Post-Punk Takes Over Green Noise Tonight

Ritual Veil have been pretty inescapable since they hit the scene, and for good reason. The post-punk/sex beat trio's debut EP Wolf In The Night hasn't lost momentum since its release in late summer of last year, likely due to its refreshing yet stylistically pure spin on old school goth and new wave. Ritual Veil's beats, sensual synths and smooth croons are addicting and mesmerizing to watch.

There's a chance to catch Ritual Veil doing an early set tonight at Green Noise Records. Sharing the stage with them is newer anarcho-deathwave quartet Over and the synthesized experimental sounds of Xibling. It's free, all ages, and an intimate way to be enticed by these three acts in one setting. Space will be incredibly limited, so if you want to catch peeks it's best to get there early. In the mean time, get lost in Ritual Veil's video for "Wolf In The Night" below.

Animal Flag frontman Matthew Politoski releases sprawling solo album

Matthew Politoski, frontman of the beloved Boston indie rock group Animal Flag, has released a sprawling instrumental solo album titled 8 Emanations, his first in over two years. The instrumental drones on 8 Emanations are entirely devoid of lyricism, or melody for that matter, and instead focus on ethereal and enveloping soundscapes, built using various acoustic and electronic instruments. Politoski’s newest work draws on influences ranging from European electronica and witch house music, displaying intuitive structures to darkly emotive and deeply stirring harmonic movements. The result is an incredibly warm and strangely inviting body of work that will take any Animal Flag fan by surprise. Stream and purchase 8 Emanations below, where all the proceeds will be donated to the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. -Charley Ruddell

Pink Navel spits heady tongue twisters on “Raw Navel”

Although Pink Navel, the solo project of smooth poet Devin Bee, released his full length album Raw Navel over a year ago, the rapper/beatmaker deserves some current recognition. Bee’s particular brand of oddball hip-hop is heavily driven by a stream-of-conscious and absurdist flow of spoken word poetry, highlighted by crunchy lofi beats swaddled in background noise and quirky synth patches. Bee’s poetic content bares a stark similarity to Mike Doughty’s, the mythic voice behind cult group Soul Coughing, while his delivery resembles the smooth confidence of 2000s alt-hip groups like Aesop Rock and Blue Scholars. Raw Navel, in all of its warped obscurity, is a clever and compelling release, and a much needed breath of life in New England’s alternative hip hop scene. You can stream Raw Navel below. -Charley Ruddell

STREAM Mobilities' 'Time Hasn't Swallow Us Yet,' Out Now

If you couldn't already tell by their name, Mobilities is a band about free movement; fluidity in their instrumentation, production and genre influences is part of what makes Mobilities such an enjoyable and dynamic group. Their self-titled EP was one of the first tastes of their particular flavor they shared with the world, but their debut full-length Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet goes even further to showcase their spirited musicianship.

Most of the songs on Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet were written by lead vocalist/guitarist Eric McCauley and bassist/vox Brett Sparrey (though each member had a hand in writing their own parts) and recorded over about a five month span at Toadhouse Studios. Musically, you can hear the influence bands like Queens of the Stone Age, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and local phenoms Portugal. The Man have had on them, blurring lines between what's considered alternative, experimental rock, indie, garage and punk. But, Mobiliities takes their songs in their own direction lyrically and sonically. The album is thematically based on social issues, touching on political and philosophical issues as well. It's a journey from start to finish, and one that is worth taking with the band.

Catch Mobilities, along with Eugene's Childspeak and The Von Howlers, for the Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet album release show 2.24 at Kelly's Olympian. Dive into the album in its entirety below. You won't be disappointed.
