Mp3 of the Week: R.M. Hendrix "Summer Dresses"

Now that Patriots’ Day is in the sunny rearview, outdoor life can finally begin around the Commonwealth. This long-awaited seasonal bloom has found a Sunday afternoon soundtrack in the hazy nu-gaze pop of R.M. HENDRIX’s “Summer Dresses,” a noisy, carefree ode to girls, beaches, and rock and roll that wouldn’t be out of place on a beat-up Maxell mixtape alongside early New Order and the Jesus & Mary Chain. Although Hendrix’s ’90s alt-rock band Flannery lives on in cable television land (with songs popping up on Bravo’s Flipping Out and Emeril's Planet Green on Discovery), as a solo artist the Cambridge-based graphic designer crafts textured, dream-pop fuzz for people just itching to get the fuck outside. “Summer Dresses” is an amped-up version of one of his previous tracks (2011’s “Ivorine & Chai”), and embodies the sun and surf that we here in Boston wait all winter for. Grab the MP3 now -- it's too nice outside not to.
