Buzz Alert: The Rupert Selection Releases New EP, Baseball Practice

The Rupert Selection is a progressive alt-rock power trio from Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA that has curated not only a spellbinding musical vibe, but a darkly intriguing visual style, bridging the multimedia gap.  They're strong sense of narrative and technical skill is plainly apparent in their latest video for "Tree Hands", the opening track on Baseball Practice.  Opening with a haunting soundscape, the EP continues with tight, mixed-meter grooves on "Moon Cats in Taxi Cabs", and consistently progresses through a tale of provocative songwriting and musical prowess.  Check out The Rupert Selection on Bandcamp here, and experience "Tree Hands" below, a music video that will likely become an early favorite for our "Best of 2017" list. -Brian Varneke





Saint Pé's "Fixed Focus"

Black Lips guitarist Ian Saint Pé released a solo album this month utilizing the kind of punk and garage influences that provided his parent band acclaim. Fixed Focus is twelve tracks of jangly, distorted guitars, driving rhythms, and a kind of belligerent vocal performance that instantly conjures indie rock talk-singers like Kurt Vile. The album offers a variety of song constructions, from the slower, melodic, 90s alt rock style of “As of Late” to the rapid and forceful punk aesthetic of “Spun and Spurn,” Saint Pé works within the sonic limitations of his own musical tradition to craft a collection of songs that pushes its boundaries.
