THE CHARMS

THE GOOD NORTH

THE INFORMATION

 
 

Louder, sweatier, and sexier than ever – The Charms are back with a new EP which combines their 60’s garage-pop roots with 80’s guitar-rock bravado.  The music is thick and nasty; the vocals are flirtatious and arousing; the songwriting is infectious.

Mixing music, style, and attitude with what The Boston Globe calls “densely ringing electric guitars, grand melodic gestures, and a panoramic sweep of space and sound.” The Good North have taken their cues from old-school Britpop, new-school indie-rock, and a dose of hardcore bravado. 

 

The best way to describe their sound is that if a solid object it'd be a stealth bomber  - heavy but fast and dark and with way of sneaking up on you and dropping some sonic boom on your unsuspecting brain.

 
 

MASS. HYSTERIA

BABY STRANGE

THE TINT

 
 

Drawing inspiration from 1960s vinyl, Mass. Hysteria have fused soul, British invasion, and (yes, even) country FM radio staples with the raw, danceable Jamaican import shellacs from the early days of Reggae.

 

Setting themselves apart from the recent crop of next-next-next-Strokes understudies, Baby Strange seizes upon the sounds of Motown and 1960's British arena-rock, creating a niche enigmatically described by Earlash as, "Terse, trashy, ornate and refined."

The Tint’s new EP takes the catchy songwriting and punk-fuelled delivery which has endeared them to critics and fans – and steers it to dark, dangerous places.

 
 

THE HIGH CEILINGS

THE PILLS

MAX HEINEGG  
  The High Ceilings combine down-and-dirty rock grooves, psychedelic tone, and enormous songwriting architecture.  The resulting mix is spacious, spacey, and impossible to contain.

Boston’s amphetamine-fuelled patron saints of hyperactive mod rock are back with a new album which breaks into new sonic territory while satisfying your need for unmistakeable Pills fifth-gear melody.

On By June, Heinegg takes on a sonic palette that evokes Nick Drake and  Joshua Tree-era U2: deceptively ambient with subtle-but-unforgettable hooks.
