After a few weeks of show spotlights, this week’s Playlist is a bi-polar look at opposite ends of the Boston rock spectrum. Leading off is a new track from Central Massachusetts’ post-electroni-core quartet HERRA TERRA, whose “Portals” off their new Hyperborean EP is a comet-trail of synth-song. While there are record release parties set for Worcester (March 22 at Ralph's with Animal Talk, RIBS, and Coralcola) and Providence (March 30 at Fete Lounge with Lovelife, Ravi Shavi, and the Kolour Kolt) we're holding on tightly for a Boston date to be announced shortly.
Meanwhile, relative newcomers to the scene THE MILLIGRAMS take valley-girl smarts and stuff them into hypnotic bedroom-born synthesizers on "You Don't Need To Think," offering up one of the catchiest "la la la" bits we've heard in some time.
On the flip side of this double-sided comp, Bo Moore’s BOZMO return with a fuzzy garage-noise swagger and Allston underground duo FAT HISTORY MONTH settle the score with another freeloading guitar-rock screwdriver, their first new music since last year’s rousing Fucking Despair LP off local DIY label Exploding in Sound. "Bad History Month" is the first taste off a new LP of the same name due later this year. "The last one was our comedy album," states FHM's Bandcamp page. "This one's a tragedy." Get into it.
