It seems like barely a few weeks back we were waxing poetic on the Money Fight release featuring the man who has made it his mission to inform you, the music lovin’ public, of what sounds should be hanging out in your headspace. The man in question is not only a non-stop treasure trove of musical delights produced by his own hand but also a great supporter and promoter of countless other rad artists around town and beyond that you should most definitely be hip to. Hell, researching the artists that helped out here on Several Nudes has caused a deep dive on a slew of other bands and albums so even when he’s not trying, Dug McCormack is helping spread the gospel of righteous Rawk to the people.[Read more…]
High Holy Hell this is one helluva massive mammer jammer of musical excellence across thirty three tracks of diverse, driven Rawk. When you look up “Boston sound” in Webster’s dictionary (Which is obviously a thing in ANY dictionary), hopefully Money Fight gets a shout out next to the Bosstones, Dropkick Murphys, and Modern Lovers because, while a mixed batch of genres, the whole of Smells Like Money Fight: The Complete Basement Recordings is inherently Bean Town bravado through and through.
But I digress.[Read more…]
Boston is lucky to have an artist like Dug McCormack. From Psychic Dog to BALUCHITHERIUM and more, he presents different facets of Boston Rawk. As a songwriter he’s explored a diverse variety of genres that merges the RAWK with fusion, jazz elements even and an all around experimental style wrapped in a cushy rawk and/or roll package for the people. And as a vocalist, McCormack continues that diverse trend with a style that constantly evolves and adapts which brings us to his latest project, Square Ape, and the brand new EP that just saw the light of day thanks to pent up creativity while stuck in the house (Thanks, pandemic?)[Read more…]
This is a pretty big deal for us. Not only do we have the first review of the debut full-length from Boston’s BALUCHITHERIUM but we ALSO are honored to host an exclusive stream of said album before it releases on November 1st. Pretty cool, right? But definitely not as cool as the album we’re about to wax poetic on.[Read more…]
I don’t know if BALUCHITHERIUM is a band that’s supposed to be in all caps but once you hear the bombastic decadence of the rawk within their first two debut singles then you’ll agree that if that name isn’t supposed to be in big letters then the music they create most definitely warrants such a grand declaration.[Read more…]
Bands like Psychic Dog make me continually proud that the Boston music scene is STILL as awesome and vibrant as it is. Forget your Dropkick Murphy’s and your Mighty Mighty Bosstones and even your Standells! If you’re searching for a “sound” that realy captures the sounds of a town then we implore you to check out Lunch Went Well which is out now. [Read more…]
