Russian Baths share new single, play St. Vitus on 11/8

Creating their own quirky blend of noisy dual-guitar dreampop, Russian Baths share their latest single “Wrong” (streaming below) in advance of their debut full-length album Deepfake. A crisp, odd-tempo drum pattern and bassline set up momentary jolting guitars, introducing soft-spoken lyrics “what's that effect you hear? Keep it in control.” Elongated vocals emphasize the song's title with the refrain “I – was – wrong,” as atmospheric textures rise in the background, at times exploding, at times chiming like town square bells. A sonic ascention begins midway through this nearly 5 minute track, creating a wall of hammered guitar chords against the single word songtitle “wrong.” One more quite plateau is reached, as clean dual guitar interplay engages over a simple, basic drum beat. Deepfake is out on 11/8 and the band play their release show that night with like-minded noise rockers Bambara at St. Vitus. - Dave Cromwell





Willzyx demolishes in new record "The Raw Congenital Complex," plays Koto 11.13

Creepy and satisfying is the noise rock of Manchester, New Hampshire's Willzyx. For metal aficionados, the group's latest effort, The Raw Congenital Complex, is jam-packed with tracks that ooze with rage and demolish melodic structures. Take the furiously-paced track "Cauterized Eye" as a prime example of the band's tendency for bursts of distorted vocals, synthesized strains of doom, and eerie overtures. Other songs like "Cast Off" drift into more serene territories, and with patience and a hypnotizing guitar riff bubble into thick, steely-cold compositions. The band is a year-long Halloween special that is too damn creepy and good to pass up. The band's next gig is booked at Koto in Salem, Massachusetts, on November 13th. Listen to the mechanic bassline that leads "Calloused and Cynical" streaming below and drown in the math-rock madness. - Rene Cobar, photo by Selena Barker





Rachel Sumner releases haunting track "Between The Bars," plays Lizard Lounge 10.31

Boston's Rachel Sumner's 2019 has been quite eventful: April, June, August, and October single releases all worthy of recognition. The latest of these singles "Between The Bars" displays the singer-songwriter's trademark vocal melodies, known to haunt the mind with their atmospheric nature, giving way to graceful acoustic guitar solos tinged in a bluegrass spirit. The newest track from Sumner balances both light and dark sonic colors that elicit from the listener both hope and despair; the experience is all up to you. Perhaps perfect for the chilly and spirited night ahead, Rachel will be performing her haunting tracks at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge on October 31st. Stream "Between The Bars" by Rachel Sumner below. - Rene Cobar

The Crowleys - Jangly New Psych Single "Clarice"

The Crowleys are a psychedelic pop-rock band from Hamilton. They have figured out a way to effectively master that lo-fi garage sound while keeping the quality high and melodies catchy. Their new single “Clarice” has duel vocals and a medium paced jangle. The lyrics touch on “the uncertainty within yourself when dealing with mental health issues”. The Crowleys play This Ain’t Hollywood in Hamilton on November 6th along with Hot Garbage and Simply Saucer. – Kris Gies
