Don’t miss the new gnarly space rock EP from The Rupert Selection

Boston’s post-rock trio The Rupert Selection are one of the few bands in New England that can mash hard, progressive rock and ambient space noodles into a signature sound. Their newest EP Modern Playground Medicine, plays out like a soundtrack to a space-age action movie; it’s one part blistering, jagged rock and roll, one part ambient weirdness. The trio somehow manage to channel hard/space rock bands like Quicksand and Failure while simultaneously displaying their influence in the landscapes of Stanley Kubrick, ultimately showcasing an effortless comfortability within their own unique vision. Get sucked into the vacuum of Modern Playground Medicine below. -Charley Ruddell





“Foreclosure” is the haunting debut album of Michi Tassey side project Nature Shots

The debut release from singer/songwriter Michi Tassey of Nature Shots is as haunting and spacious as its title suggests. Foreclosure is an exercise in both patience and resilience within its cavernous landscape, employing a slow-burn, textural approach from start to finish. Tassey’s vocal harmonies, layers of acoustic sounds, and intimate dialogues call comparisons to emotive songwriters like Laura Marling and the ladies of Warpaint. What serves as the foundation of Foreclosure is an innate and peaceful simpleness, an inward migration from her role as frontwoman for the feverish indie rock/jazz group People Like You. Get lost in the meditation of Foreclosure below. -Charley Ruddell





The Ballroom Thieves release bluesy, politically charged single “Do Something”

It’s been exactly one year since the presidential inauguration, one endlessly stressful and tumultuous year at that. This is no coincidence to Boston’s three piece indie/folk rock outfit The Ballroom Thieves, who released their new single “Do Something”, a bluesy, simmering plea to the abhorrent administration that currently occupies the White House. The band detailed in a statement to Baeble Music their feelings behind the new song:

"Now a year has passed and it's apparent that the patience we once championed is wholly wasted on an egomaniacal president who cares for nothing but his own enrichment. As such, the meaning behind this song has shifted with the times and it now stands as a letter for you, to him, from us. Patience has become a virtue of yesterday, and time's up."

Zeus Springsteen are the 90s College rock band of today

Burlington, VT, mostly known for its University which spawned Phish, is a bustling college town full of heady young people and a burgeoning music scene. Enter Zeus Springsteen, a Burlington based power trio rooted in the endearing jangliness and lyrically clever sensibilities of a so called “college rock” band- though their sound begs to question when they’re from. Their eponymous debut album sounds more akin to R.E.M than OCS, exploring the popular sound of yesteryear college rock; steadfast grooves and fuzzy guitar riffs are littered all over the album, woven within tightly knit and smart arrangements. Perhaps the most identifying quirk of Zeus Springsteen are the melodic, yet abstract stories they tell (not unlike Robert Pollard’s), most notably on the cheeky “Joey Is a Robot”. Stream their new album below. -Charley Ruddell





Garage rockers The Maxims release peculiar video for “Endless Mind”

Three piece garage rock outfit The Maxims made their debut last summer with the release of their eponymous EP, a collection of five songs that showcase their reverence to the retro sound of classic garage rock and soul. Steeped in the sounds of gritty guitars and swirling organs, The Maxims is as brash as it is sly, drifting between foot-stomping blues numbers to cool-headed 60s swagger. Last week, The Maxims released a grainy, peculiar music video for the EP’s first song, “Endless Mind”, which you can watch below. -Charley Ruddell
