Alt Rock

Somerset offers grandiose alt-rock music, plays O'Brien's 09.01

Boston's Somerset isn't content with the bare bones alt-rock performance; its particular brand of music is grandiose. The band's upcoming fall record has spawned its second single, "Revere Street," a spectacular display of slick guitar arpeggios, shimmering piano accompaniments, thunderous harmonies, and a much-appreciated opening bassline. The group's deep arsenal of sounds is primed for large venues, evoking the spirit of late '90s alternative rock while modernizing it. The kick drum work in the new single is something to relish in, as is the heroic guitar solo in the climax: the song is a job well done. The band will be performing at O'Brien's Pub in Allston on September 1st and kicking off what is sure to be a busy autumn. We are streaming "Revere Street" below for you. - Rene Cobar

   

New Field Mouse LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Field Mouse's new full-length album, Meaning, is out today via Topshelf Records. The band's latest collection of recordings navigates and negotiates individual existence, within a world of disorder. Peaceful vocals provide the vehicle to explore personal and societal problems and pleasures in radiant, melodic eruptions. The LP was produced by Field Mouse bandmates, Andrew Futral and Rachel Browne, and Kyle Gilbride (of Wherever Audio). 

   

Repenter releases blistering debut single, "So Sick"

Repenter's heavy, blistering debut single "So Sick" gets its point across with startling immediacy. Led by a chugging guitar line with a punk flourish, the duo of vocalist Holly Winter and guitarist Thomas Scriven complement each other with an ease that can't be taught. "I just want you to know that I ain't mad at ya, but I ain't a fan of ya," Winter unapologetically sings in a husky upper register, making a pointed critique at the insidious side of influencer culture. - Juan Rodríguez
