New Mattress Food Album Available for Streaming & Download

Sami Rahman, a.k.a. Mattress Food, recently dropped his "new" album, Cryola!. Faling in a lo-fi, bedroom-folk proximity with soaring/warping psych elements peppered in places, the collection of songs initially sounds simple, but negotiates intriguing territory. A largely familiar acoustic strumming backdrop is slightly shaken off its personal axis. Rahman shared, "So these songs have been kicking around my hard-drive for a few years, and I would like SOMEONE to hear them before, inevitably, my death." Please grant a dying man his final request. ;-)

The Styrofoam Winos bring dynamic alt-folk to Betty's Grill 7.25

Nashville’s The Styrofoam Winos are not a typical band—the three-piece describe themselves as a sort of revolving door of projects. Each member is a songwriter with their own projects, and they alternate between leading the bands live show. Made up of Lou Turner, Trevor Nikrant, and Joe Kenkel, the band is constantly shapeshifting between sounds, styles, and instruments. The Styrofoam Winos are very much a live band, but the band is also alive; it’s dynamic and difficult to pin down, which is why it’s so important to see them play in person. Their next show is tonight at 9 pm at Betty’s Grill, and they will be playing again on August 26th with Crave On at The End. - Lilly Milman

Brittle Brian releases new Single "Truther," plays Middle East 8/24

Victoria Rose began releasing music under the name "Brittle Brian" in 2014, nearing the end of her enrollment at Boston University. She began putting out two absorbing electronic tracks on "Instrumentals for Looking at Animals" an album sweetly fitting to the activity it recommends. Then her first full-length, Bony French Cathedrals, was a stripped-down acoustic album full of confession. Continuing her organic, self-recorded and produced aesthetic, she released Verisune, an album released following her graduation from college which lead her to become a staple of the Boston scene, playing everywhere from house venues to local favorites like The Great Scott. Like the stark portrait of its album art, Verisune is a personal album that is utterly unique and intense. Most recently she's released "Truther," an eerie ballad which alternates Spanish folk guitar with Elliot Smith influences. We look forward to anything that this individual singer-songwriter brings to Boston in the future. See her alongside Horse Jumper of Love, Dust from 1000 Yrs, and Blue Smiley August 24th. -Allie Miller

In his new video for the track “Here and Now,” he infuses his Nashville surroundings into his R&B music, creating a soulful mix of folk, blues, country, and groove. According the Gilfillian, the song is about a woman who he will one day love and live in the moment with.
