Dogs At Large

Dogs at Large released their album Please Refrain early this month. They self-produced and released this project but the sound is sharp for basement rock. They are following a trend of late of '90's alternative rock throwbacks, but as with most this sound can not be overdone. You can download Please Refrain for free here.

You can catch Dogs At Large on 12/20 at Reggie's with Krol Kleks and Flamingo.

Swillbilly Heroes Quench Thirst With Country-Indie Rock EP

 I have to give some serious credit to Swillbilly Heroes; first, for having one of the greatest band names I’ve seen in a long while, and second, for playing some great and incredibly catchy country songs, which means a lot coming from a guy who knows very little of the genre. Their latest release, the Dying Stars EP, combines smooth and memorable country melodies, badass guitar riffs and drum fills that defy the country label. It places Swillbilly Heroes in a genre all their own, somewhere between alternative rock and bluesy-country-pop. “Head Shake” in particular caught my attention with its twangy guitars and heavy drums. It’s just got that deep, grungy, backwoods sound. I’m stumped trying to think of what to classify them as, but maybe it’s better you listen to them and figure it out for yourself. Seriously, You’ll thank me later.

Somerville's Minor Moon plays Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery on Saturday (12/12)

Just yesterday, Somerville, Massachussetts alt-folk act Minor Moon released its rather sublime debut full-length, 'A Whisper, A Shout.' As heard on the guitar-curled second track "Futon" and in the plaintive drum clasps of later song "Wild" (streaming below), this album revels in an affecting combination of masterfully refined instrumentation and bold emotional depth. Project mastermind, Sam Cantor, does, in fact, bare his feelings on the latter song, expressing inner struggles as he searches for a potentially transcendant peace. Minor Moon will have an album release show on Saturday (12/12) at Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery in Cambridge, Massachussetts. - Zach Weg

Boston singer/songwriter George Woods plays The Red Door on Monday (12/14)

Back in September, Boston-based singer/songwriter George Woods released 'Bedroom Demos,' an offering of two ruggedly pretty songs. Both blues-oriented folk tracks, the guitar-twined "Please Please" and "Devil's Got a Face" (streaming below) show the deep-voiced Woods candidly yet sweetly pining for romance, readily admitting his faults while devoting himself to another. Recalling a bit more of a downhome Jack White, Woods bravely shows vulnerability on these tracks, soulfully singing out pain. Reportedly at work on his sophomore studio effort (after 2012's 'Heartbeat), George Woods plays at The Red Door in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Monday (12/14). - Zach Weg
