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.
Killer show tonight! We got into the details of the T.T. The Bear's Place renovations, played the entire Creaturos demo -- all 13 minutes, son -- and announced our ROOM PARTY next Sunday at the Liberty Hotel for the BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS. Live broadcast! Drunken interviews! Terrible-sounding in-room performances! Band pillow fights! Oh my.
Rolling into November, tonight on BOSTON ACCENTS we dropped new styles and sounds from Movers & Shakers, Night Fruit, and unveiled the entire upcoming Earthquake Party EP. Hey, it happens. Hang with us every Sunday night from 8 to 10 pm, on the FM radio dial at 101.7 or streaming online at wfnx.com. If you feel it, follow us on Twitter (@BostonAccentsMA) and like like like our hot sauce on the book of faces
It's a New Music Spooktacular on BOSTON ACCENTS tonight, mixing up some fresh new rock and pop jams with some creepy experimental sounds from the New England underground. Feels good to be back in the studio after a one-week absence. We're back in action next Sunday night from 8 to 10pm, only on WFNX, 101.7 FM and streaming online at wfnx.
Welcome to the Ghost Host edition of the Boston Accents playlist recap! As you may or may not know, I landed my dumb ass in the hospital earlier this week, and was discharged around 4pm this afternoon. Doctors told me I needed to stay in bed a few days after release, so to keep the BOSTON ACCENTS momentum alive, we decided to load up the setlist with nominated songs from this year's BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS, which were announced on Tuesday (pre-hospital, bro).
Another episode of BOSTON ACCENTS is in the books, we opened with some neon pop bangers, got our rock and roll on, dipped into the gritty garage circles, danced with street punk, and closed out with a house track. Z'how it goes on the BA, every Sunday night from 8 to 10pm on WFNX 101.7 FM and wfnx.com. Listen up, get down.
We started tonight's show with recognition of MIKEY WELSH, former Weezer bassist and longtime Boston rock and art scene veteran who died unexpectedly this weekend in Chicago. He was 40 years old. Boston Accents poured one out, and dedicated the first four songs of tonight's show to his memory and legacy.
Here's tonight's Boston Accents playlist. Not shown: my rant about the stupid two-week club rule, me stumbling like fuck over the name of the new Wheat song, and me dancing around the WFNX studio like an idiot to Conservative Man. Hang out with me next week, Sunday night from 8 to 10pm streaming live on wfnx.com or at 101.
Here is tonight's Boston Accents playlist, and it's a fucking doozy. We kicked it off with a double shot of THE FAUX, then rolled back to the early-'00s for some post-millennial garage rock ruckus, gave some love to the Granite State, and debuted a brand new STEREO TELESCOPE remix from DJ DIE YOUNG, which got finished roughly 16 minutes before I entered it into the WFNX library.
Here's the playlist from tonight's show, kicking off with a bit of a dance party tip before cruising through new jams from War Presidents, Water Moccasins, the Bynars, New Highway Hymnal, Vanzetti and a few we debuted last week, like hott jams from Viva Viva and Township. Hang with us next Sunday at 8pm only on WFNX.
Here's tonight's BOSTON ACCENTS playlist, complete with show notes, band links, and my usual ragtime blah-blah-blahs. Listen in every Sunday night from 8 to 10pm at 101.7 FM or online at wfnx.com. This week we debuted a fuckton of dope new jams, and showed some love to Bostonians who bounced to Brooklyn as a nod to today's 10th anniversary of Sept.
