Snowmine Interview + Show Review @ Great Scott 9/16

The term ‘independent’ or ‘indie’ is a word thrown around these days in a musical context that can have many implications. It is frequently employed as an adjective (much to my chagrin) to blanket a genre of perhaps less-produced and non-traditional sounding artists, a categorization of artist that is either unsigned or signed to a […]

“Buttercups” by Nai Harvest

The boys from Nai Harvest, the UK-based indie duo of Ben Thompson & Lew Currie, were nice enough to share their latest tune off Flower a 12″ split with label mates Playlounge. Since the release of their debut full length Whatever back in March of 2013, NH has gone under quite the face lift, making the progression from “emo revival” punksters to grunge dripping 90′s influenced shoegazers. The latter can be heard on their most recent and highly successful Hold Open My Head EP released via Dog Knights (UK) and Boston’s very own Topshelf Records. Buttercups follows the same transitions meandering through distorted gritty power chords, crashing symbols and atmospheric overtones all sandwiched together by Thompson‘s hallowed vocals and impassioned lyrics. The track leaves us with a warm glow under our chins and a sweet taste in our mouths. Look out for these two in the near future!

An eclectic crowd filled Allston’s Great Scott on Monday evening for jazz-fusion trio Trioscapes’ first set in Boston since the fall of 2012. Preceding the trio’s set were local prog rockers Protean Collective, whose heavy-hitting riffs and unapologetic bass grooves demanded the room’s attention. Guitarist Steph Goyer’s sweeping runs served as both a much-needed melodic […]

Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band Show Review (11/24)

This past sunday I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band at the intimate Brighton Music Hall for the last stop of his fall tour, and it was a goddamn treat. Kevin Devine is the antithesis of the self-pleasing, hedonistic rock star portrayed on the covers of magazines and billboard […]


Young the Giant Show Review (11/14)

With the days leading up to it being brutally cold, Young The Giant’s intimate Cafe 939 performance this past Thursday night was just what the Boston community needed to warm up and get out of the house. Frontman Sameer Gadhia noted midway through the set that upon arriving in the city on Wednesday, the only […]
