New The Spirit Of The Beehive LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Hypnic Jerks is the latest album from The Spirit Of The Beehive, and is out now via Tiny Engines. Hovering between a laid-back, melodic cloud and dramatic shifts of intensity, the band finds a mechanism to bring down tensions without eliminating them. An eerie, warped element hangs in the periphery, creating a mesh between odd, groovy precision and gritty abruptness. You can catch The Spirit of the Beehive with Boston's Pile on Thursday, October 18 at The First Unitarian Church.


Oakmen recently released a double single called “Fake/Loop”. This is the follow-up to the indie rock band’s 2017 debut EP, "Tinted Window”.

Oakmen consists of Ted Collins (Vocals and Guitar), Devin Delany (Vocals, Bass, Synth), Steve SanPietro (Drums), and Manuel Sanchez (Guitar & Synth).


Gambler's share their indie pop in debut EP “Corinthian Order”

After honing their skills through a variety of production work and live show appearances, Brooklyn indie pop-rockers Gamblers have released the debut EP Corinthian Order (streaming below). The opening title track makes use of retro Farfisa-style keys, plucked electronic sounds and unadorned guitar arpeggios as a softly sung tale of breakup builds towards its do-do-do denouement. “We're Bound To Be Together” masquerades outwardly as a buoyant uptempo rocker with Strokes-style churning guitars and Beatles-eque harmonies. A dichotomy is revealed as those words of love are meant to reflect an addict's blissful state while on drugs. “Heavenly Mouse Routine” leans on its forward march beat, buzzy synth texture and staccato plucked guitar to approximate the repetitiveness that afflicts humanity. “There Was A Window” builds off the bands' hip-hop production roots with percussive underpinnings serving an otherwise lo-fi/slacker rock approach. Closing track “The Selfish Bell” initially rocks harder through its chunky drum beat, distorted electric guitars and snaking bass line; falsetto vocals depict scenarios of self-imposed limitations against an expanding, near prog-rock-like composition. The EP is available for ordering via itunes as well as streaming on spotify. - Dave Cromwell

Jiants - "Odd Trouble", Playin' The Garrison 10.17

Fresh indie rock from Toronto; Jiants blends 90’s alt-rock with “modern indie sensibilities”. Their latest record “Odd Trouble” was released earlier this year. The title track leads off the album with a relaxed pace, in-the-pocket rhythm section and a vocal melody that could be a blend of Coldplay and Neil Young. It has some rural indie rock feels despite being straight from the city. Jiants will be opening for Restorations along with Wild Pink at the Garrison on October 17th. – Kris Gies
