CD of the Month: Tom Abbott - Puppet Boy

The CD of the Month for June hands down has to go to Tom Abbott of Wrentham, MA. Puppet Boy is from start to finish a sonic collage that captivates song after song. The singer-songwriter has crafted a record that shines with folk-rock splendor and flashes its highlights of blues, punk, and lo-fi production throughout fourteen riveting tracks. The New England artist gifts something to each listener: “Fake Punk” is a hard and edgy sonic thrill ride while “(It’d Be Nice) to Feel Wanted Again” is rich with sincerity, a vulnerable track made for broken hearts. Congrats to Tom Abbott for creating a pristine example of New England’s rich folk-rock history. Enjoy Puppet Boy streaming below. - Rene Cobar





Tom Abbott's "Puppet Boy" is a fantastic sonic collage, show upcoming at Wrentham Town Common 07.28

No better way to start your weekend than with the upbeat acoustic brilliance of Wrentham's Tom Abbott! The singer-songwriter has released his sophomore full-length record Puppet Boy, a collection of indie-folk tracks dipped in just enough lo-fi-production waters to provide a raw sound irresistible. The vibrant acoustic guitar phrases and upbeat drum patterns of "Hello" have the candid indie-folk spirit of bands like The Decemberists while "8 Hours" kicks off with serrated guitar riffs à la lo-fi star-of-the-moment Justus Proffit. In "Happy," Abbott bares his soul in a cathartic blues-tinged song that showcases his vocal magnetism to the tune of elegant piano chimes. The fuzzy bassline and fractured guitar arpeggios of "Fly on the Wall" are pure indie-rock goodness. The record finishes with the aptly-titled "Goodbye" a track that keeps the sonic sprint going, flashing sweet harmonies as it races to the finish line. Tom Abbott can be proud of a record that encompasses a variety of genres from punk in "Fake Punk" to alt-country in "Lemonade," treating everyone to something exquisite. Tom will be playing at the Wrentham Town Common July 28th, sure to unleash his sonic collage in a must-see performance. "Hello" is streaming below. - Rene Cobar
