New Track: "Country Song" - Joy Again

Lil Nas X's chart-topping success with "Old Town Road" reinvigorated the debate over how one approaches musical genres. Is it about sonic structure, lyrical setting, the overall lifestyle/culture it depicts, etc.? That being said, Joy Again have new single that they've titled “Country Song”. The recording melds the warmth of slide and acoustic guitar, with keys and backend, helping yopur mind meander down some backwoods road. The track morphs over the course of time, bring to mind Ween-esque musical terrain, shifting expectations. Is it a "country song"?

Modern Painters prepare to unveil their latest record "City Folk" at ONCE 07.05

The music of Boston’s Modern Painters drips a syrupy sonic collage of influences that when looked at from afar create a harmonious portrait worth admiring. The various textures that range from honeyed pianoforte phrases to vibrantly colored electric guitar flourishes betray the group’s indie-folk label, transcending it, sketching slowly something far more complex. The group’s latest single “Hive” lingers beautifully, paced by an initially feather-light jazz drum beat that revs up to meet the arpeggiating guitar and thumping bass inspired by your favorite indie-rock record. The lead vocals of Gabe Goodman are entrancing enough to match today’s dream-pop stars and mist away in the single to make way for an irresistible sax solo that melts like butter under the summer sun. Modern Painters are gearing up for the release of City Folk, their first album in nearly two years. The release show will be at ONCE in Somerville on July 5th, and we are thrilled to preview the record for you by streaming “Hive” below. - Rene Cobar

Audrey Ryan returns with first record in five years, plays album release show 06.20

Five years have passed since singer-songwriter Audrey Ryan released Let's go to the Vamp, an indie-folk record heavy on crawling loops and lush harmonies. Ryan's follow-up Buggy Spell is far more playful and versatile: the Boston-based artist takes full advantage of her multi-instrumental abilities by sprinkling each song with light tambourine rhythms, merry acoustic elements, and cheery vocal melodies that hint at beautiful memories. The elegant sonic layering that Ryan employs is distinctly characteristic of indie-folk music, a genre which continues to blossom as groups like First Aid Kit and The Civil Wars keep going strong. The release show for Buggy Spell is set for Thursday, June 20th at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA. We have "After a While Crocodile" from the new record available to stream below. - Rene Cobar
