ALBUM REVIEW: Nervous ‘Decode’

A great many talented individuals have come from of Boston throughout history — New Kids on the Block, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (and his brother Casey, of course), Aerosmith, Dropkick Murphys, Captain America himself (Chris Evans), Godsmack… the list goes on and on! Needless to say, when I listened to the debut album Decode from Boston-based band Nervous, my expectations were possibly a little higher than they should have been. I wasn’t entirely disappointed.

ALBUM REVIEW: Bleachers ‘Strange Desire’

I first heard of indie pop band Bleachers – created by Jack Antonoff (best known as lead guitarist of fun.) and comprised of Antonoff with his pre-fun. band Steel Train – through a lovely little app called Spotify. Thanks to an advertisement for Bleachers’ incredibly catchy hit single, “I Wanna Get Better,” the song became an instant personal favorite shortly after clicking on the ad. Go give it a listen and try to tell me the same didn’t happen for you. In fact, listen to the whole album, which is…

ALBUM REVIEW: Information Society ‘Land of the Blind’

Information Society’s new EP, Land of the Blind, is unlike anything out there. How, you might ask? Well, do you know of any other 6-song album that is essentially multiple different versions of the same song? Land of the Blind marks the reunion of the original Information Society founding members (from 1982), and with an album like this, it looks like they’re taking things slow to get back into the swing of things. Land of the Blind was released March 4, and  is, however, meant to be a teaser for…

ALBUM REVIEW: Color War ‘It Could Only Be This Way’

In modern electronica, much of the genre can seem like uninspired noise. But then a band like Color War comes along and proves otherwise. Color War provides a perfect album, with a sound comprised of singer Lindsay Mound’s incredibly vocals fused with guitar/synth/programming bandmate Justin “Billy J” Lin’s equally impressive beats. Color War’s debut full-length album, It Could Only Be This Way, is described by their label Four Horseman Records’ as an “arsenal of layered synthesizers, guitars, and stripped down beats.” If you want to describe it so simply, that…
