New England Music Awards Week: Bad Rabbits

To cap off New England Music Awards Week, we spoke to Salim Akram, guitarist of Boston’s own Bad Rabbits. Nominated for Best in State: Massachusetts, the nod comes at the end of a huge year for the band. The guys opened the inaugural Boston Calling Music Festival in May and played late night gigs like Jimmy Kimmel Live and the Arsenio Hall Show, and of course, released their debut album American Love. Next, the guys will take the stage at Warped Tour this summer. Here’s what Salim has to say about their crazy year.

Fax Holiday Release Big Fear

Last month, I posted an article hyping the long-awaited release of Fax Holiday’s new EP, Big Fear. This month, I’m wicked excited to be able to post a review of the EP. The Fax Holiday guys have definitely stepped-up their game with these songs--each one sounds incredibly polished and well-balanced. The band really let their emotions come through on this record; there’s much more feeling in these tracks than in previous recordings.

The one aspect that really sets Fax Holiday apart for me is their choice of instrumentation--I love their autoharp. That being said, “Ears and Teeth” is probably my favorite track from Big Fear. The jangle from the autoharp adds an eerie/hypnotic feel to this Elliott Smith-meets-Wilco tune.

You can stream (and download for only $4!) Big Fear on Fax Holiday’s bandcamp page. Check out their Facebook for band news and show announcements.
