Boston Accents 12.06.12 Milling Gowns EP preview + Bent Shapes, Guillermo Sexo, Velah, Cooling Towers, Plumerai

 

We stared down Thursday by inviting the gloomy post-punk sounds of THE MILLING GOWNS into the WFNX studio today, matching the chill outside with with the briskness of Boston Accents. The band spun three tracks off their new EP, Something Dangerous Loves Me, which gets released tomorrow night at Radio in Somerville, and hand picked songs from Human Sexual Response, Spearmint Sea, Cooling Towers, and the Crushing Low. We also heard from the two other bands on the release-party bill, Velah and Plumerai, and debuted two new tracks from Bent Shapes. Here's what we heard.

BENT SHAPES “Panel of Experts” -- Kicking off with two new tracks from the Artist Formerly Known as Girlfriends, a double a-side joint out of flexidisc on December 12.

BENT SHAPES “Bites & Scratches”

GUILLERMO SEXO “Neon -- Playing at T.T. The Bear's Saturday night (early show, pre-Heroes) with Air Traffic Controller and a band called Elephant Stone which unfortunately is not a Stone Roses cover band.

THE MILLING GOWNS “Zenith” -- First track from our in-studio guest, the second cut off Something Dangerous Loves Me and the lead track off this week's Phoenix Playlist.

PLUMERAI “Trip” -- Playing with the Milling Gowns tomorrow night at Radio.

THE MILLING GOWNS “Where The Ground Is Rust With Needles”

VELAH “Skelton House” -- Velah is also playing with the Gowns tomorrow night, we all fanboy'd out in the studio over the incredible 7-inch packaging and design. If they have any left after their release a few months ago, we implore you to purchase it.

SPEARMINT SEA “Two”

COOLING TOWERS “Hard Headed Woman”

THE MILLING GOWNS “Arc & Pale”

HUMAN SEXUAL RESPONSE “Land of Glass Pinecones”

THE CRUSHING LOW “Carousel”
