Boston's psych rock Plastic Waves to play Great Scott on 4.13

I don’t know if you’ve ever watched plastic melt, but there is something so beautiful and mesmerizing in the way it disintegrates. The way it moves and folds into itself. Listening to Boston’s psychedelic outfit Plastic Wave is much like that. Solo project of Andre Bellido, Plastic Waves weaves together fuzzy vocals over snarling reverb laden guitars and oscillating synths as a thick base rhythmically pulsates in the background, creating a rich aural texture. Their self-titled debut EP starts off gently, with delicate synths in “Intro” before climaxing into an eruption of kaleidoscopic proportions on “Pushing Me Down” and then easing into a dizzying electric comedown with “Melancholy Sleep.” Take a listen below and don't forget to catch Plastic Waves entrancing sound at Great Scott on April 13. - Adriana S Ballester

 

   

New Music Video: "Nothing To Say" - Hurry

Despite initially depicting ideal daydream-like success, the new music video for "Nothing To Say" consistently finds Hurry's Matt Scottoline's literary pursuits rejected. As a result, the dejected writer deposits his old school G3 Powerbook in the trash. Found on the band's forthcoming LP Guided Meditation, which is set for release on April 29 via Lame-O Records, "Nothing to Say" possesses a gentle swaying melody that captures the apathetic sadness of failure. Everybody Hits will be hosting Hurry’s record release show on Friday, May 6, and the bill will also includes Telepathic and Cave People.

New Music Video: "Coma'd" - Three Man Cannon

Three Man Cannon recently released a new music video for “Coma’d,” a track that was featured on their latest EP, Will I Know You Then, released on Lame-O Records. The video blossoms as the band journeys into the woods, experiencing a ritualistic enlightenment, which is culminated with a cleansing in the natural waters. While the imagery provides a pleasant charming aesthetic, the brief, morphing facial contortions of the leader/high priest are haunting.
