Bittersweet show today on BOSTON ACCENTS as one of my favorite performers is set to get into his Prius with his ladyfriend and permanently head down to Nashville. It was a pleasure to have folk singer/guitarist CALEB GROH here in the WFNX studio with me, drinking whiskey, talking shop and playing tunes.
Whole lotta CLASS OF 2012 action on this cold, snowy Tuesday afternoon in Boston.
In the video clip below, RULE take us on a sneaky look inside their recent sessions at Mad Oak Studio in Allston, allowing a 16-second peak of the hard rock crew’s debut record set for release this spring. Hey, we'll take it.
A few month before CALEB GROH added some soul to today's Class of 2012 feature in the Phoenix, he met up with us in scenic and beautiful Allston to launch our pop-up video series. The good people at Folk to Folk brought Groh out to Ringer Park for a quick three-song set, and the rising singer-songwriter did not disappoint.
Welcome to the sounds of CLASS OF 2012. Last night we unveiled the soundtrack to our annual Best New Boston Bands feature, a 12-track compilation spanning metal to electro to psych to folk to indie, available for free download via Bandcamp. Last year we hooked up a handful of mp3s, but this year we're going full-frontal awesome.
From the growing GHouse collective come two new artists poised to break out in 2012. BADKNIGHT, a Boston-based lullaby-pop duo of Emily Lenae and Devin McKnight, released debut record It’s Alright just last month, and standout track “Rewind” is an ethereal, acoustic drifter that positions Lenae as the weekday-daydream answer to Harriet Wheeler’s Sundays.
