Video for Reve's "Agency and Accountability"

Rêve, the Baltimore band once known as Playground Etiquette, have released a new video in advance of the remixing/mastering and partial re-recording of their album La Marionnette. On the heals of their The Joanne Sessions EP, recorded at the Joanne Trattoria in NYC, Rêve improves upon Playground Etiquette with more (somehow) shine and professionalism. "Agency and Accountability" demonstrates a great level of polish and improvement to the sound of a song that already had a solid sound. It's exciting to see a band, which already put so much effort and talent into everything they do, take it to the next level. Also, the video is kinda creepy, which is always good. --Natan Press

Sports Coach releases 2nd EP, plays Tuesday in Boston

Just a few weeks after releasing his debut, Hit The Showers, Sports Coach is back with another EP, Grab Your Balls and Get On The Court. This time around the NFL sound bites are sent to the bench but coach’s lo-fi charm remains the same and even a little hazier.  Several tracks suggest a poor performance on the field or court, but Sports Coach always tries to make it sound positive, as a good coach would. Coach sums it up quite well: “Poetry is dumb, no muscles needed."

-Hayden Karnitz, @hkarnutz

Sports Coach performs Tuesday at Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain, MA, with The Deli's artist of the month, Nathan Ventura.





Sean Eldon's imaginative psych pop, live at TT The Bear's on 01.11

My first exposure to Sean Eldon was an acoustic set at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, where we shared the stage a month or two ago. That was the first time I heard his song “I Never Heard Such Fuck” (streaming below). I didn’t know what to think at first, but I kept finding my self singing it, so you imagine my excitement when I heard the EP "Pulmones!" had been released. Partially a result of personal experiences with cancer in the family, the EP balances the anger, confusion, and bitterness of life’s far too real surprises. Punk in energy, psychedelic in imagination, Eldon has found a cool niche for himself. Manic sounding with honest, often colloquial lyrics, Pulmones! illustrates the painful growth a fresh Boston voice. Check out the EP here. All proceeds form the EP go to the American Cancer Society. Don't miss Sean's upcoming show at TT The Bear's in Cambridge on January 11. - Paul Jordan Talbot

Anthony Pirog's video for "The New Electric"

 Anthony Pirog may be the best electric guitarist on the East Coast, and his new album, Palo Colorado Dream, is his best work yet. The album covers as much ground as the electric guitar allows, and is impossible to describe in just a few words. One could call it "avant" something, like "jazz" or "indie," but what it really is is Anthony Pirog incarnate. The guitar has become an extension of the man, his technical brilliance limited only by his fantastic imagination. How Anthony found time to craft such a gem is a mystery, as he's the most in demand guitarist in the area, part of countless other projects. Yet craft this he did, and it's gorgeous, and he made a video to go along with it too. Check out the video below, and follow the link to the album above for more. Take some time with it; you wont be disappointed. --Natan Press





The Northerners release Virginia.

The soulful vocals of Ally Khoury bring a fullness to the already layered sound of guitar riffs, creating a modern indie rock sound to The Northerners' new EP Virginia. The five-song EP is reminiscent of a modern adaptation of the traditional folk, blues, and swing eras. Their album is available on iTunes. You can see The Northerners live on their October Tour through Virginia. --Hannah Brady
