WTBU fundraiser at Great Scott on 4/18

QUILT

The bands with the most buzz in the blog bin will rock Great Scott's socks off this Sunday to help raise funds for WTBU, the “beat of Boston University”. Look for the two Worcester wunderkinder (and Burning Mill Records labelmates) Golden Girls and Dom to serve up fuzzed-out, acid-washed houseparty pop. Count on Quilt, who recently got nominated for “Best Garage/Psych” band by the Boston Phoenix, to bring some folk flavors. Ecstatic Peace’s the Lord Jeff can play it loud or soft and rock either way, while Jamaica Plain’s Turtle Ambulance will Ja-Maic’ you crazy with his island rhythm-influenced, sample-saturated instrumentals. It’s a great bill (and there may even be some surprise additions, so stay tuned) for a great cause. Great Scott - 1222 Commonwealth Avenue, Allston MA 02134 - 18+ - 5 bux - 8pm

Interview with Jeff Prystowsky from The Low Anthem

lowanthem

The Low Anthem dug their heels deep into the New England folk rock music circuit with cleverly crafted musical arrangements and a well-articulated sound that vaulted them into an all-inclusive global kudos. This trio turned quartet stands at the forefront of an abundant arsenal of off-beat instruments, which they employ to resonate the musical byproducts of their inventively framed themes. On the brink of their inaugural U.S. headlining tour, Jeff conversed with us about hitting the road, new additions, the weight of kinship and a followup record. The Low Anthem will be touring New England through 17-24.

Deli: Can you talk to me about the European Tour you guys just got back from?

Jeff: Sure. European touring is really great for an American band, at least speaking from my own experience. We’ve had just a great time in Europe. We have been over there four times now and each time has been really special and we’ve had great shows. On this last tour, we played a lot of great theaters, like Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, which is one of the most beautiful theaters I’ve played in. As well as the great music hall in Belgium called AB and a great one in Amsterdam called the Paradiso, an old converted church that's now a music venue. It makes it so much easier to put on a great show when you are playing in a venue that has a certain character to it, you know? It really helps for the show and for the performance. We’ve had great tours in Europe and we will be going back again in August to play the festival season there.

Interview with Margaret Glaspy

margaret glaspy

Singer/songwriter, Margaret Glaspy came to Boston three years ago on a grant from the National Foundation for the Advancement of Arts. Since then, she’s been rocking the folk scene, regularly headlining at Club Passim, who has just given her an Iguana Music Award. As she settles into a Tuesday night residency at the Lizard Lounge for April, Glaspy talked to the Deli about the Boston scene, finding her voice as a songwriter and the power of acoustic music.

DELI: You come from California?

Margaret Glaspy: Red Bluff. It’s this tiny little town in northern California, kind of conservative and…interesting (laughs). We were definitely the weird family.

DELI: How so?

MG: It was definitely a small town vibe, lots of cattle and county fairs and rodeos and stuff…not that all that stuff isn’t great but we were kind of on a different path.

April 2010
Sodafrog
"Hang the Moon
"
mp3

Sodafrog’s debut release, Hang the Moon is a beautiful album, three years in the making. What amazed me about this album is that Tom Janovitz, the talent behind Sodafrog, plays eight instruments on the album including the Chinese erhu and all the lead vocals. It is meticulously written, produced and recorded by Janovitz himself at “his place in Somerville” which really adds an impressive element to the album. No, element is an understatement. The quality of the sound on this album is truly gorgeous and I am extremely impressed.  It is obvious when an artist has put tremendous effort into their work to make it perfect and the end product glows with the labor and time that went into it. It makes an album very unique and gives it a pure personality. The songs vary in styles but root in American blues and indie folk-rock. The lyrics are balladistic and the stories are emotionally dark at times. “Central Nonsense” is a story about a girl who wants “more, more, more” the glockenspiel adds a jovial accent to the keep-on-truckin’ tempo and encouraging lyrics. It’s borderline poppy and is catchy as hell, I woke up with it stuck in my head. “Chances at Sea” is my favorite track on the album, composed of dire and wintery lyrics, “Don’t matter much anymore/the TV is still broken/you’re running out of books/the guitar is still missing all its strings”. The vocals are eerie and there are ghosts in the chorus. The song is beautiful and dark and sad. It is the only song on the album where Janovitz plays everything. The album is tight and the tracks are diverse. Hang the Moon is a shining example where hard work pays off. Sodafrog will be celebrating the release of Hang the Moon with a two day extravaganza at Plough and Stars in Cambridge on Thursday April 22nd and Friday April 23rd. Sodafrog will be playing with a full band including members of Mean Creek and Molly Coddle. http://sodafrog.blogspot.com/--Meghan Chiampa
