Much <3 to Boston electro-pop duo STEREO TELESCOPE for coming by the WFNX studio today to perform an acoustic set, pick some tunes, and hype up Saturday's Electric Xmas party at Brighton Music Hall in Allston. We also gave away five pairs of passes via our social media sites and text alerts, so congrats to all the winners.
In other parts of the country, the notion of an ENDLESS SUMMER might be all about surfing. Here in Boston, it's about the dance party, and our true-school year-round residents perform a season-long jig across the city while the students are gone, gone, gone. The kids are almost back in town -- the smell of U-Haul is in the air from Allston to Cambridge, and tonight the Phoenix descends on the latter for an electro-pop explosion that'll find us riding high on the Middlesex Lounge's tasty waves of synth.
Whole lotta CLASS OF 2012 action on this cold, snowy Tuesday afternoon in Boston.
In the video clip below, RULE take us on a sneaky look inside their recent sessions at Mad Oak Studio in Allston, allowing a 16-second peak of the hard rock crew’s debut record set for release this spring. Hey, we'll take it.
Class of 2012 cover darlings YOUNG LONDON are about to blow up. After the electro-pop duo's first single "Let Me Go" provided the December soundtrack to scores of holiday shoppers in malls across the country, their debut full-length finally drops via Fugitive Records this Tuesday. To celebrate, Matt and Sarah hit the Middle East on January 17 for some hot, sweaty, record-release party action, but you can lay your eyes and ears on this teaser trailer that hit YouTube earlier today.
Welcome to the sounds of CLASS OF 2012. Last night we unveiled the soundtrack to our annual Best New Boston Bands feature, a 12-track compilation spanning metal to electro to psych to folk to indie, available for free download via Bandcamp. Last year we hooked up a handful of mp3s, but this year we're going full-frontal awesome.
