It’s LIFESTYLE night on Boston Accents. Sean Drinkwater and Ad Frank from Boston’s synthpop veterans hung with me tonight in the studio, playing new tracks, talking about their February 11 masquerade ball at Great Scott, and sampling tunes from their musical orbit. We also debuted a fuckton of new music, so saddle up and ride the Marotta Express. And if you’re reading this tonight, join us at Great Scott right now for the Bon Savs show.
