Kindling brings their shoegaze-y indie rock to Brighton Hall 1/18

 As their name suggests, there's definitely something incindiary about Easthampton-based band Kindling. Their songs are thick with a nasty, fuzz and feedback coating, paired against ethereal vocals that somehow manage to float above the firey instrumental whirlwind happening beneath them. Catch the band at Brighton Music Hall 1/18 playing with City of Caterpiller and The Saddest Landscape, and be sure to stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni

 

Buzz Alert: GYMSHORTS offer classic slacker punk vibes on latest release "Wet Willy"

With tracks like "Burrito" and "Browned Out," it's clear that slacker punks, GYMSHORTS, are not taking themselves all that seriously--but that's all part of the band's charm. With mellowed punk riffs, surf rock beats, riotous vocals, and a cheeky sense of humor, the group is kind of hard to not immediately fall in love with. Check out "BURRITO" off the band's latest release, Wet Willy, streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Neon pop group Mandaila set to play Higher Ground Ballroom 12/30

Madaila, a Burlington based group with powerful pop hooks and tasty synths, are making some seriously ripe-for-radio tunes. Armed with soulful vocal performances, infectious grooves and a dash of neon, the band's sound is catchy and distinctive, but is also free to convey a bit of darkness lingering under the shimmering, synth-y mass. Take a listen to the band below, and catch them playing Burlington's Higher Ground Ballroom with Arc Iris 12/30.-Olivia Sisinni
 

Jaw Gems bring trippy neo-soul to House of Blues

Jaw Gems, a group of four guys hailing from the upper reaches of New England--Portland, Maine--are producing some of the most refreshing neo-soul music out there. Planting themselves in the same vein as artists like Thundercat and Flying Lotus, the group crafts fat and funky instrumentals that edge toward the experimental side. They band effortlessly laces their trippy hip hop beats with strong jazz influences, and maybe the occasional transmission from Mars. Catch the band opening for Lettuce at the House of Blues 12/31, and in the meantime, stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni
