bellwire’s new single “Dreamin’” is a modern take on the Everly Brothers

If the chorus of Boston-based bellwire’s new single sounds familiar, it’s because it is. The classic repetition of the word “dream” comes from the Everly Brothers song “All I Have To Do Is Dream,” but that is where the similarities between these two tracks end. bellwire’s take on this song is dark, stripped down, and is more comparable to the likes of Patti Smith than the pop duo (maybe not sonically, but definitely lyrically.) Tyler Burdwood, the lead vocalist of bellwire, is currently on a solo tour with Massachusetts-based Jake McKelvie, of The Countertops. - Lilly Milman





New Guitar-Pop Project Brother Toaster to play The Great Scott July 18th

Brother Toaster, a new solo project by Boston local, Sean Galbraith, brings a new appreciation for music that is genuine. Zen Riddles, his June 2017 album release is exactly that. While it is in some ways classic guitar pop in its catchy melodies, garage-y rhythms, and a wandering, psych influence, it is not intense in any of these characteristics. The music sits somewhat quietly behind the vocals, showing a clear presentation of lyrics. In this subtle decision, Brother Toaster shows a pride in lyricism and personal creation similar to singer-songwriter stylings. Still, it remains a fun guitar project, only enhanced by Galbraith's pride in his own work. See the band live at The Great Scott July 18th. -Allie Miller

STIG Hits the Road With Summer Tour Dates

 Somewhere between the minimalism of Vulfpeck and the virtuosity of Snarky Puppy lies Boston-based funk ensemble STIG.  Adding their own flavor to the funk revival scene, STIG keeps it smooth and sexy, interesting without ever overstaying their welcome.  The band is currently on the back end of their Summer tour (hitting Sea Dog Brewing Co in Bangor, ME on 7/20), promoting their upcoming EP, Downtown Tom.  Check out the video for the title track below.  -Brian Varneke

Beeef to Play Great Scott August 17th

We doubt if there is a town with more gripes than Boston. That seems to be the reason for the abundance of pissed-off garage rock bands like Allston's newest stars: Beeef. Since the release of their sarcastic 2017 release A Beeef CD, they received high praise from their own music scene, and celebrated local publications like Allston Pudding and Boston Hassle. That being said, we believe they are deserving of the attention, with charismatic, surfy guitars and jaunty rhythms. A Beeef CD is angsty, wronged, and heartbroken, but in all the right ways. This release shows a band that has found its place among its surrounding punks, and we hope they stay there. See them at Great Scott with Ian Sweet and Baby! on August 17th. -Allie Miller
