have an irrational love affair with electronic music. Most of my days
are spent perusing the scenes of cities I've never been to -- London,
Berlin, Tokyo -- attempting to stay abreast on movements that I'm not a
part of. On a national scale, I've remained cautiously optimistic in
regards to the whole EDM boom, with my (admittedly selfish) hope being
that some of these kids drawn to the arena-sized spectacle will
eventually catch on to some wayward shit and DJs that I adore will
garner bigger bookings as a result.
Guitars roar mighty in this week’s playlist, kicking off with a slow rumble from the prowling post-punk sounds of THE MILLING GOWNS, whose “Zenith” is our black-clad selection off their new EP, Something Dangerous Loves Me, which gets the release party treatment Friday night at Radio on a growling bill with Plumerai and Velah.
Was just another day in the WFNX circle pit, had a bunch of new tracks lined up for a slew of shows around town the next few days, and then BAM! -- SPEEDY ORTIZ just rolls up to WFNX to say hey. They're at T.T. The Bear's tonight for the Infinity Girl EP release party, (which we covered yesterday like whoa), so we chatted about what's up in Western Mass and spun some tracks from their end of the state.
The outpouring of support around Boston for BARBARA WALSH has been so big, they had to put it on a fucking billboard on Interstate 93. Facing both directions.
Honestly, nevermind the Allston Village bulletin boards, or the walls at various Newbury Comics, or some street pole in Jamaica Plain -- you wanna spread the good word, get the message in front of thousands of commuters.
