Fault sets a fierce pace in latest pop-punk single "KIDS"

New Bedford’s Fault opens up its latest single “KIDS” with a furious pace that captures the listener’s attention quickly. The song’s dynamic guitar riffs and acrobatic drum fills create a high-speed sonic pathway for the fierce lead vocals of Sandra Cardoso, summoning the best elements of pop-punk music. The breakdowns and choruses in the song are the mosh-anthems that are oh so sorely missed in contemporary music today; long live 2003! The group is super-charged having just finished a string of shows at home. With members from New Bedford and Providence in the band, there is no doubt New England will hear much more from this group soon. We are streaming “KIDS” below to get a head start. - Rene Cobar

Amanda Palmer debuts provocative music video for "Drowning in the Sound"

Boston’s Amanda Palmer released There Will Be No Intermission back in March, of the twenty tracks on the record “Drowning in the Sound” always stood above them all. The sharp orchestral changes led by disjointed piano strains provide the canvas for Palmer to paint inconvenient portraits of society with her lyrics. Amanda tackles tough subjects like abortion, climate change, and today’s political whirlwind of division with both sophistication and a much-needed crudeness. The music video for the single is a dance movement spectacle of the turmoil within. Beautifully orchestrated by Coco Karol and directed by Michael Pope, the “Drowning in the Sound” music video is an elegant portrayal of inner turbulence in the face of difficult and personal decisions. The video begs to be viewed and felt with the same intensity it was created; it is art the way art should always be: provocative. We are streaming the music video for “Drowning in the Sound” below. - Rene Cobar





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
