Mp3 of the Week: Aberdeen City


A lot's happened since we introduced you to AbCity's "God Is Going To Get Sick Of Me" back in July of 2005. Back then we predicted they'd end up opening for U2. So far, they've made it as far as opening for Electric Six -- ehh, close enough -- while piling up FNX airplay, Boston Music Awards, an MTV "You Hear It First," and a deal with Columbia's RedInk imprint. There are now scads of Boston bands playing, with varying degrees of polish, this brooding, anthemic, Euro-centric rock that (if pressed) we'd trace back to the Pill and the Sheila Divine. But out of all that crew, Aberdeen seem to get it rightest. They play a homecoming show tomorrow (Saturday, November 18) at Great Scott before hitting the road again with Rasputina. For your gift bag: an exclusive, intimate take on one of AbCity's best album tracks. It's the sound of cold sexy killers beginning to thaw, airing out their achy-breaky AOR side, looking fabulous in the process, and reminding would-be suitors that regret is a man's best friend.
