One Time Weekend is a funky carnival of sounds too good to pass up, plays BRYAC Black Rock 06.28

Letting its reggae and funk influences lead the way, the group from Collinsville, CT known as One Time Weekend has crafted a record you can move to. Weekend at the Circus is jam-packed with hip electric guitar solos, fun changes in tempo, rapid-fire vocals, and piano notes that shine among the carnival of sounds. The lead vocal melodies on tracks like “Gandalf” and “Cavity” have the magnetism of great orators like Sublime’s Bradley James Nowell or Gym Class Heroes’ Travie McCoy; the instruments move the party along with groovy basslines to spare. One Time Weekend’s summer tour continues with a stop at BRYAC Black Rock in Bridgeport, CT on June 28th. We are streaming “Cavity” below for your enjoyment. - Rene Cobar

Folk songstress Jeannie debuts with tender self-titled record, plays Union Tavern 06.29

The soft music of Boston’s Jeannie with its supple vocal melodies, entrancing acoustic guitar overtures, and pulsating cello foundations slowly leads the listener to a place familiar, a corner of the mind treasured. The indie-folk songstress is debuting with a self-titled EP suggestive of detachment from the hectic world, the atmospheric music lends itself to as much, the compassionate musical expressions float freely, and yet the lyrics center the themes back to people, relationships, love. Jeannie’s music is the perfect example of folk’s power of suggestion, the genre’s ability to produce beautiful sonic portraits recognizable to each listener in a unique way. Jeannie will be performing at Union Tavern in Somerville on June 29th, bringing the momentum of her premiere with her. See what you will when you listen to “in earnest” 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
