Barnswallow sings a distorted melody on "Josephine"

On Barnswallow’s “Josephine” EP, charming melodies peek their way through a wall of distorted guitars. The title track shifts between a radio-ready chorus and radiant chords and drums big enough to fill a stadium. On “Exhale,” the band again moves from sing-song melodies to guitar solos with just the right amount of almost-too-much overdrive, before dropping everything but a treble-boosted guitar for its two-minute outro. With the inclusion of an acoustic version of “Exhale,” the “Josephine” EP is the closest that Rhode Island’s Atomic Action! Records gets to easy listening, so if you’re on the lookout for more local hardcore tunes, head on over to the label’s Bandcamp page. – Jake Reed

Willow Previews New EP To Be Released Next Month

Things get weird on “Fixtures,” a song released to Bandcamp last month by Providence band Willow.

Vocals fade in and out, muffled beneath the layered guitars that often pivot from left to right ear bud. The song previews “Slumlord,” the follow-up to “The Roanoke EP,” released last year. From the yuletide bells on “Dakota” and “Iowa” to the handclaps on “Colorado,” there are enough surprises to keep the EP from getting boring, not to mention the mixed bag of guitar tones used throughout its six tracks.

Look for the three-song “Slumlord” EP to be released in full to Bandcamp on December 1 - Jake Reed

Silks Debut LP Release Party @ Fete Music 11/29

Hailing from Rhode Island, vocalist Tyler-James Kelly’s gruff pipes make the Silks’ debut LP, “Last American Band,” play like an Eddie Vedder side project focused on recapturing a traditional Americana sound. If you are skeptical, look no further than the American flag that adorns the cover of the disc. As vocalist, guitarist and a mean harmonica player – make sure to check out “Try all you want” – Kelly is the star of the show, but the band wouldn’t be a complete set without drummer Matthew Donnelly and bassist Jonas Parmelee, who create a perfect backdrop for the blues chords and skillful guitar solos that abound on “Last American Band.” Catch the album’s release party at Fete Music in Providence on November 29 - Jake Reed
