Conjjjecture Make Presence Known with Living for Dead Labor

Put simply, Living for Dead Labor, the newest release by Portland, Maine’s Conjjjecture has everything you could ever want in a great album from local talent. The band manage to perfectly combine electro grooves with excellent guitar work. The incorporation of a trumpet on the tracks makes these songs really stand out. It adds an extra layer of aural joy to the mix, filling-out the tracks to their maximum potential.

I knew this was a good record right from the start when I heard the opening track, “Phobophobic,” and simultaneously wanted to go out and rage and chill out on my porch with a beer. It’s quite an unusual--but freakin’ awesome--feeling. The rest of the album does not disappoint, holding that same unique energetic and laid-back feel through all ten tracks. Be sure and check out the band’s Facebook page for updates about when they will be passing through a city near you!

Joy Kills Sorrow releases 'Wide Awake' EP + tours extensively

Boston/Portland (ME)/Brooklyn based quintet Joy Kills Sorrow is that go to band every blogger speaks highly of, but they have yet to make the kind of splash they deserve. That may change with the pending release of new EP 'Wide Awake,' to be followed by a lengthy coast to coast tour. The five piece bluegrass/folk group has always found ways to extend themselves. Be it virtuoso string playing, huge lead vocals (Emma Beaton) or their penchant for re-configuring their classical backgrounds to carve out new worlds for pop jams (check out their fantastic cover of 'Such Great Heights,' streaming below), the band always comes across sounding new while staying firmly rooted in a classic American roots tradition. They're setting off across the country this summer, but be sure to catch them live when they come around later this year.
