Beshken & CLAVVS to play Day 2 of Austin Pedal & Synth Expo Showcase, 03.16

FREE Eventm RSVP here! Info about Day One here!

For our upcoming Austin Pedal & Synth Expo Showcase, we are excited to get to feature the music of a couple of NYC locals. The electronic music Beshken makes is meditative and complex, weaving between digital and acoustic instruments with dreamlike results. His latest track, “Cursed”, picks its way between honey smooth synths and dissonant vocal effects, reflecting on the mental revolutions between sleep and insomnia. On the other end, while their lyrics too reflect on sleepless thoughts, the music of CLAVVS is rather lucid. The production on their most recent single “Devils I Know” places the vocals at the forefront of a hypnotic and unexpectedly baroque electronic backdrop. The Expo will be held on March 16th at the Chugging Monkey - listen to CLAVVS, Beshken and the other artists who will appear below. - Sunny Betz 

   

Saccharine brings 'Hollow Space' to O'Brien's Pub (3.1)

There are some songs that make you feel like they came from your own mind, that understand in a way that feels maybe a bit too close for comfort. And Somerville-based artist Saccharine's most recent full-length release Hollow Space is filled with them. In the vein of Ben Gibbard, Kevin King has infused emotional lyrics with an earnest and energetic delivery that leaves the listener feeling a whirlwind of excitement, awe, heartbreak. On this release, King's songwriting is unrivaled, his arrangements are cathartic; the result is a set of songs that linger much longer than expected. See Saccharine live at O'Brien's Pub in Allston on March 1, alongside Burlington rock darlings Clever Girls, who are currently on tour heading towards the Midwest. Until then, stream the full album below. - Lilly Milman

   

Get so "High" with Boston duo FBGM, now on West Coast tour

Matt Jatkola and D. Orxata make up the Boston-based eclectic indie-pop duo FBGM. Their newest single "High" (streaming below) is a bouncy ode to highs and lows. The buoyant melody is kept afloat by a breezy delivery of deadpan lyrics like "How do you get me so high in the morning? ... Why is it easy to cry in the morning?" The lyrics operate in paradoxes, and the production effortlessly adds a shimmery texture. Written, produced, recorded, and mixed by Jatkola himself, the track is steeped in a heavy dose of experience and sentimentality. It's undoubtedly the work of people who care about what they are creating, while also playing around with infectious pop sensibilities. FBGM is currently on a west coast tour and will return to New England on March 10 to play Hutghi’s at the Nook in Westfield, MA. - Lilly Milman
