New Hampshire indie rock band Something//Something recently came out with a new EP, A LOT. Recorded with Dan Seiders at Chillhouse Studio in Charlestown, MA. The band breaks down the four songs from the album below.
This is actually a song about being a dog. The speaker is meant to be that good 'ol pup who waits around at home for you but is always stoked to see you no matter what you've been up to or how long you were gone. -trent/john
This is one from the inside out. "I don't even recall what time it was that happened" gave way to the other lines which, I think, get at some sort of mood without telling you what it is. The objective correlative as TS Eliot called it. There was no real intention to SAY anything specific with these lyrics. They just felt like they sat on the music nicely. The "I'm not a closer" part was a little double reference - one to Kyrie, he's definitely a closer (though it might be Tatum going forward). -trent
This one started the same way as Closer, but after landing on the word "Molly" it grew into something more specific. It's about a guy who has to be with Molly against all odds. In all his confused love he ultimately feels that he can't be temporary in Molly's life. -trent
This song is a bit older than the others on the EP, written between 2015 and 2016. The writing process for this one was definitely more of a cathartic release rather than an attempt to "write a song." Mainly, it just deals with frustration over people being unwilling to change. -john
Boston-based folk-rock outfit The Wolff Sisters & The Last Cavalry return to Atwood’s Tavern,
Cambridge’s favorite haunt, on July 19th. CT band Wise Old Moon will kick off the show with their distinctive, energetic roots rock set.
The Wolff Sisters & The Last Cavalry first broke into the Boston music scene as an acoustic trio. With haunting harmonies and songs reminiscent of washed up wanderers on New England’s salty coasts, Rebecca, Rachael, and Kat stole Boston’s heart as The Wolff Sisters (yes, they’re really sisters). They grew up on the heavy realism of Dylan and Springsteen blended with the loose and loud Rolling Stones. Drawing inspiration from blues giants like Howlin’ Wolf and modern storytellers Dawes, The Wolff Sisters don’t fit into one genre of music. In 2015, the trio amplified their performance with the addition of The Last Cavalry. The band released their second full-length album on March 29th, titled “Cahoon Hollow.”
Wise Old Moon is a touring rock band from Hartford, CT led by singer-songwriter Connor Zane Millican. Before recording two full-length albums with Wise Old Moon, Millican left home at a young age to travel the expansive American West, writing songs and recording acoustic demos along the way. Wise Old Moon’s music breathes new life into a blend of genres inspired by Millican’s experiences on the road. The band just released a five-song EP titled, “Factory Town.”
Come for the dark, speakeasy vibe and your favorite craft beer, stay for the deep grooves.
Show starts at 10pm. Tickets are $8 advance and $10 at the door. This event is 21+.
"Sleepy Monks is a three-piece band located just outside of Boston. Today they release their first full length LP entitled Leftover Sun, recorded at Ghost Hit Recording in Holyoke MA. The album features eleven tracks that range from fast and energetic to slow and contemplative. The album is full of glassy, twinkly guitars and catchy, melodic bass lines. The drums drive the album with a force but are thoughtful and nuanced. The vocals are raw and emotive, and are shared between two distinct vocalists. Leftover Sun is an emotional, melancholic experience but at the same time is lighthearted and quirky."

"Snowhaus is a Shred-Pop band out of Hadley Massachusetts. They Don't End Pretty is their long anticipated full length, a fresh fusion of rock n’ roll, catchy pop hooks, and heaping servings of posi-punk spirit. The title track kicks off the album with genre-bending party-punk mania that sends you on a wild ride. It’s clean, mean, quirky, and somehow wonderfully shiny. Diverse songwriting drives the record, from lighthearted verses to dark undertones, interlaced with moments of absolute abandon. They Don’t End Pretty is an experiment in fun."
