Fish House releases escapist new single, plays Lilypad Inman 08.10

A little groovy, a little surfy, and a lot of fun is “Better for It” the latest single from Boston’s Fish House. The talented trio does not lack direction: each note in the new track is carefully placed to stimulate the senses, create images of a peaceful world desired. The band’s indie rock is polished with elements of R&B, creating its appeal. From the smooth vocal delivery to the deep bass groove and shimmering piano notes that surround it, the single is a sonic rope leading to escape. Indie rock’s progression over the last few years has leaned toward the harsh electronic sounds of Ty Segall and Des Rocs, but it could be argued what Fish House offers for the genre is far more sensitive and sound. The band is bringing its evocative sounds to Lilypad Inman in Cambridge on August 10th. We are streaming the new single for you below. - Rene Cobar





Ceschi digs deep in new record, Middle East performance set for 09.01

New Haven’s Ceschi Ramos challenges listeners to enter his world of inconvenient truths and dark social tales. In his brand new record Sans Soleil, Ceschi makes use of a full sonic arsenal: from alternative hip-hop verses that sting with precision to folk eulogies fit for gatherings by the porch light, it all delivers somber realities. Ceschi and his array of collaborators hold nothing back as they comment on today’s political tensions, state of the media, inner-city conditions, and how identity gets muddled in it all. Take a track like “Incesticide (feat. Open Mike Eagle, P.O.S, Onry Ozzborn, Factor Chandelier, Mo Niklz)” which showcases Ceschi and his collaborators alternating spitfire verses to the might of a percussive electronic beat, the back and forth recalling the glory of ‘80s hip-hop groups. “Christ on a Cross” by comparison is a heartfelt track that uses an acoustic guitar chord progression to tell an urban tale of religious ambiguity, the tragedy of faith exposed. The stories found in Sans Soleil hit hard, the way music should. Catch Ceschi Ramos at Middle East in Cambridge on September 1st. We are streaming “Yoni’s Electrocardiographs (feat. Yoni Wolf)” for you below. - Rene Cobar





A Case of Mistaken Identity debuts with aggressive record "Doomed to Shred"

Like a triple shot of your favorite espresso, Boston’s A Case of Mistaken Identity is jolting your heart into near tachycardia for the week power through. The band’s brand new record Doomed to Shred promises to provide post-punk revival enthusiasts with a killer dose of noise. The sonic whirlwind of arpeggiating guitars, ruckus drums and saw-toothed basslines peaks with vocals that blend punk speed with nu-metal aggression. Tracks like “Overtones” summon the early days of Rage Against the Machine, while the electric guitar that solos in “Outside” is bound to possess you. The group is an accident waiting to happen, the kind that does not allow you to look away. We are streaming the energetic punk track “Reset” for you below. - Rene Cobar





Clairo's star rises quickly with debut record, show set for XL Center 08.04

If you have not heard of Boston’s Clairo, you soon will: the young artist is seeping into the pages of major publications like The Guardian with her debut record Immunity. Clairo is set to seriously shake up the pop hierarchy with her lively brand of synth-pop music. Don’t just imagine synth-driven tunes, picture energetic indie-rock guitar riffs, groovy drumbeats and the reverb-tinged vocals of a young woman ready to let her emotions spill across the mainstream. Clairo’s record is a sonic chameleon taking on the best colors of today’s music landscape: Immunity has the trap beats that currently surge in Chicago, the electro-rock bubbling in New York City and the ever-vibrant pop glaze of Los Angeles. You will want to catch this artist before she is out of reach, and the XL Center in Hartford is the place to do that on August 4th. We are streaming the red hot track “Bags” from the new record below. - Rene Cobar





Fire in the Field delivers a sticky-sweet summer single, plays Jewel Music Venue 08.09

The duality of Boston's Fire in the Field is overwhelming: the sharp contrast between the group's sensual lyrics and killer rock riffs is a recipe for a complete mind takeover. The funk flows abundantly in the band's latest single "Under the Sun" as a groovy drum beat and stylish electric guitar strums flourish. The panache with which the lead vocals switch from a swagger-filled modulation to sensible falsettos recall the glory of Prince's '80s heyday. The band delivers a single gooey with style and confidence, and it is bringing all of that to the Jewel Music Venue in Manchester, NH on August 9th. We are streaming the new single for you below. - Rene Cobar
