Oh Malô bring their soulful and dreamy sound to Great Scott on 8/26

A book review of one of Murukami's novels once said his work was influenced by so many writers it ended up being incredibly original. There's some truth to that description, and it might just apply to Boston band Oh Malô as well. They have sound that's very difficult to pin the tail on, but perhaps taking an index of the components and parts would help. On their latest LP, As We Were their guitars are deeply atmospheric with a light psych feel. The vocals are deeply soulful, and wouldn't feel out of place on any RnB track. The rhythm section, though, is downright muscular, emboldening the sound with an alt or even prog-rock flavor.  The easiest comparison to make would be to Local Natives, but that doesn't help much either, considering they to deftly evade most categorization also. Suffice to say, Oh Malô make quality music that sounds familiar and fresh all at once. You can see them live at Great Scott on 8/26. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging New England artists - check it out!


Plainclothes play O'Brien's Pub tonight (8.16)!

Plainclothes play a brief, fast paced brand of emo/punk that’s reminiscent of emo staples American Football and modern punk contemporaries Joyce Manor. The three-piece employs the use of intricate math inspired guitar parts on their debut album Dog Logic, which was released last year on Counter Intuitive Records. Its lyrics are a mature and honest look into their young lives, while analyzing the moments that helped shape them during their formative years. Plainclothes waste no time on the 18 minute record, packing songs less than two minutes long with intelligent reflections and references to philosophers such as Immanuel Kant. The Boston-based act play O’Brien’s pub tonight (8.16)! - John Honan

Folk-pop duo Dear June releases new EP, kicks off tour at Red Room on 8/18

Folk-pop duo Dear June have a new EP due out in August and were recently nominated them in our best-of New England poll, so now's a great time to get caught up on the pair. Their previous Fences EP nailed down the fundamentals crucial to solid songwriting.  The project hangs it hat on understated multi-instrumental arrangements, simple melodies and most notably the harmonization of Liz Ziebarth's and Justin Kelley's voices. The two sing together for long stretches across the LP, and form a sum that's greater than its (already great) parts. It's the emotional and romantic quality of their male and female voices combined that adds what either of their voices can't contribute individually. We're excited for their Come Around EP due out 8/18, don't miss the release party that same night at The Red Room Cafe on, before they go on tour. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
