted single “Hearts Out” showcases the vocal prowess of lead singer Chris Jennings, with a smooth and bright tone and surprisingly rich falsetto. They’re in the midst of tour right now and will be playing Great Scott in Allston, along with the ladies of And The Kids, this Wednesday February 25th, and again in New Haven, CT on the 26th. So Eastern MA and South Eastern CT, be sure not to miss these killer showcases what’s coming out of the Amherst area. You can download the EP here.

Show Alert: Gymshorts, The TeleVibes, and Randos at Dover Brickhouse

Come February 27th, Dover Brickhouse will be heated up by three premium local New England Psych acts. Gymshorts grabbed the #3 slot in our end of year poll with their scuzzy Surf-Punk. They’re being joined by The Televibes and Randos, from Massachusetts and New Hampshire respectively. The Televibes have a bright punchy sound with absurd amounts of reverb and delay on the vocals. When they all start shouting the chorus of their tune “Washed Up” it makes your head spin in the best way. And if the bands weren’t already trippy enough, there will be a old school liquid light show while the bands play. Check out the Brickhouse’s website for more details. - Paul Jordan Talbot


Show Alert: Leisure Cruise, Atlas Lab and Sundog at Middle East Upstairs, 2/18

Swap out your snow boots and parkas for your dancin' shoes and head over to The Middle East Upstairs tomorrow night, February 18. Brooklyn's Leisure Cruise are coming through Cambridge/Boston, bringing with them a warm wave of electro-pop that should make everyone forget about the frozen tundra outside, if only for a little while. They'll be supported by locals Atlas Lab and Sundog, who is making the trip all the way from outer space (also known as New Orleans), according to his bio. The show kicks off at 8PM and is presented by Boston Music Scene. 18+, $10 at the door, proper ID required. For more info about the show, click here.

Show Alert: Nice Guys EP Release, 2/12

There’s something oddly comforting about dirty guitars, fast drums and shouting, which probably points to some hidden emotional issues on my part, but whatever--that’s why punk music was invented. Chips in the Moonlight, the newest release from Nice Guys, has everything you could want in lo-fi punk recordings--distorted, almost tortured guitars and vocals that sound like they’re being pushed through a PA on the brink of explosion.
 

If you dig these tunes as much as I do, go see Nice Guys release this EP at Club Bohemia (Cantab Lounge, downstairs) in Central Sq., Cambridge, MA tomorrow night. $8, 21+, doors at 8PM, presented by Illegally Blind. More details about the show can be found here.

Get Ready to Rok with Ben Katzman's Degreaser

Rok N Rol Community College, the latest offering from Bufu Records’ own Ben Katzman’s Degreaser, cuts right to the chase. No reverb-soaked vocals or dream-bedroom-shoe-pop-gaze-core gimmicks--just straight-forward rock n’ roll. Coming in at around 10 minutes in length, Katzman crams even more raw rock n’ roll energy than one would otherwise expect into such a short time frame. My favorite song is the title track; with its crunchy guitars, fast rhythms and gang vocals, "Rok N Rol Community College" sounds as though Van Halen got bored one day and decided to play some Ramones covers.
