Talking about all the great music that came out of Boston and New England last year!

Don’t forget to check out our 2017 roundup of music from Boston/NE!


Kirayoshi – Bipolarity

Last year it was Pastoria by Along (aka Jacob Schwartz) that made our funk-loving ears perk up. Bringing even more funk to you this year is Framingham, MA based Kirayoshi (aka Derek Powers) with Bipolarity off of Kirayoshi’s debut Reincarnated Resurrection.

House of Harm – Always

Nice trip down the memory lane – think Joy Division, Depeche Mode and lyrics filled with enough desperation to satisfy an inner goth hidden inside each one of us.

Further Reading: Obscura Undead

Sweetcreem – NO$T

Shamanic space pop from the deepest bowels of Cambridge

Further Reading: comeherefloyd

Troll 2 – Roadkill

Scumfolk is what they call it – a bit of punk, a bit of folk and a bit of death metal, even (read the lyrics)

Hessian – Skull Ring

Heavy dose of that hard and heavy old – no keyboards, no ballads, just plain ‘ol RAWK

Further Reading: Doomed & Stoned

Rene Chambers – Girls From Nowhere

Are there any actual bats in Kremlin? I’m not sure, even though I’m originally from Moscow, but this is a sign that both Rene Chambers and his debut album (called Kremlin Bats) makes you ponder all sorts of interesting questions just as true art should.

Further Reading: Kids Like You & Me

Salem Wolves – B.D.F.

They’re howling at the Du loudly while talking about BDF (take your pick – Best Dorks Forever, Beer Drinking Fool and Belligerently Drunk Friday (all courtesy of Urban Dictionary)).

Further Reading: If It’s Too Loud

Kintaan – Gretchen

That is one scary Gretchen right there – she’s pounding on that metal all day not unlike early Swans or Godflesh

Further Reading: This is Darkness

The Laces – Laguna Beach

Sure seems like a nice place be, even when your parents don’t want you to hang around it

Cosmic Johnny – Houston

Big riffs, big riffs and emotional breakdowns – they still matter, even though no one in the outer space can hear them, since we’re all alone

Further Reading: Hooligan Mag

Wendy Eisenberg – Sol Lewitt

Jammin econo and thinking about the structures

Further Reading: Something Else!

Coffin Salesman – Bloody Knuckles

Looking for an engineer while fighting the devil with both hands

Further Reading: Thrash N’ Bang!!!

Helenor – Bloodshot Eyes

Rich and gorgeous Beatlesque harmonies captured by David DiAngelis

Further Reading: The Partae

Edge Petal Burn – Letters

Its usually not a good idea to read other people’s letters, but this might be an exception – mostly due to an enigmatic voice hidden inside

Further Reading: Short Line

Dyr Faser – The Swan

Graceful swan of never (with apologies to Billy)

Skyjelly – Accidents

Some accidents are meant, as they make the world a (much) better place – this is one of them

Temporary Eyesore – Spun

Lke Shaggs in the mood for a melody (with apologies to Mr. Plant)

Forn – Manifestations of the Divine Root

Like facing an angry beast while in a barely lit cavern

The Drunk Monkeys – Feelin’

Eye of the tiger filled with thick and creamy psychedelic pop


Blessed be all the cute little glitches happening while this laptop is being cremated
