It's time to celebrate A Very Allston Christmas, vol. 4

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Allston, and 23 of the area's best bands have joined together to celebrate with a compilation. Now in its fourth run, A Very Allston Christmas is a perfect blend of classic and cool. Magic Magic, who have participated in every installment of the series, kick off volume four with a warm, lo-fi cover of "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas." What they take away from the classic version in their stripped-down vocals and harmonies, they add in new 8-bit-adjacent sounds. Other highlights from the compilation include Holiday Music's "Family Tree," School Shoes' "In The Bleak Midwinter," and Eggy Benedict's "Christmas Always Makes Me Cry." The compilation is available for purchase on Bandcamp, and all of the proceeds will go towards Bridge Over Troubled Waters -- a Boston-based organization devoted to providing necessary services to at-risk, homeless, and runaway youth. - Lilly Milman

Shake the rust off some tired old tracks and discover some new ones with A Very Allston Christmas Vol. 4 below.

Wooing's "The Clouds" is an otherworldly vision

The Clouds, the newest single by New York’s Wooing, is a release that feels not of this time. Through frontwoman and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Trachtenburg’s haunting vocals, softly commanded against echoing pedal-laden guitar lines, the band crafts a soundscape that feels both vintage and otherworldly, as if Motown existed in a universe of David Lynch’s making. Even the opening lyrics on “Could Have Been” implore feelings of a disconnect, as Trachtenburg (previously in Supercute! and Prettiots) paints surrealist landscapes wherein she “went to the moon, [and] saw your head up in the clouds” as an eerie, theremin-like sound wanders behind her. Between “Could Have Been” and b-side “In Her Head,” Wooing have stumbled upon visions of the subconscious that could be either dreams or nightmares, but they are captivatingly engrossing nonetheless. - Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

New Flanafi EP Available for Streaming & Download

Flanafi is a project of Simon Martinez, one half of the Philly-based band Pulgas. While Pulgas’ songs often consist of large and dynamic rock arrangements, Flanafi leans toward a more mellow, neo-soul vibe. Martinez’s musical partner, Zane Shields, makes an appearance on drums for title track and EP opener, "You live here?", and his sister Eva Martinez provides vocals on "cheese plate". Consistent throughout Martinez’s projects is an impressive ability to synthesize exciting songwriting with skillful sonic engineering. You live here? is a brief collection of songs, but packs in plenty of moments to appreciate and zone to. A welcome companion to cozy up with as we enter a collective winter hibernation. - Josh Kelly
