Boston indie rock trio blindspot plays at Great Scott on 12.20

The soaring rock songs of Boston trio blindspot are serious yet warm. Enlivened by frontwoman Alexa Economou's Nicks-like voice, such drum-pounced tracks as "I Won't Let Your Heart Break" (streaming below) and "Lay Me Down" uplift even as they stir, seeking happiness while still considering such hardships as disappointment and heartbreak. Pleasantly, though, the 2012-formed group portrays the inherent messiness of life with elegance, moving the listener while expressing what he/she sometimes struggles to. Blindspot plays at Great Scott in Allston, MA on 12.20. - Zach Weg


Radiator Hospital Opening for The Max Levine Ensemble at PhilaMOCA Nov. 24

After a packed tour schedule over the last couple months, Radiator Hospital is ready for some home cooking tonight at PhilaMOCA. Their latest release, a 7” split with recent tour mates Martha, captures the band’s penchant for creating music that wields endearing, exposed narratives that transplant listeners into a universally personal space with tightly coiled energy that springs you into action. It finds a way to hit home, while getting listeners to go somewhere. With unfiltered lyrical angst meshing with a gritty instrumental determination, Littler combines contemplations with a steady decisiveness. And armed with a new record Backlash, Baby, which was just released via Lame-O Records, DC pop-punk trio The Max Levine Ensemble completes the billing.

New Video: "Morning" (Live - Swell Tone Session) - Abi Reimold

Filmmaker Bob Sweeney and Shana Hartzel direct and deliver a layered, captivating video in a dark and drafty wooded area as sing-songwriter Abi Reimold explores “Morning” in this Swell Tone Session. Found on the Forget EP, this live version takes the stirring looped guitar, and combines it with Reimold’s hauntingly heartfelt vocals as the choral sounding background vocals mesh with chilling warmth. The result is breathtaking.


Tara Beier Wraps Recording, Gently Rocks Hugh's Room

Vancouver-born Tara Beier is an impressive tour-de-force - actor, director, and one hell of a singer-songwriter. Last year, Beier independently released her debut EP, Purple Trees, which was met with great reception and put her on the map as one of Canada’s unique folk acts. Beier’s combination of styles and sounds, ranging from simple acoustic ballads to catchy pop-like melodies prove that she can take any vibe and truly make it her own. The song Mayan Sun in particular has a sound that just sticks in your head. Earlier this year she recorded her upcoming album,  Hero & the Sage (release yet to be dated), and released the title track. It’s got a smooth and memorable acoustic melody that helps show off Beier’s impressive vocal range and talent. If I were you, I’d make sure to check out Tara Beier along with The Silverthorns at Hugh’s Room on November 30th.

Premiere: Teens in Trouble - Santa Monica

Teens in Trouble is a brand-new indie pop/rock band fronted by San Francisco-based singer/songwriter Lizzie Cuevas. Their debut single, Santa Monica will release this fall on Bandcamp and is armed with lovelorn lyrics, dreamy vocal effects and some serious ‘60s girl group harmonies. With pop punk band Sputterdoll and 8-bit rock duo The Glowing Stars already to her name, Lizzie is no stranger to the San Francisco Bay Area music scene

Santa Monica will be available for free on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and Apple Music on November 25, 2015. Fans will be able to pre-order the Teens in Trouble 7" vinyl on Bandcamp which includes "Santa Monica" and bonus track "Simple." Vinyl orders are expected to ship January 2016.

¨I was born and raised in the San Francisco and have lived in the Bay Area for my whole life except the time I lived in Santa Monica for a year in 2013. It's a city that holds a special place in my heart and time felt like it slowed down while I was there, in a good way.¨ - Lizzie Cuevas
