Pensive mornings have met their match in Max Grazier's new record "Warm Enough Not To Care"

Your weekend playlist can get a boost from the music of Portsmouth’s Max Grazier. The New Hampshire singer-songwriter’s latest EP Warm Enough Not To Care is evenly spread with a sonic marmalade of dynamic acoustic and electric guitar riffs, stupendous vocal harmonies, and subtle drums to sway to, all tinged with a bedroom-production syrup so sweet. All three tracks of Grazier’s new record feel like confessions, not meant to be released, deeply personal, sung with passion, and played to the wave of pseudo-surf guitar ambiance. Pensive weekend mornings just got a lot better, in that kind of moody-basking way, thanks to the music of Max Grazier. The trombone finale in “Paper Eyes” is exquisite, let it build up below. - Rene Cobar





Cindy Latin mixes elegance and urban flair in new single "In a Year From Now"

Matching the splendor of the tasteful instrumentation that accompanies her, Boston’s Cindy Latin lets her vocals soar in her latest single “In a Year From Now.” Yes, the drums flash some nearly-acrobatic fills, the bass grooves deliciously, and the trumpets are resonant, but it is Cindy’s passionate expressions that captivate, switching with ease from flowing verses to soulful choruses, she commits to them wholly. Cindy Latin strikes that perfect balance between an elegant soul singer and hardened street lady, similarly as another gal people may know of named Alicia Keys. “In a Year From Now” drips with honest curiosity about the future, and easily creates a narrative that we can all relate to, Cindy Latin channels the message well. Without further ado “In a Year From Now” is streaming below for your listening pleasure. - Rene Cobar

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





Dan Webb and the Spiders celebrate ten years of activity with new record "Be Alright"

Great garage rock can never die, not in ten years, not in a hundred, Boston’s Dan Webb and the Spiders are just one of the many examples of the genre’s lasting power. The four-piece band’s brand new record Be Alright continues the group’s sonic race, displaying along the way the dauntless guitar solos, reverb-soaked choruses, and enthusiastic drum beats that have characterized the band for the last ten years. Be Alright has both energy and variety with tracks like “Best Regret” displaying the remnants of pop punk’s influence on bands active during the end of the last decade. “Notice” is an unexpectedly slow track with delicate piano notes, a bit of reflection perhaps for the group. Dan Webb and the Spiders have got in their hands now a record that reflects their storied history and serves up their music more refined than ever before. Dan Webb and the Spiders’ music video for the title track is streaming below. - 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
