Damone ends ten-year + hiatus with new single "Moon and Stars"

New England scene indie-pop legends Damone are back at last, and the day is just that much better. The group’s sky-high successes dazzled audiences all across the world during the mid-‘00s with Out Here All Night, the group’s second studio album, peaking at #168 in the Billboard 200 charts. The group’s latest single “Moon and Stars” carries within its delicate electric guitar riffs and soft harmonies the weight of the group’s absence: the trials and tribulations the group has endured over the last decade brings it together powerfully and charges its music with full emotion. We tip our hats to these local heroes whose music continues to inspire and captivate; the Boston-based band’s latest single is reflective, soothing, and just the right track for the hopeful. We are hoping to see some live shows upcoming throughout New England. Stream the new single below and lose yourself for a while. - Rene Cobar

Cheap City debuts flamboyant single "Welcome to Lizardville," plays 13th Floor Music Lounge 10.26

Cheap City wants to welcome you to its sonic carnival of funky basslines and grandiose trashings. The group’s latest single “Welcome to Lizardville” is a festive track that leads listeners up and down the band’s tendencies for funk-punk stylings: one minute you are grooving and moving to an infectious bassline, and the next you are drowning in a gritty pool of cathartic noise-rock. The new track is tailored for crowd-interaction, and one could imagine the song being a flamboyant hit live. Cheap City keeps the big sound going and preserves that maniac jam-band feel that has always characterized the group; the good times keep on rolling. The group will be playing at the 13th Floor Music Lounge in Florence, MA, on October 26th. Stream the new single below. - Rene Cobar

   

Sneeze's turbulent genre-fusing record "Fin" delights

We cannot think of a better way to ignite your weekend than by presenting you to a group that blends the best of the '90s and '00s at the highest speed possible. Sneeze is pop-punk meets grunge vehemently and in ever-pleasing fashion: the group's brand new record Fin is filled with fuzzed-out riffs and heavy-handed drum fills that progress quickly toward mosh-inducing power-pop breakdowns. Take tracks like "Not in Service" as prime examples of the group’s ability to switch from rapid punk rhythms into intricate-swelling atmospheric segments that set up more instrumental madness. Just as you think you are catching your breath, the band has another progression too good not to bang your head to a la 2003. Tracks like "A Winter in Barcelona" flirt with nu-metal and showcase the group's instrumental proficiency and lust for noise. The Boston-based band is revving its engine for November dates throughout the West Coast, which are sure to be a good time. We are streaming the delightfully sinister track "Dark Earth" from the new record below. - Rene Cobar

   

Amanda McCarthy enchants in new single "I Love Who You Are," plays Radio Bean tonight!

Amanda McCarthy had already dazzled New England with her full-length record, Road Trip, this past summer. However, all good artists build on their successes, and Amanda is one of them: her brand new single “I Love Who You Are” is out now. The single is splendid folk-pop that is suitable for all moods; its message is of love and perseverance. The snappy snare rhythm, brilliant acoustic melodies, and larger-than-life harmonious choruses are led by McCarthy’s enchanting vocals, driving the message home. The song grows with joy and uplifts spirits in typical McCarthy fashion. If it is the end of 2019 for McCarthy, the single is a rich cadence indeed. The New Hampshire resident will be performing at Radio Bean in Burlington, Vermont, this evening. We are streaming the brand new single for your enjoyment below. - Rene Cobar
