Although electronic music is all the rage, with more “-waves” than Cape Cod, Boston has always been a town built on noisy, fuzzy, deliberately sloppy guitar-fueled alt-rock. Allston’s YOU CAN BE A WESLEY (full disclosure: bassist P. Nick Curran is a Phoenix contributor) are the next to emerge from the city’s underground, built on the strength of Saara Untracht-Oakner’s seductively searing morning-after vocal howl and a gritty sound nodding back to the alternative nation of the early ’90s. The Wesleys played the VIP opening party at the Paradise with Mean Creek last month, and they return to the refurbished Comm Ave rock club in November for the Eat Your Heart Out food fest, but not before a dual-single release party, art showcase, and fashion show October 7 at Great Scott. Grab exactly one-half of the new release, the bouncy post-rock tune “Talking Science,” via the mp3 link below.
