First Frost Releases Self-Titled Debut EP

Defying definitive genre classification, Boston-based quartet, First Frost (formerly Foliage), has released a debut EP that feels more like a multi-movement work than an indie-rock album.  As a songwriting duo, Lauren Koppelman and Morgan Browne combine elements of shoegaze and psych/experimental rock with sleek pop leanings, creating an original tapestry of sound that is all and none of the influences that comprise them.  Check out the EP below, and weather the Winter with First Frost. -Brian Varneke

 





Colbis the Creature Plays O'Brien's Pub 1/18

 With their self-titled debut, Colbis the Creature have released an EP, perfectly balanced between the catchy and the provocative.  Seeming to fully understand the importance of tension-release, combining tasteful dissonance with memorable vocal melodies, Colbis offers their new fans a record meant to be played loud and disruptively.  If intelligent lyrics are your thing, Nick Caliendo will gladly oblige with solid offerings throughout, although the highlight is closing track "James Dean".  Join these suburban Boston boys at O'Brien's Pub on 1/18 with Nox and Snowhaus. -Brian Varneke

 





New Haven's Olive Tiger Releases Impressive Debut, Until My Body Breaks

 Love standard fare indie rock, but wish there was something more?  Enter Olive Tiger, a prolific songwriting trio, featuring non-standard instrumentation of orchestral strings, electronics, and more.  Their debut album Until My Body Breaks expands on indie/pop sensibilities to create something new.  At times heavily orchestrated, while keeping at its core a simple and compelling singer/songwriter feel, Olive Tiger keeps you on your toes, throughout.  Check them out at Cafe Nine in New Haven on 2/17 with Xenia Rubinos. -Brian Varneke

 

 





Horse Mode Releases New EP Defenestrator

Defenestrator (noun):  1) one who throws a person or object out a window. 2) a DC comic book superhero, who carries around a window so he can throw people through it (that's a real thing). 3) the latest EP from Lowell, MA indie/math rockers, Horse Mode.  Window breaking aside, the eclectic quartet have crafted an impressive release, weaving together multiple genres and influences to create an original and unique flavor.  Filled with syncopated grooves and mixed meter prog elements, Defenestrator will keep you engaged and thoroughly entertained. -Brian Varneke
