Buzz Alert: The Smallest Town Ensemble Paints a Portrait of City Life With EP Out East

Brainchild of Matt Bowker, The Smallest Town Ensemble is not an easy band to track down, but if you're lucky enough to come across their EP, Out East, you'll be telling all of your friends about the gem you found.  A love letter of sorts to the Somerville, MA community, Out East paints a portrait of urban life that anyone inhabiting a cramped city apartment can relate to.  From country/folk twang to brass choir harmonies and gospel musings, Bowker weaves through a multitude of genres, creating a beautiful and poignant tapestry.  Each track features a unique instrumentation, masterfully tailored to the needs of the song.  Spend some time with this album and keep your eyes open for more from Matt Bowker and friends. -Brian Varneke

Small Forward release debut effort "The Moon You Stand On"

Small Forward’s debut offers up a genteel kind of spare psychedelic folk that impresses with their careful attention to songcraft. Combining distinctive jangly guitars with echoing harmonies, the songs in The Moon You Stand On patiently unfurl with winding ballads that are lushly affective. There’s a familiarity to their simple approach that makes them sound timeless, teeming with multi-layered guitars and chugging beats that lend a uniformity to their quietly resplendent melodies.

Small Forward are playing at The Mint on January 25, 2017. You can listen to The Moon You Stand On on their official bandcamp page and most major music streaming platforms. Juan Rodríguez
