Almost Owen is out here with your midsummer anthem

The production of “We Out Here” impresses with its textured vocal harmonies and cheery chants that create the merry atmosphere Owen is known for. We dare say too that Owen has a swagger in his delivery that completes the summer package.

Them Fantasies serve a rich blend of styles in debut record "Caffeine Queen"

Spiffed up and ready to take on the world are Boston's Them Fantasies, a well-polished group with a brand spanking new debut record. The band's Caffeine Queen is an alt-rock treat with an unquestionable aroma of jazz and hints of pop. "Hook-Up Culture" amps up the groove factor with a slithery-entrancing bassline while "Melatonin" lets the guitar solos and anthemic choruses fly for a double shot of alt-rock goodness. In "Acid Anna," the band shines as the jazz influences take over and provide comforting escapism from reality. From the speedy "Plastic Heart" to the reggae-soaked "Them Fantasies," it all comes together sumptuously. Having returned from an East Coast tour, Them Fantasies are sure to let the album's steam propel them to the next set of gigs. Enjoy our favorite track from the new record "Acid Anna" below. - Rene Cobar

Pretty Saro celebrates latest record with show at Club Passim 07.23

The music of Boston’s Pretty Saro has a shimmer to it, a softness that soothes the listener while eliciting from the same a smile or two. It is the storytelling in each song that makes this folk group so intriguing: stories of love found and lost out west and of towns long disremembered all come to life among the myriad of string instrument harmonies and fine vocal melodies. Racing Back to You is the band’s latest record, perfectly encapsulating the spirit of New England folk music. Each track offers a story seemingly unconnected that finds a way to weave itself into a larger tale throughout the record. The themes of friendship, love, and home longing all help to make Racing Back to You a relatable album that deserves a good listen. Pretty Saro is celebrating the release of the record with a performance at Club Passim in Cambridge on July 23rd. We are streaming “Hindsight” for you below. - Rene Cobar
