Vypers - EP Release Party @ The Baby G 03.09

Brand new single from garage/psych band Vypers. “Deepsave” begins at a slithering pace with heavy drums and exotic noises filling the air. The energy is a more subdued than other recent releases from these guys. The change of pace is nice though as it makes you wonder what might be around the corner. This tune is still proves to be complete chaos like you would expect from Vypers. They are having an EP Release Party on March 9th at The Baby G with a stacked undercard featuring Brenda and Jean Daddy. – Kris Gies





Assassin of Youth reconstruct shoegaze on newest EP

The small indie tape label New Perfume Records out of Boston have a knack for finding compelling underground artists with little to no online presence (David Poole and Afraid of Storms to name a couple). The newest release from Saguiv Rosenstock, the shoegaze weirdo behind Assassin of Youth, is the most recent example of New Perfume gold. A MYSTERIOUS HUM… WHERE IS IT FROM? is the newest release by Assassin of Youth, a four track EP that challenges the shoegaze status quo by incorporating elements of fast punk and cheeky humor into the typically vast and bleak atmosphere of the genre. A MYSTERIOUS HUM is a nod to contemporary noise rock melody makers like DIIV and Beach Fossils, while maintaining the innate weirdness of the Boston underground scene. Stream their new EP below and check out more from New Perfume here. -Charley Ruddell





Animal Flag frontman Matthew Politoski releases sprawling solo album

Matthew Politoski, frontman of the beloved Boston indie rock group Animal Flag, has released a sprawling instrumental solo album titled 8 Emanations, his first in over two years. The instrumental drones on 8 Emanations are entirely devoid of lyricism, or melody for that matter, and instead focus on ethereal and enveloping soundscapes, built using various acoustic and electronic instruments. Politoski’s newest work draws on influences ranging from European electronica and witch house music, displaying intuitive structures to darkly emotive and deeply stirring harmonic movements. The result is an incredibly warm and strangely inviting body of work that will take any Animal Flag fan by surprise. Stream and purchase 8 Emanations below, where all the proceeds will be donated to the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. -Charley Ruddell





Oakland dreamraver PASTEL GHOST heads to SXSW

Oakland-based artist PASTEL GHOST is a synth-pop artist with a shoegazer's agenda—a combination not often found in the electronica scene. Operating under a genre that she calls “dreamrave,” her music is ethereal and elusive. Her single “POSSESSION” (streaming below) is just one example of how she layers her slippery vocals over driving synth beats to create a seductive and mysterious sound unlike any other. Effortlessly cool and complex, PASTEL GHOST is definitely one to keep an eye on as she works on recording and releasing a follow-up LP to her debut project, ABYSS. She will be making her way down to SXSW this year, with a showcase on March 15th. - Lilly Milman





Sundrifter release heavy, plodding new album “Visitations”

Hard rock trio Sundrifter have released their newest album Visitations, a full length followup to 2016’s Not Coming Back. The Boston three piece are most notable for their heavy approach and unrelenting walls of sound, reminiscent of grunge bands like Soundgarden and the Melvins, while also co-opting a uniquely melodic quality found in popular hard rock bands like Muse and Queens of the Stone Age. Visitations plods and stomps in a relentless march employing riff after riff of Sabbath-esque mojo, where guitars and vocals are draped in fuzz and tinged with psychedelia. Check out Visitations below. -Charley Ruddell
