The myriad sounds of Boston’s pop underbelly go on full-frontal display as power-pop veterans THE ORGAN BEATS tease new record GOLDENHEART -- which officially drops on October 30, but gets the proper release party treatment on November 1 at T.T. The Bear's Place -- with cruising firefly single “Living Without You.” Noelle & Crew also released a pretty cool video for the track, which you can peep[ after all the embeds below.
BIRTHDAYS, currently on tour with fellow solo missle Little Spoon, and coming home October 21 to the Lily Pad in Cambridge, drop a touch of Caribbean shimmy into Sammy Yager’s throbbing experimental-pop shake, spicing up our mix with one of our favorite tracks off his recent self-titled Bandcamp release (though we're also really feeling "Howolding Girls").
Eric Michael Cohen's CANCER KILLING GEMINI adds an industrial alloy strength to Radio’s one-year anniversary celebration this Saturday, which brings a gazillion bands to an all-day event at the Somerville hotspot. "Queen Of Heartbreak" is CKG's latest in the project's never-ending quest to release one song a month, from now to forever. Peep the Radio anni show flyer after the Organ Beats vid down below.
And Mission of Burma’s ROGER MILLER closes out this week's Playlist with the instrumental b-side to his new “Big Steam” 7-inch off Brian Coleman's freshly-minted Good Road Records, and the track is, Miller says, a sonic reference to Pink Floyd’s Piper at the Gates of Dawn.
