DOWNLOAD: Age Rings, “Millions of Americans” (mp3)
This song was recorded last weekend at a converted Civil War-era barn, and you can practically hear the woodgrain. Age Rings have yet to officially release a single song, but after listening to their previous demo for six months, we’ve already started thinking of them as Boston’s answer to Wilco. And we’re not just saying that ’cause guitarist Will Spitz sits three cubes over. (Which puts us in a weird situation: we generally try not to write about our own, at least not in this publication. At which times you realize that sometimes the Globe actually is good for something. And their little blog Toto, too.)
Age Rings play Saturday night at T.T. the Bear's Place [DETAILS], as well as June 12 at Great Scott; those of you in the New York City area should keep an eye peeled for their Lit Lounge gigs this summer (June 24 and July 29).
