Class of 2012: Fresh new sounds of Boston


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. Feel free to cherry pick a listen to the individual songs below, then grab the entire collection for your listening pleasure. Oh, and don't forget to peep the actual article, on newsstands around the city this morning and over on the Phoenix homepage.

This Sunday on WFNX's Boston Accents we'll spin the comp, and maybe invite a band or twelve into the studio for some drunken late-night FM revelry. Cheers.
