Banded Starling Drop Folksy Debut, Sink In

The New Hampshire alt-folk duo may be in it's beginning stages, but Banded Starling founders, Priscilla Bel and Pete Watson are no strangers to the New England music scene.  A decade long musical partnership has given way to an intimate debut EP with tons of heart.  Sink In fits comfortably into the rich indie/folk tapestry of New England with soothing vocal melodies and tastefully orchestrated instrumentals.  We're excited to see what the future holds for these two storytellers.  Catch them at Brew'd Awakening in Lowell, MA on 6/10. -Brian Varneke

Scott Ruth embraces roots rock on "Are You There"

Former Future Leagues member Scott Ruth is trading in his bass guitar and going solo on his new single "Are You There", a slick roots rocker that marks a notieable departure from last year's more introspective release, The Weight of it All. Whereas his previous release had a feeling of dry seclusion, his yearning new single holds a vibrant optimism that's both unvarnished and wistfully nostalgic. 

With folk singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen under his guidance, the drifting "Are You There" suggests a compelling new direction from a beloved local artist who's written the perfect soundtrack to take out on the open road.

GREENBANK - GREAT CANADIANA

Greenbank hail from Thunder Bay, Ontario. Very nice harmonies from these guys over their pure Canadiana tunes. Cut from the cloth knitted by Canadian legends like Neil Young and The Band, I get a sense of rural landscape listening to them. Their tunes although new could still give you a nice sense of nostalgia. From Thunder Bay to LA these guys can hold their own. They will be at the Painted Lady on May 10th. - Kris Gies

Green Noise Reopens, Celebrates with DJs and Live Music

Portland is the kind of place where vinyl appreciation is taken seriously amongst much of the masses. While we've lost some of our beloved record shops, the few that are still around are special places that see much business at times other than just Record Store Day. Green Noise Records has lasted throughout the years, changing locations a couple times since its original southeast locale, but they've found yet another new up in northeast that they're celebrating throughout the weekend.

Starting today, Green Noise is hosting their own sort of welcoming party, slated with sets from djs and bands alike. Most of today's festivities, which started around noon, are dj sets. Patrons are invited to peruse the shop's offerings while enjoying records spun by djs like Vera Rubin, Erich Zann and Ken Dirtnap, or tomorrow's live performances from EMS, Low Culture and Davey Quinn

Admission is free and if you scope a few records you'd like to pick up, everything is 15% off the whole weekend. Come check out Green Noise's new space, some awesome bands and djs, and some new vinyl sounds as well.

Kelly McFarling Announces New Album - Water Dog

San Francisco-based songwriter, Kelly McFarling's work is reflective of transitions, the wilderness, and its navigation. Sometimes she plays banjo, other times acoustic guitar. Often, she plays a Telecaster fronting her band, The Home Team, featuring pedal steel (Tim Marcus), drums (Nick Cobbett), bass (Oscar Westesson), and various other Bay Area musicians.

Water Dog, McFarling’s latest release, is her most intimate and folk-leaning record to date. She recorded the album in seasonal segments of 2016. The songs were first demoed with Allen Rothschild in his bedroom in Asheville, NC, where the creaks of his wood floor and the sounds of summer winding down made their way onto the recordings through open windows and live takes.The demos became the foundation of the record, and McFarling took them back to San Francisco, where Avi Vinocur of Goodnight Texas produced and engineered the majority of the record at his home in the Sunset District. “Recording at Avi’s house gave us the time to let the songs breathe and evolve.” McFarling said of the process. “It gave us space to make decisions at our own pace. I’ve never made a record like that, and it was a really special time. These songs were written in quiet spaces that were lived in. It made sense to record them in that way.”

Water Dog is out June 16. Here the album's newest single, Both below.
