shiver. Plays O'Brien's 08.03

Hailing from Salem, Ma, shiver. is an eclectic mix of ambient dream pop and emo-infused indie rock.  Their latest release, 2016's Evergreen has a laid back vibe to it, but it's not afraid to get aggressive when needed.  With constantly catchy hooks, introspective lyrics, and unexpected grooves, shiver weaves an enthralling web.  It's an album that you instantly 'get' and yet, begs for a second listen.  Catch shiver live at O'Brien's Pub on 8/3 with oldsoul, Pushflowers, and Another Musician. -Brian Varneke

Elephants Play Great Scott 08.01

 It's been a little while since we checked in with Boston power pop/rockers Elephants and it seems as though they are continuing to establish themselves within the scene and develop a signature sound.  Formed in 2011, the band honors their namesake with a robust, full sound that mixes garage punk fuzz with indie pop vocal melodies.  Their latest release, 2016's Endless Arcade is a shining example of this, a forcefully melodic endeavor that explodes through its opening phrases and maintains a high energy through to its ending riffs.  Catch Elephants at Great Scott on Tuesday 8/1 with Partner and New Swears. -Brian Varneke

Dust From 1000 Years play Middle East w/ Horse Jumper of Love, Blue Smiley, Brittle Brian

Dust from 1000 Yrs are not trying to take themselves seriously. Despite their "serious" sound, which is at initially somber folk-influenced, they bring an attitude of practical joking to their group. From every album cover including a scrawled, messy font title, to their almost-vaporwave, intentionally off-putting social media, they are not trying with their image. However, this sense of humor offers a healthy counter to the band's usually slow and whiney music. With the release of DUST 2017, they push their joking one step further, with an album of entirely 80's synth-pop sounds. Still, there is a balance and individual statement made in this release. Even when the title of a track is called "Smoke Em Up" their is a melodic tone to the release which recalls the emotion of their earlier music. This new album may be silly, but it's also a way to watch a band that's always been a little funny enjoy being themselves. See them at the Middle East August 24th. -Allie Miller
