Willzyx demolishes in new record "The Raw Congenital Complex," plays Koto 11.13

Creepy and satisfying is the noise rock of Manchester, New Hampshire's Willzyx. For metal aficionados, the group's latest effort, The Raw Congenital Complex, is jam-packed with tracks that ooze with rage and demolish melodic structures. Take the furiously-paced track "Cauterized Eye" as a prime example of the band's tendency for bursts of distorted vocals, synthesized strains of doom, and eerie overtures. Other songs like "Cast Off" drift into more serene territories, and with patience and a hypnotizing guitar riff bubble into thick, steely-cold compositions. The band is a year-long Halloween special that is too damn creepy and good to pass up. The band's next gig is booked at Koto in Salem, Massachusetts, on November 13th. Listen to the mechanic bassline that leads "Calloused and Cynical" streaming below and drown in the math-rock madness. - Rene Cobar, photo by Selena Barker





Rachel Sumner releases haunting track "Between The Bars," plays Lizard Lounge 10.31

Boston's Rachel Sumner's 2019 has been quite eventful: April, June, August, and October single releases all worthy of recognition. The latest of these singles "Between The Bars" displays the singer-songwriter's trademark vocal melodies, known to haunt the mind with their atmospheric nature, giving way to graceful acoustic guitar solos tinged in a bluegrass spirit. The newest track from Sumner balances both light and dark sonic colors that elicit from the listener both hope and despair; the experience is all up to you. Perhaps perfect for the chilly and spirited night ahead, Rachel will be performing her haunting tracks at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge on October 31st. Stream "Between The Bars" by Rachel Sumner below. - Rene Cobar





Nick Zaino previews new record with passionate track "Pour Me A River"

Lynn, Massachusetts' Nick Zaino, is a perfect piece in the colorful puzzle of New England's music scene. The serenity found in folk music is captured in his latest single, "Pour Me A River," which is a story of devotion told with nothing more than a mighty acoustic guitar composition and Zaino's country-cordial vocals. The new track is engulfed in a feverish excitement that radiates with each chord change and drops embers in the minds of listeners: a song memorable enough to have one singing along. The bareness of the song is part of the charm and fits perfectly with the honest ode to a loved one. The new track is a preview of Zaino's upcoming album, Habitual Salvation, due out November 29th. We are streaming the new song for you below and looking forward to Habitual Salvation out soon. - Rene Cobar





A Deli Premiere: "New York City" by Lindsay Foote

Heartfelt and elegant is the new single by Boston's Lindsay Foote: "New York City" is an ode to a fragile dream broken by reality, its shards buried deep in the bright guitar riffs and passionate vocals. It was not so long ago that Lindsay grappled with the tough decision that inspired the track that she recalls "'New York City' was inspired by a decision I faced in my own life. A few years ago, I was deciding whether or not to move from Toronto to New York City with my boyfriend at the time. We were going through tough times in our relationship, and part of me hoped that a fresh start in a new city would fix it. Deep down, though, I knew that it wouldn't. This song is about facing that decision and finally being honest with myself about what I wanted." The confession is a liberating one as "New York City" boasts Lindsay's Americana style of music with a graceful abandonment of reservations; each instrument builds on the next with class: a clean and refined bassline accompanies a snappy snare beat that races alongside a reverberating electric guitar and Lindsay's intrepid vocals toward an honest end. Americana/indie artists like Brandi Carlile and Katie Toupin exude sincerity in each lyric and captivate wholly, Foote shows she has that and then some. Lindsay will be playing at the Aeronaut Brewery in Somerville on November 13th; we are proud to premiere "New York City" below for New England and beyond. - Rene Cobar





Hallelujah the Hills previews new album with dual singles

The cool winds of the fall are settled in, but New England bands are still bringing in the heat. Such is the case with Boston’s Hallelujah the Hills, whose dual singles are hot alt-rock music to gather around. “Folk Music Is Insane” is melodic in the verses and destructive in the choruses: from grand piano embellishments to swelling orchestral instrumentation drowned in guitar distortion, you never quite know where the song is headed, and that is alright. “Running Hot With Fate” has more of an indie feel to it, with harmonies glazed atop a steady rhythm section that drives the song forward with sweet style (you can’t help but be infected by the groove). Hallelujah the Hills is not afraid to go big; the band stands out by blending indie rock with a distinct Americana touch—now that is different. The singles are part of the band’s upcoming album, I’m You, which is slated for release November 15, 2019. Stream “Running Hot With Fate” below to start your week right. - Rene Cobar
