Horse Jumper of Love triumphantly return to the Great Scott 7.12

Horse Jumper of Love: still slow, still sad, still one of Boston's biggest bands. Since the release of their 2016 self-titled EP they've been riding on a steady stream of positive reviews and constant bookings. As a result, much has been said about them, described by Consequence of Sound as incorporating "tempo and tone unwavering, like controlled breathing." Aside from sing-a-long tracks such as "Ugly Brunette" and "Bagel Breath" from their EP, they've also released "Orange Peeler," a thoughtful, shoegaze-ing journey through the band's early songwriting and consistent use of spacey-sounding feedback. Horse Jumper of Love is not going anywhere. They recently finished touring with Spencer Radcliffe and Everyone Else, and will play the Great Scott once again on July 12th.-Allie Miller



Sinnet opens for Low Cut Connie at Middle East on 08.04

Aaron Spransy, Kevin Junker, Thom Valicenti, and Matt Freake of Sinnet don’t take themselves too seriously on their new LP ‘Gentle Humor,’ a fuzzy indie pop project that captures the band’s laid-back personality. It’s easy to sit back and chill to tracks like “Mikey & The Land Of Inbetweeners” (streaming below) with their catchy choruses, mellow vocals, and loungy guitar riffs. After a spring tour that hit everywhere from NYC to Madison, the band will be opening for Low Cut Connie at Middle East on August 4th. - Lilly Milman

Deli Premiere: Jakals Drop New Video For Single "Homesick"

 Jakals is one of those bands that just reach out and grab you right from the first strum of a guitar. The Boston-based indie rockers are celebrating the recent release of their debut album Keep Mother Sane, a profound and melancholic portrait of the modern world with a depth and profundity rarely seen. We are thrilled to premiere "Homesick", the first single and video off of the new record.  According to the band, "'Homesick' is about the intense desire to find true contentment in a world dominated by technology, individualism, and isolation, only to realize that you are chasing a phantom."  Animated by Alec Huston of Warbird Creative, the video uses simple, repetitive images to convey the complex themes of the song.  Check out the video below and keep track of Jakals on the road here. -Brian Varneke


The Solars Bring New EP to O'Brien's 06.25

With their new EP Retitled Remastered, Boston psych/folk rockers The Solars assert themselves as masters of their craft.  Overflowing with memorable lyrics, impressive vocal harmonies, and tight, folksy grooves, the record flows seamlessly, evading strict categorization.  Their new single "Goddess of the Suburbs" is an ode to the discomfort and paranoia of being stuck in your skin when you wish you could be anywhere else.  Check it out below and catch The Solars live at O'Brien's on 6/25 with Littleboybigheadonbike and Mitch Van Bree. -Brian Varneke

Indie-Pop Newcomers Dang Clets Release Self-Titled EP

 Formed by three Californians transplanted in Boston, Dang Clets is new to the New England scene, but is wasting no time making a name for themselves. Their self-titled debut EP is instantly catchy and charming, with smooth, synth-laden jangle pop guaranteed to keep you relaxed and engaged from start to finish. Expect to see their name often in the next few years as they are definitely a band to watch. Check out their single "Lines" below and let us know what you think! -Brian Varneke
