Drowned in Sound: FaltyDL - In the Wild
                                       
                         
August 2014
Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

The Sharpest takes an indefinite break as drummer moves to Calgary

After announcing an indefinite hiatus and playing their last show for the foreseeable future, I would like to say congratulations to the Sharpest on a successful run – and good luck to drummer Matt Huszar as he tries out something new in Calgary! In Amherst, Massachusetts, the band became a staple of basement shows and had fans throughout the Pioneer Valley, especially at UMass Amherst. I had the honor of playing alongside the psychedelic indie trio at both my former band Red Panda’s album release show in 2013, during which they broke a television onstage, and at my high school graduation party, where their set was promptly ended by the police. I’ve been a fan ever since a friend showed me “She's Painting” four years ago, and the guys’ take on math rock certainly inspired a lot of our band’s writing. Although the band is calling it quits for now, you can still check out their catalog over at Bandcamp and hope that we haven't officially heard the last from them.

Diarrhea Planet "Platinum Girls"

Okay, at this point Diarrhea Planet is hanging on the "Emerged" side of the playground, but we couldn't resist posting this music video that premiered on NYLON last Friday. It just feels so good to have some local riff-raff on a national stage. "Platinum Girls" will be on their upcoming EP "Aliens in the Outfield," due to be released November 18th.  While it's shot at the original Pete and Pete house and features the Mr. Tastee of our dreams, our favorite part is the drummer's GBV t-shirt.  Because the devil is in the details.  -Terra James-Jura

Jenna Paone proves herself on debut album "Hammers and Strings"

Boston’s Jenna Paone is gearing up to release her debut album, Hammers and Strings, on September 30, with a release party at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall on the first of October. Having spent time studying at Boston’s Berklee College, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and Michigan’s Interlochen Arts Academy, Paone has crafted her own sound somewhere between jazz club headliner and adult alternative radio staple. Highlights include the catchy, horn-driven “Prove It” and the wary tango “Got Myself a Gun.” Be sure to give the whole disc a listen on September 30 – you won’t regret it. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)
