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.
The artwork for DIRTY VIRGINS’ self-released Whiskey Dick EP is an eyecatcher. Not because of the pale, female, thonged ass yawning for attention (the “y” in “Dirty” traces a whale tail!) but because of the old fat dude caught staring it at. Clutching a light beer and boasting a perfectly round, crescent-moon preggo belly, this mess of a man provides a nice visual for “I Like You,” a trembling garage-rock do-si-do from Allston’s newest DIY dudes that shows a kindler, gentler side until rolling off the rails in a noisy dust-up towards the end.
