Behaviorist Announces New EP and Mercury Lounge Show

The Brooklyn-based band, Behaviorist, led by frontman Stephen Rhodes Chen, just announced the release of their debut, self-titled EP, self-titled. A close listen to the record reveals Rhodes Chen's social commentary and stream-of-consciousness thoughts on human interaction. The EP waddles between funk, experimental pop, and the highly stylized indie rock of elegant singer/songwriters from the past two decades. For a relatively young band still walking on the high of their sold-out release show at Pianos, this band is showcasing a lot of creative energy and interesting ideas - it's definitely worth a listen.  Behaviorist's first summer show will be at the Mercury Lounge on July 18th.





Luniere returns with vibrant sophomore record, plays release party at Blue 06.16

Portland, Maine's Luniere is releasing its sophomore album Leave The Light just in time for the vibrant New England summer. The band's blend of pop, rock, and folk is gorgeously displayed once again in this second entry to the group's discography. "Always" (streaming) for instance has a lax drum beat that accompanies exquisitely-timed electric guitar embellishments, a sweet hook, and a haunting chorus to finish off. The group graces pop, country, rock, and folk, it caresses these genres to produce tracks perfect for those easy-going summer evenings by the fire with friends, or for reflective times of solitude. The trio will be celebrating the release of their EP with a show in their hometown at Blue on June 16th, singer-songwriter Molly Ladd will be providing support. - Rene Cobar

Singer/songwriter Sabine Holler spills her heart out in "Mother of Transition"

Sabine Holler isn’t afraid to speak from her heart in her EP Mother of Transition: songs like “Everything I Want To Be” spill confessions to the tune of gorgeous guitar arpeggios and string-instrument embellishments. Holler can switch her vocal approach with ease from tender in “Filtered My Voice” to fierce in “Hanged Woman,” the last song boasting a killer drum beat. The artist seems entirely at ease in her indie-pop tunes, displaying the confidence of leading women of the genre such as Lorde and St. Vincent. “First Memory” is the singer/songwriter’s raging battle from the record, augmented with distortion, and streaming below, for your enjoyment. - Rene Cobar

Indie rockers Manager release surfy sophmore EP "Landline"

If Brooklyn-based Manager’s 2017 self-titled debut EP is chunky peanut butter, then this year’s follow-up Landline is creamy smooth. The band layers beautifully in songs like “Steven Tipton” (streaming) whose guitars create a surfy, relaxed vibe that slightly warps in the choruses. “Hybrid” has an upbeat drum pattern you cannot help but move to and distorted guitars that highlight the rock aspect of this group’s indie-rock vibe. The entire EP is decked with rich harmonies and jaunty melodies that, along with the music’s breezy ambiance, produce a suaver version of the sound that bands like Wavves offer. Manager has played at Pianos NYC on more than one occasion, and with the release of this EP, they are gearing up for a busy summer. - Rene Cobar

Andrew North's story is one worth telling, performance set for 06.21

The music of Andrew North is precisely what you would expect to listen to on a cheery Saturday night at your favorite Bean Town jazz club. As New England as a delicious cup of clam chowder or a walk by the seacoast, Andrew North's cheery piano melodies, and uplifting lyrics have that unifying feel to them; they evoke a strong sense of community. Backed by former bandmate and good friend Pete Casselman on drums, North stepped into a Burlington, VT studio to record Lost City, his first EP released in March that encompasses years of musical and personal discoveries. In “Out of Time” Casselman’s funky drumbeat drives North’s intricate jazz tunes while in “Go North” the upbeat tempo and tender piano embellishments ooze ardent devotion for the craft. The story of Andrew North is one of resilience, of returning to long lost passions, of acceptance and love. Andrew North’s story continues as he will perform June 21st at Market Days Music in Concord, NH. “Go North” is streaming for your enjoyment below. - Rene Cobar
