Ruins "2"

Ruins released a new EP called “2” last week via Fine Prints. This is the bedroom pop of Adam Schubert of Cafe Racer, and this EP is Adam’s third of 2018.

He is able to come across as so prolific in 2018 because he had been recording on his own for years, but only recently decided to release his recordings. We are so glad he did!

Jigsaw Youth brings a blend of punk and hardcore to Trans-Pecos

In September, NYC’s Jigsaw Youth released Sorry for the Distortion, an album that follows 2017’s LP, America’s Sweethearts. Made up of Natascha Beck (guitar), Julia Mannarino (drums), and Maria Alvarez (bass/vocals), Jigsaw Youth hearken back to the relentless wrath of bands like Bikini Kill and Hole; but their inspirations draw near and far—from FIDLAR to Fugazi. They rip through a lot more than just punk in their songs, navigating hardcore, metal, and grunge influences with dexterity and fury. You can catch the trio play at Trans-Pecos on October 26th, where they’ll be playing with So Over It, Mean Siders, and Bad Kiss! - Sara Nuta

A Deli Premiere: single "Greasy Spoon" by former AOTM Birdgangs

Former Deli New England artists of the month Birdgangs, an indie rock quartet from Boston, could be considered coastal traitors. The inform their clean take on classic rock and roll with distinctly West Coast, surfy overtones. This may be most visible in their newest single, "Greasy Spoon" (streaming below), an eclectic tune that is bursting with life. The main riff, written by lead guitarist Matt Bates, sounds like it should be soundtracking your favorite surfer movie. A completely new genre is born when it's directly juxtaposed with the grungy breaks in the track that pull you right back into a Boston basement show. The transitions are at once extremely disorienting and undeniably effective, a nascent appeal to the diverse music scene of the city. The track is also the first to be written by the band since the addition of drummer Fernando Echeverry, according to lead vocalist Jack Davis. He said, "There’s a uniting element to the process that brought the song about. I heard Matt playing the riff that ended up in the song and that was definitely what set it in motion. The lyrics tell a story of an unfortunate misunderstanding between people that leads to some awkward hilarity and delightfully unexpected batches of late-night pancakes.” Birdgangs will be playing their next live show at Opus in Salem at 9 pm. - Lilly Milman, photo by Hannah Blauner
