Bees Deluxe jam something sweet in new single "Nitro"

Sending us to a much-needed weekend, Boston’s Bees Deluxe jams something sweet in the group’s new single “Nitro” featuring the chops of drummer, producer, composer Poogie Bell who keeps a delicious groove going. “Nitro” features bluesy guitar licks and smooth vocals that soothe and mesmerize, something like sparkly spilled honey. The track has a fun Southern feel to it: a relaxed summer single that whisks us away to a place of comfort, maybe somewhere where we can dance alone. Is the world a better place with music in it? When you listen to “Nitro,” it sure seems that way; stream the new single below for a better weekend. - Rene Cobar

Alex and the People debut contrasting singles "Broken Elevator" and "Waitin' for My Train to Come"

Boston’s Alex and the People are grooving their way toward the light at the end of the tunnel, loud as can be. The group has a dual single release that is one side dance-crazed rock ‘n’ roll and one side folk acoustic serenity. One could say the music provides a much-needed duality for the varying mood shifts we face these days. “Waitin' for My Train to Come” is short and sincere, revealing in each lyric patience and acceptance that only wisdom grants. “Broken Elevator” is a heightened song, laced with funky electric guitar riffs and even funkier rhythms. The song is an anthem for whatever you want to relate it to, with slick solos for your imagination. The release, begs you to choose your current mood, for us, it is “Broken Elevator” streaming below. - Rene Cobar

Carli & the Dark's dream folk details night visions on "Mimi"

“Mimi,” the debut single by dream folk project Carli & the Dark, firmly establishes artist Carli Naff’s aptitude for magically realistic songwriting over the course of an atmospheric four-minute sonic novella, rendering hazy recollections of an evening in a manner that seems like an oracle’s visions. Gradually shifting from the minimalism of guitar arpeggios to a a full band, as sparse percussion and slide guitar enter the fold, Naff’s vocal performance retains its distant-yet-powerful quality before coming to an abrupt, forlorn stop, echoing into the recesses of the night as quickly as they manifested. With an equal emphasis on electric folk and dream-pop production, this track is recommended listening for fans of Andy Shauf and Songs: Ohia alike — give it a listen below.

Gam debuts butter-smooth record "Moments and Spirals"

Boston’s Gam is a silky smooth group with a short and sweet EP we recommend highly. Moments and Spirals opens up with “Every Second Levitates,” a funky track that unravels elegantly: the guitars range from crisp-clean to wah-tinged and swirl around warm vocals, and snappy beats. “Wait a Little” leans on its slow rhythm and oozes jazziness steady while “Sunkissed Lovers” has a serene ambiance and an R&B groove perfect for a sweet wind-down. The band is just taking flight, but already its path looks promising, and its musical colors splendid. Stream “Every Second Levitates” below to join the journey. - Rene Cobar
